    7. I just finished Danny Odato s book which was a quick and very good read with well developed characters and stark reality It brought the message home that Romeo and Juliet relationships were not just prevalent in Elizabethan times and prior, but are alive and well in underdeveloped countries in the 21st century Mariyum and Faisal s story is contemporary in the global scope of things.Even though the ending was far from what I would have liked to have seen, I thought it was an appropriate one A goo [...]

    11. I received this book for free through First Reads.It is difficult for me to describe this book though I thoroughly enjoyed reading it It is a modern day Romeo and Juliet, yet in a third world country of Pakistan It was fascinating, yet depressing to read of the culture of Pakistan and the corruption in government as well as to read of a father who virtually gave up on his family because he had no sons, but 5 daughters He becomes so down on the family that he wants to sell his daughters off.The s [...]

    17. I received this book from As others have previously commented, it is a modern day Romeo and Juliet story set in Pakistan The story itself is well told and I did come to care about the main characters I was pleasantly surprised at how well the author reflected the female thought process and emotions The writing is a bit loose and could be tightened up a bit I was very disturbed by the ending such a senseless loss Though the two main characters were facing a lot of obstacles and challenges, I real [...]

    18. This is a Romeo and Juliet story taking place in modern Pakistan It needs to be re edited as there are places where words are left out and names are entered as Xxx where it seems the author intended to go back and enter information There are also places where paragraphs are broken into 2 and other minor errors throughout As for the plot it was a bit too straightforward for me I would have enjoyed just a bit mystery and hope instead of the ending being alluded to throughout Overall though I did [...]

    20. Beautiful and moving, And The Sun Always Sets , leaves you thinking and feeling long after you have turned the last page and safely set the book away More than a love story this opens us to socio political influences as well as religious ideals that are sometimes simultaneously both powerful and tragic As lives are touched and forever altered, we journey with a couple through their fight for a good life, freedom, and the pursuit of happiness.I think A.T.S.A.S is a great read for anyone who crave [...]

    21. I received this book in a giveaway I thought this story was good but very sad Not only does the main story portray a country and time where there is great inequality between men and women put also the rich and the poor I can t imagine being a women in that society and am grateful to have my freedom.I would have given this book stars but I didn t feel a connection to any of the characters but rather felt like I was just reading a summary of what happened.

    22.

    24.

    25. I loved this book The mirror tones to Romeo Juliet were perfectly done The diction and syntax made this book a most favorable one I have a soft spot for the underdog and a remarkable respect for cleverness The author was able to take me by surprise and hid his intentions most tactfully.My only complaint about this book is the way it jumps from first person to third person in the middle of every chapter It s most distracting That, however, is a small detail as it does not take away from the story [...]

    26. Reading And The Sun Always Sets was an amazing experience A well built story about the hardships of lives, of the obstacles that come into everybody s paths and how to overcome them It was an amazing story with the right bit of suspense and humour associated with it to keep the reader attracted towards the book until the end I was curious as to know what happened next and why therefore, I would like to suggest this book to all those readers who love romantic stories with a streak of adventure.

    28. I was lucky enough to win this book in one of the giveaways Although some of the writing could have used an additional edit, the story line itself was very good The story is that of the struggle for love and being together for two Pakistani teenagers With commentary on classism, gender issues, political corruption, and education, it forces the reader to think about all the struggles that people go through on a daily basis.

    29. This is a tragic story of a young girl and her lover that happens too often in eastern societies, in this case in Pakistan The book is well written but I was little distracted by the infiltration of writer s own views about women and religion into the story I think that the story is compelling enough for the reader to form her his own opinion about the horrific conditions women have to live through in male dominated societies I still think that this is a great book and great story overall.

    30. Let me say that the writer of this book is projecting that people should not be limited by circumstances The story of these two lovers is a story that is filled with suspense, emotions, and entertainment You may actually see a tear drop from your eye at one time, while at the other time, you find yourself laughing out loud Very good combination of the different aspects of literature Mature reading, Great writing
