really liked it
bookshelves: family, fiction, india
Read from April 05 to 06, 2012

I was expecting another "My family is so wonderful, but I have other desires and they support me fully once I explain myself"

This was so much more realistic. No family is perfect and Sreenivasan doesn't try to pretend that Indian families are any better than American. They have expectations, they argue, they love, and they learn to move past things. Sometimes I wanted to slap the female lead in this book, but I can almost understand where she's coming from.

All things said, this book is very human.
