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?

A sad but engaging story Jan. 28 2006
By Ayesha Riaz - Published on Amazon.com
The novel was originally written in urdu with the name 'khuda ki basti'. The story is amazing about the cruel realities of life. It shows that not all of us are blessed enough in this world. The book is short yet deep and interesting. A good read for anyone who is interested in reading pakistani authors.
