Sophocles. Kamila Shamsie’s novel titled, Home Fire, offers readers a contemporary version of Antigone. Siblings are strongly bound together, while tension and conflict pull them in multiple directions. Every character is complex and fully developed, and Shamsie’s prose is finely written. Readers who enjoy literary fiction are those most likely to enjoy this novel.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
