Read in November, 2010

I read the first three stories, and got part way through the 4th. I put the book down, and somehow couldn't summon enough motivation to finish. This wasn't a bad book, I didn't hate it by any means. It simply didn't pull me in. Each story seemed like a slightly different variation of the last. As I read, the same themes of inter-generational conflict of Bengali-US immigrants were recycled each time. Ok, I kept thinking, I get the point. Maybe I'll come back and finish it some other time, but for now I need something with a different flavor.
