I found out about this book through Amazon and decided to buy it. When it came I realized I know the family the book was about, a Hindi family living in Ubud, Bali, where my siblings and I had stayed in 1999.
So far its been a lot of fun.
2.5 stars really. I enjoyed the book, but it was slow-going. Not terrifically well-written but full of small insights and anecdotes and written with a lot of heart. Added depth to my own (much shorter) experience of also living with a Balinese family. It was fun to recognize cultural aspects and places from my time there.... but as a literary work.... so-so.

trying to get a feel for Bali before we leave in 2 days.
some cute anecdotes, but the writing is mediocre and strained.
Captivates all the reasons why i LOVE Bali
