I read about the other americans by Laila Lalami and it sounded interesting. It’s the story of a family whose patriarch is killed in a hit-and-run accident and how they both cope with this loss and solve the murder mystery. I liked most of this book. The characters were interesting and the story was engaging. However, ultimately, I was disappointed. I thought the ending lacked ooompf and overall, it was unsatisfying. If I were you, I would give this one a pass.
