What I liked about this book was the way it took me into a community that I would not otherwise be privy to. To read about the ins and outs of the lives of Indo-Pakistani families all over the world was fun and engaging.

That being said, the characters felt a bit two dimensional at times. It was hard for me to believe their motivations.

Finally, I thought some of the elements of the plot predictable, and the surprise (won't ruin it) was surprising, but seemed kind of trite. Concocted to make the ending zippy and more believable. Eh.

All in all though, a good read, and I am glad I read it.
