☯Bettie☯ Brick Lane?


message 2: by Wanda (new)

Wanda I hope this list does not become polluted by authors behaving badly. It would be a great reference point from which to select good reads about India. **crosses fingers**


message 3: by Clyde (last edited Aug 27, 2013 09:45PM) (new)

Clyde wondering if that last comment was aimed at authors who add their own books. In which case I've removed "Memories with Maya" which is a hard science fiction novel with over 70% of the story set in Bombay - India.
** edit ** I cant seem to remove it, but I've un-voted it.

Should be deleted IMHO. Not set in India. (Besides, deals chiefly with the Bangladeshi community, and as someone pointed out in the comments to another "India" list, Bangladesh is a separate country ... even though one also on the Indian subcontinent!)

ETA: Now is deleted.

Looks like you managed to remove it after all (sometimes it takes a while for an "unvote" to stick). Thanks for being a gentleman! Not all authors are so understanding, alas.

That said, I think Wanda's comment was chiefly aimed at those authors who spam entire pages' worth of listopia lists with their books, often regardless of (or even in direct contradiction to) a list's topic ... and then get a bunch of friends or flat-out sock puppet accounts to vote those books to the top of those lists. (AND get all defensive and worked-up about it if called on their misbehavior.) You don't seem to be doing that.

** Hint: Your votes will stand out even less as "suspicious" (read: self-promotional spam) to Goodreads librarians if you find other books to vote for/add to the lists you're voting on as well. Since you only voted on lists where you seem to be familiar with the topic, I don't think that should be too difficult? -- The key thing you don't want to engage in, though, is spam and sock puppetry.

Yours is not a genre I read, but I do wish you best of luck with your books!

Agreed!

Clyde Thanks Themis-Athena.
If anyone else does find that MwM qualifies as a book set in India, do add :)
Kind Regards,


message 8: by Stop33 (new)

Stop33 Ondaatje's "Anil's Ghost" is set in Sri Lanka.

True. Removed.
