The book is a few short stories of second generation Bengalis in the US. Good storytelling that makes the mundane interesting.
I wish I would have read Isabelle's review before wasting a credit:
"It was so uninteresting to me that I hardly could go to the second story...In fact, I didn't and will not try listen to the rest of it."
As I just did the same thing. I'll keep it on my Ipod when I run out of things to do, I just might go to book 2.
I enjoy sci-fi, fantasy, non-fiction, historical fiction genres. Liked Stormlight, Mistborn, GoT. Last read: Shadows of Self
This is a book of those bunch of short stories, some of them which are plain right boring and don't reach anywhere with their storyline. All stories have roots to Bengal, India and seriously it wouldn't have made any difference otherwise. Definitely overrated. Writing this review, I don't even remember some of the stories. Phew...
I think if I were of this culture it may have more meaning. To me it was boring and lacked anything to make me keep listening. I am only half way through and I will not finish this book.
