An excellent read. Keeps your interest alive till the last page. After reading, i thought, no wonder this book was banned. Because no one can take direct criticism. But Taslima Nasrin is a bold writer, not constrained by fear of rejection, and so she takes on Congress & BJP as critically as Jamaat-e-islami & Awami League. Kudos to her. But i just wish she had not included the endless statistical details of riots. It spoils the poignant mood of the novel instead of aiding it.
