The worst book I have ever read. Can be listed along with Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children as a sleep inducer. If you are lacking sleep you will find each page make you sleep more heavily.
The writing is highly boring and soporific. It is written only with the intention to make people sleep. The story has nothing to offer by way of good or bad, except sleep.
Have a happy time sleeping through this.
So much hype with Jhumpa Lahiri what with watching the Namesake Movie and The Lowland my eyes had to plugh through a one page hype-write up on Jhumpa Lahiri the next Salman Rushdie on The Hindu MetroPlus in the weekend.
Americans have done a good work with this. With what they like and do the most, making hype.
