Do you think the book would have been more interesting if the author had spent more time developing the Tamil's view of the world as the author did for the Sinhala viewpoint?

The Bamboo Traveler Yes, I agree. There seems to be something missing from the story and I think the Tamil girl's story should have been developed more.
Aruniya Selladurai Agreed! while the rest of the characters' feelings came alive beautifully and deeply affected you, I felt a disconnect with the Tamil family in North.
However, big shout to the author for the brutal honesty in narrating the story. Like she aptly writes - “There are no martyrs here. It is a war between equally corrupt forces.”
PeaceAll Bigi, good question!

Even though it is fiction, Naomi's book is well received.

See under 'book discussion' where I have added some independent sources.
