Oh, it's so difficult to describe what I loved best. This has turned out surprisingly to be my favorite of Irving's novels. Perhaps part of it is that I live in Asia and am interested in the idea of trying to write a novel with a protagonist from a different culture than one's self. But I feel that the book has an incredibly complex layering of plots, and India is a such a perfect context for Irving's style and tone. I love that there is a good old fashioned murder mystery in the story, and meta-layer after meta-layer on top of that, each plotline engaging and moving in and of itself. As complicated as a million piece jigsaw puzzle and yet beautifully laid out.
