Zeitoun by Dave Eggers

Zeitoun tells the story of a successful Syrian-born painting contractor, Abdulrahman Zeitoun,and his family who live in New Orleans.  Zeitoun decides to stay in New Orleans and protect his property while his family flees.

This story was interesting and the author portrayed the Zeitoun family as very likeable, trust-worthy and hard working so you sympathized with them, particularly about the Muslim piece but, it was far too slow in unfolding for my taste..
