It is readable without the cloying prose that has stilted many other books on India, and leaves the reader with a kinship and understanding of the characters that makes a novel truly remarkable. Please read this book, it will make you look at your own life in an entirely different way, and give you and understanding of another part of the world that you may never otherwise gain.
