Changez is a very interesting character that constantly reveals new things about himself. It has become obvious that unspoken communication means more to Changez then conversing. Body language and eye contact seems to be the most powerful. Changez is also very open to learning about different cultures and lifestyles. I like how he compares Pakistani culture with American culture and finds subtle similarities. He understands that there are people very different from him, but that it is a good thing. Changez is very polite, and he makes a lasting impression on the people he meets. Jim even mentions that Changez is very polite. I love reading this book because I feel like I can hear Changez telling his story. He is so wise and has so much to shard with the people he meets, but he never comes off as arrogant. He really gives the reader insight into Pakistani culture. I personally don't know much about
