    (16)

    The place is Sri Lanka, the island nation formerly known as Ceylon, off the southern tip of India, a country steeped in centuries of cultural achievement and tradition - and forced into the late 20th century by the ravages of civil war and the consequences of a country divided against itself. Into this maelstrom steps a young woman, Anil Tissera, born in Sri Lanka, educated in England and America, a forensic anthropologist sent by a human rights group to work with local officials to discover the source of the organized campaigns of murder engulfing the island.

    Story

    Not only because I love Michael Ondaatje, but loved the narrator as well, Alan Cumming. I listened to the book over my 2 week christmas break and could not wait to settle in with it every evening. The story was engrossing and the descriptions of Sri Lanka so vivid I could picture myself there. I would often fall asleep listening and then replay what I missed. Now that I have finished, I want to hear it all over again for details I may not have grasped the first time. Highly recommended.
