    Tale of culture, belief, magic and personal struggle

    Enjoyed the cultural aspect of this book. A good story as long as you are patient and get into the rhythm of the tale. A stand alone book, unlike others I have read. A quiet, interior novel that is magical old school with a personal view of choices and living in a society that challenges your traditions and long held beliefs.

    Mistress of Spices had me interested with the title itself. THe plot was very interesting, not limiting the reader to one character or situation. Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni has an extraordinary talent with Fiction.

    Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni has lived up to her reputation well and does an awesome job with bringing new work of art to her readers.

    Horribly Written

    This book was extremely boring, and very badly written. This author has much better books.

    Beware

    This is a thinly disguised romance novel. A big disappointment.
