A Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers

A Hologram for the King
My rating: 2.8 of 5 stars

This book was well written but depressing and didn’t seem to go anywhere. Eggers presents a reasonably moving depiction of Alan, a who has made some unwise choices and ‘victim’ of offshoring. As a result, he is not well off, financially or emotionally. He also captures Saudi Arabia life and their lack of sense of urgency very well. Overall, this book missed the mark for me and was just sad.
