Read in May, 2012

Beautifully written book - really quite amazing. I picked this up because I very much enjoyed An Atlas of Impossible Longing which I read many years go. Roy is an amazing story-teller - within a few pages (or even paragraphs!), you're swept away to Maya's world in Ranikhet in India. Maya is a young woman who has lost her husband; she travels to this remote mountain village to escape her grief. There are many colorful, endearing characters in this small village - the communications among them and their daily lives is interesting and entertaining. Roy is a very gifted writer - at times, I'd stop and reread a sentence and think - wow, someone actually wrote this! And there's a whole book written just like it! If you appreciate fine writing, this is a book to read.
