it was ok

I found Karma to be a relatively compelling read in which the author made some intriguing choices - particularly mirroring the conflict in India in 1984 with the main characters own heritage. On that basis, it was enlightening and worth the time it took to read it. The fact that that the author was present in India for a short visit at the time period in question adds some credibility to the historical aspects of the narrative, but I still found myself uncomfortable with the idea that it had been written by someone so far removed from that culture. The characters voice judgements of the Indian culture that struck me as the authors voice rather than authentic to the characters that she had created. I also had a hard time buying into the romance, although I think if I were a little younger and more starry eyed, it may have appealed to me more.
