    The Namesake follows the Ganguli family through its journey from Calcutta to Cambridge to the Boston suburbs. When their son is born, the task of naming him betrays the vexed results of bringing old ways to the new world. Named for a Russian writer by his Indian parents in memory of a catastrophe years before, Gogol Ganguli knows only that he suffers the burden of his heritage as well as his odd, antic name.

    "Beautiful story"
    Overall

    This is a beautiful book, loved the movie too. The story gets you involved in how immigrants feel in a new country, how their lives are torn between two countries. The author describes feelings and situations in an very beautiful way.

    In a Greek tavern, high over the small village of Aghia Anna, four people meet for the first time: Fiona, an Irish nurse; Thomas, a Californian academic; Elsa, a German television presenter; and David, a shy English boy. Along with Andreas, the old man who runs the taverna, they become close to each other after witnessing a tragedy when a pleasure steamer catches fire in the harbour.<

    Overall

    Such a lovely book, in the true M%aeve Binchy style. I often listen to audiobooks while at work in my kitchen, and found myself being unhappy when everything was clean and tidy, because I wanted to continue listening!
    With the wind and rain of autumn outside, I still felt the sun of a Greek island coming out of my sound system!
