it was ok
Read in December, 2008

I don't really have many nice things to say about this book. The story is well written but at times I feel Lahiri gets caught up in details that don't really matter. The long chapters were hard to get into and there was really no convenient place to stop...ever. It took a long time for me to connect with the characters but once I did I felt protective of them. The ending was perfect. Just that part sort of redeemed the whole book for me.
