Shaukat Siddiqi has certainly captured my interest with this novel. God's Own Land, in its entirety, is explicit and heartfelt. This is a beautiful novel with great narrative. Siddiqi manages to cultivate the blatant way of life into a beautiful melody with his words, leaving the reader in complete awe at the end. The many anecdotes of lives interwoven together makes the reader think...who is this god and what land is this that he owns?
