Who has read Nadeem Aslam's Maps for Lost Lovers?

I am about half-way through the book at the moment and it is a very beautifully written, extremely accurate portrayal of life in a British Pakistani community. He has nailed the mindset of most first generation desis in England. Stunning. And the language is magnificent and ornately descriptive and lush like the ripest Pakistani mangoes!

Has anyone else read it and what do you think?
