In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet -- sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors -- doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As the violence escalates, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through. Exit West follows the couple as they emerge into an alien and uncertain future, struggling to hold on to each other, to their past, to the very sense of who they are.… (mais)

Well shoot. I was hoping to like this more than I did. Maybe it would have worked better if I'd read it and not listened to it...maybe there was more cerebral stuff going on than I could get just auditorially...and it wasn't any fault of the reader, Hamid himself. There was just something about it that didn't latch on, and I don't know why because all the pieces should be right up my alley. There were moments that tugged at my heartstrings. I must admit, though, that the use of "and" to begin so many sentences got a little grating and/or hilarious because it reminded me of Corey Stoll's Hemingway portrayal in Midnight in Paris. Probably wasn't the intention, but it definitely took me out of the story. ( )

Although Exit West tackles large social issues (war, emigration, religious fundamentalism, and so on), at its heart, it is a story about human relationships, which it portrays so well. I found the narrative voice somewhat detached, but there's quite a bit of emotional power in it. I cried a few times during the dissolution of Saeed and Nadia's relationship and how prayer connected Saeed to his community and his parents. ( )

Mohsin Hamid - Exit West: Timely and subtle, as all fantasy rooted in reality should be. #cursorybookreviews #cursoryreviews ( )
  khage | May 24, 2021 |
Hamid’s aphoristic and controlled language made this a delight to read. The understatedness of the prose was “show, not tell”, allowing readers to confront the raw emotions of war’s violence, the refugee’s plight, and a relationship’s heartrending but unsurprising decay without embellished language as a distraction or crutch. The characters’ unflappable dignity and eventual safe passage give the novel a sense of hope even as it centers on the fallout of forced migration across the world. ( )

Sometimes a novel has so many layers and nuances that I feel at a loss at what to write, and this is the case with this one. On the one hand, it is a novel about migration: The reasons for it, the consequences, the sacrifices people who migrate have to make in order to save other aspects of their lives or their lives at all. On the other hand, it is a novel simply about two characters, their love for each other and how they and this love change over time.
The first part of the novel follows Saeed and Nadia as they live and fall in love in an unnamed city, which could be any city in the Middle East or South Asia. Their city is threatened by militants and war breaks out. What was most impressive to me were the descriptions of daily life in this occupied and later war-torn city.
Nadia and Saeed decide to leave their city through one of the doors that pop up and lead to other parts of the world. Although this is a magical realism element, it almost doesn't feel like one because it is not dwelt on a lot.
The two lovers try to start a new life in foreign places, they move on again, and their relationship changes over time as they adapt to these places and the situations they encounter.
So yes, this novel is not only about migration as such, but about how people change, about what they expect from life, about what binds them together and what separates them, and, as the text states, there is not only migration from place to place but across time as well.
This novel made me reflect on so many things, and above all, it also made me even more aware of what many people have to go through. I thought about the people in my life who have had such experiences. And it even made me reflect on myself and the kinds of migrations I have experienced, although thankfully they were never as extreme as those of many other people.
My only criticism is that I wish that some events would have been narrated a little more detailed. The summarizing style was a bit hard to follow and so I was only able to read a few chapters a time, although the novel is not long. On the other hand, I appreciated the style a lot because it felt authentic and in tune with the message of the text as I understood it. ( )

Sortida a Occident, de Mohsin Hamid, comença sent una història d’amor íntima i emocionant i acaba sent una profecia novel·lada sobre el futur que, globalment, ens espera. En Saeed i la Nadia són dos joves que viuen en un país del qual no se’ns diu el nom però que per les seves característiques -és musulmà i està governat per un règim autoritari contra el qual se subleven milícies integristes- resulta familiar. L’amor entre en Saeed, retret i conservador, i la Nadia, valenta i independent, creix a mesura que el seu país s’esllavissa per l’abisme de la guerra, cosa que els obliga a fugir. És en aquest punt que Hamid es treu de la màniga un cop d’efecte argumental que desplaça les coordenades de gènere de la novel·la. Resulta que, arreu del planeta, han començat a aparèixer portes secretes i especials que transporten qui les travessa a un altre indret del globus. La introducció d’un element tan explícitament fantasiós fa que, després de creure durant tot el terç inicial que ens trobàvem davant d’un relat realista (si bé l’autor va preparant el que vindrà mitjançant unes escenes breus i estranyes), de sobte ens descobrim abocats a una mena de faula futurològica.

Exit West is animated – confused, some may think – by this constant motion between genre, between psychological and political space, and between a recent past, an intensified present and a near future. It’s a motion that mirrors that of a planet where millions are trying to slip away “from once fertile plains cracking with dryness, from seaside villages gasping beneath tidal surges, from overcrowded cities and murderous battlefields”.
