The premise of this story is terrific, but I was surprised the narrative was so boring after the buzz and positive reviews Exit West has received. The characters are uninteresting and there’s almost no dialogue. And Hamid would have flunked a show don’t tell writing test.

However, there are other opinions:

“This is the best writing of Hamid’s career… Readers will find themselves going back and savoring each paragraph several times before moving on. He’s that good. … Breathtaking.” —NPR.org
