some wonderful prose here some very visual observations about the price of violence and revolution At times I did feel that Lahiri was portraying her characters at a remove an almost emotionless

part of your story aroused some of those out of sight sentiments I was missing since the beginning The character of Bela and then redemption of Gauri made this book a pleasing reading experience for
