A wonderfully complex story of an independent woman in post Independence period in India, her good choices and her bad choices, and her devotion to her son. Beautifully interwoven characters and stories. Manil Suri is a writer i would always trust to tell a great story.

Wonderful writing, but I guess I was left dissatisfied with the ending.

This book is a patchwork of Indian stereotypes, but without subtlety. The book is a self-conscious effort to become the definitive post-colonial novel with perhaps an eye to a movie script. I thought it was tedious. Pity, because Suri is, otherwise, a good writer. Try Amitav Ghosh if you want the real deal.
