really liked it

Immense and sprawling semi-autobiographical novel about an expat in India (I read the Kindle edition which meant that its length wasn't immediately apparent).

The characters are often difficult to tell apart, and the author is lousy at following show-don't-tell -- I can't count the number of people that the narrator immediately "loves" without me understanding why. But it's a passionate and beautiful novel, and I'm glad to have read it.
