really liked it

Read from November 06 to 10, 2011

The latest novel by Thrity Umrigar, takes a look at the lives of four college friends, thirty years after their university days. They have lost touch with each other, but now, Armaiti is facing death with an inoperable brain tumor, and she wants to gather her friends close to her one last time before she leaves this earth.

Umrigar’s The Space Between Us is a memorable favorite, and the The World We Found is a wonderful exploration of friendship and the inevitable changes that come along with growing up and growing older. Here’s some high points: 1) Thrity Umrigar again focuses on women’s issues in this novel; 2) there are several interesting story lines that all connect with the friendships between the women; and 3) the icing on the cake was a real glimpse of life in modern India, and a telling of some recent history that has affected the dynamics between the various groups living there.

In short – I loved it!
