This, while not a book that stands as an epitome of literary art... is nonetheless a thoroughly enjoyable read, with an accurate depiction of middle-class life in India: a letter-writer (a dying breed), a housewife, and a college student who didn't pass last year, and is retaking his final year. There are some brilliant moments and the characterization is well done, with none of the characters being quite a cardboard cut-out: time is spent showing the motivations for each, and getting into their brains. If you're looking for a taste of India - but not a melodramatic one - then this is definitely worth a read.
