"From the best-selling author of The Monk of Mokha, a spare, powerful story of two men, Western contractors sent to work far from home, tasked with paving a road to the capital in a dangerous and largely lawless country. Four and Nine are partners, working for the same company, sent without passports to a nation recovering from ten years of civil war. Together, operating under pseudonyms and anonymous to potential kidnappers, they are given a new machine, the RS-90, and tasked with building a highway that connects the country's far-flung villages with the capital. Four, nicknamed the Clock, is one of the company's most experienced operators, never falling short of his assigned schedule. He drives the RS-90, stopping only to sleep and eat the food provided by the company. But Nine is an agent of chaos: speeding ahead on his vehicle, chatting and joking with locals, eating at nearby bars and roadside food stands, he threatens the schedule, breaks protocol, and endangers the work that they must complete in time for a planned government parade. His every action draws Four's ire, but when illness, corruption, and theft compromise their high-stakes mission, Four and Nine discover danger far greater than anything they could pose to each other"--… (mere)

Twee mannen, ze hebben om veiligheidsredenen geen namen, de 4 en de 9, zijn aan het werk om een nieuwe weg van 230 kilometer aan te leggen met behulp van de RS-80, de eenmans-asfaltmachine. 4 is secuur en zakelijk, 9 is een vrijgeest en niet zo'n fan van regels. 9 bezorgt 4 stress. En dan wordt 9 ernstig ziek....
Een interessante blik op twee mannen en hun totaal verschillende kijk op het leven. En dat terwijl ze noord en zuid verbinden van een land dat onlangs door oorlog is verscheurd. Het einde is verrassend, de grote parade komt er niet, de militairen nemen het land weer over... ( )

Sort of enjoyed reading it, mostly. But what a downer, and I don’t feel like I gained anything from reading it. At least it was short. ( )

4.5 stars. This book isn’t for everyone, but I loved it. The writing, the pacing, and the ending were perfect. So much to unpack in this short book about a long road. ( )

Classic Eggers, this story centered on the complications of the aftermath of a civil war in a foreign land. The characters are robust and interesting. Dion Graham, stellar as always, narrates. ( )
