it was ok
Read in July, 2012

This was an easy to read story about a group of people who lived in the same street as children when the Queen's silver jubilee celebrations took place. The main character is Satish, who is now a successful children's cardiac surgeon, and the story flits between current time and the day of the jubilee street party when - in the grand tradition of story-telling - 'something happened that would change the course of those children's lives for ever'. I thought the storyline was quite good, it wasn't your run-of-the-mill secret from the past, but I found the book a bit of a lightweight overall. I wasn't expecting it to be heavy going, but I never really got to give a damn about the characters. I've given it 2 stars because that means 'it was ok', which is how I feel about it - I certainly didn't hate it, I just would have liked a bit more depth to the personalities and their stories.
