Beautifully read, this book draws you into a world so far from the reality most of us know. The storytelling is somewhat reminiscent of Anansi Boys, with elaborate interaction of gods, man, and nature, though the main story line is firmly set in "contemporary" India (the rural Bangladesh border area). The main female character is a field biologist, and the book offers insight into the lifestyle she has chosen. While the ending is not unexpected, the book is entertaining and enjoyable, and is suitable for sophisticated young adults as well.
