really liked it

Extremely skillful prose. There's a very alive tension within the spaces of this book and eats at you while you get sucked into the story. Maybe it's just me, but definitely felt like there was a very clear and apparent Jhumpa Lahiri influence present, especially during the historical family exposition.

I'm stuck between a 3 and 4 because I felt the climax was a bit of a letdown — it seems deeply uncharacteristic and unlikely that two people who have spent so much of their lives dealing with acute paranoia would be so careless and Nisha's character felt unresolved at the end — but ultimately decided the author's talent at storytelling is worth more than her flawed storyline, if that makes sense. Looking forward to reading more from her.
