The Queue by Basma Abdel Aziz is something I’ve been dying to read since I first head it mentioned on one of the BookRiot podcasts. Unfortunately for me, it isn’t anywhere close to releasing in India and if I have to get it shipped to me it would cost a lot of monies. So I was exhilarated when I was asked to review an audiobook service, estories, and found this book on the list of new releases. Needless to say I clicked buy amidst much squealing and started listening immediately.
STORY AND WRITING
The Queue is a dystopian story following a few interconnected members of society in the Middle East after a failed political uprising that is not so affectionately called “The Disgraceful Events.”
