Publisher's Summary

After three years of dating, Anita Jain finally got fed up with the New York singles scene. As her Indian parents continued to pressure her to find a mate, Jain couldn't help asking herself the question: Is arranged marriage really any worse than Craigslist? Full of romantic chance encounters, nosy relatives, and dozens of potential husbands, Marrying Anita is a refreshingly honest look at our own expectations and the modern search for the perfect mate.

Great story, terrible narration

What made the experience of listening to Marrying Anita the most enjoyable?

Great story; very relatable.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator mispronounces every Hindi word and name of an Indian location, and even trips over some of the english words.

Any additional comments?

Might be more fun to read the book on your own, rather than listen to it on tape.
