I usually read customer reviews before I buy a book. Didn't with this one. Lesson learned. Very stylist writng, but for a good part of the book, I was lost. Moreover, I'm older and have no patience for spending my dwindling hours trying to figure out intricate clues that allow me to follow the story. I consider that to be the author's job. A book shouldn't be work; it should be fun. The book also had a decidely dark edge. The upside is that it's less than half as long as Edgar Sawtelle. Consider yourself warned as to both books.

I only bothered to finish it because hey, once you're halfway through a 200 page book, you might as well finish it to make the arduous journey through the first half worthwhile. Highly uninteresting novel, and the writer has a cringe-inducing 'style' that is aaaaaall about gratuitous commas to break up run-on sentences. Don't bother! Don't bother.

I had such high expectations for this novel. It started out ok but afterwhile, I got lost and really bored with the book that I couldn't even finish it. Sometimes she rights in a story telling way, another in first person, it got too confusing afterwhile.

Jha crafts a well interwoven story of reflection and prediction through changes of narrative style and character emphasis. It is an encapsulating novel that creates a resonant narrative voice in your mind. THis is the voice that carries you through the past, both imagined and real. The reader gets a sepulchral glimpse of life in Calcutta as told through the painful anecdotes of a young boy, brother, and middle aged man.
