    Story

    One of the most talked-about books of the year, A Fine Balance captures all the cruelty and corruption, dignity and heroism, of India in 1975. It is an Oprah Book Club selection, and has won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in fiction, the Giller Prize, and the Commonwealth Writers Prize. Mistry "needs no infusion of magic realism to vivify the real. The real world, through his eyes, is magical," says The New York Times.

    Justin says: "A Fine Balance"
    "DON'T RENT THIS UNABRIDGED VERSION"
    Overall

    This unabridged version of the book loses the nuance and beauty that make Mistry's writing great. The reader may be a wonderful cookbook writer, but she's a bored, flat, and grating as a narrator.

    Please join me in protesting the lack of an UNABRIDGED VERSION.
