really liked it

I read this right before I left for Bangladesh--it's set in the Sundarbans, the largest mangrove forest in the world, which is partly in Bangladesh and partly in India. It was great to get a feel for the culture, a little bit of the language and the landscape. I hope to visit that area soon! The book is set in modern times and follows a marine biologist who studies river dolphins. She travels with a local fisherman who doesn't speak any english. The story also follows a couple other characters through some political upheaval and personal changes.
