The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid

This story was extra great as an audiobook because listening to the first person narration, felt like he, who might or might not be a Princeton-educated Pakistani terrorist, was talking to you, except that you were a white American male, who might or might not be some sort of CIA kind of agent. What was amazing was how he was mostly talking about a not quite requited love story between the narrator and a charming but troubled affluent white girl he met at college, interwoven with a diatribe on the post-911 American War on Terror, with growing tension.
