On the one hand, the general opinion is that this book isn't very good. On the other, a couple of heavily bearded Muslim gentlemen were found guilty the other day of trying to firebomb the publisher. Well, I'm willing to be reasonable. They stop firebombing, I'll stop reading crap novels that allegedly insult the Prophet's memory. It's a good offer. Think about it.
