Rakhi Dalal I share your opinion on this :)

Clif Hostetler Would you feel differently about the story if it were placed in another country? Say, Bangladesh for example.

No. I do not think so. But if I knew nothing of the country, say, if it was set in Bolivia, I might believe it to be representative and enjoy the story without my own biases affecting my reading.

Thanks for asking that.

Sorento62 Well, maybe I'll kick this off my way too crowded to-read list, then. Thanks for letting us know, Riku.


Tanja Berg I wondered about that too.


Ashutosh Chaudhary My thoughts, too.


Makrand I was truly disappointed after reading this as well!
