A Hologram For The King is a very well written book that doesn't need crazy plot twists or unnecessary characters. Dave Eggers writes like a nice breeze on a fall afternoon, cozy and pleasant. The plot is a simple one, but that's not a bad thing. A Man has to go to Saudi Arabia to hopefully get a job that never seems to come. Simple but beautiful. Don't see the lackluster movie.
A struggling American businessman travels to a rising Saudi Arabian city with the hopes of securing a contract that will earn him a commission large enough to stave off his economic woes and hold his family together.
