Geeta's Reviews > Karma

Recommended for: Teens and up
I loved this novel. At first, I was a little wary for the "in verse" part wasn't quite a Geeta-book. However, after reading the first few pages I was hooked. This is a story about a massacre that took place nearly 30 years ago in India. After Indira Gandhi's death, there was turmoil in India and thousands died. In the midst of all this was a young Canadian-Indian, Maya, who can't find her father and becomes lost in this unknown land. Along comes Sandeep and they fall in love. What made this story so wonderful is because it was in verse. I loved Ostlere's writing style and that I could relate to some of Maya's feelings. This book stole my heart (and some of my tears), and I could not believe how much I enjoyed it despite taking a chance with it. This is a must-read for all who enjoy Indian culture. I hope you all do read it for it will make an impact.
