    Good plot, falls short on writing style

    Ladies Coupe tells the story of 45 year-old 'spinster' Akhila, and the 5 women she shares a train compartment with one night. While some parts of Akhila's story and one of the other women's stories were very intriguing, I dont think Nair did a good job in making the the complete story gel. For instance, in order for voice to be different, the writing must feel different, it must read different. Just adding a few chemistry words to one story does not change the voice. Even though there are 6 different stories going on, the voice never truly changes. The voice of the old woman is the same voice as the teenage girl, and usually, in real life, the same is not true. The transitions when each woman tells her story could have also been a bit smoother, and some of the stories could have been a bit less predictable, and much more believable, but I suppose that is part of the entertainment of the book. It is a a good story line. And a relatively quick read. Recipes to some of the dishes talked about in the book are also included, which I thought was a nice touch. Finally, the book really does examine to the changing condition/state of women in India.
