Roopa Farooki's "Bitter Sweets" is an intriguing story following three generations of a Bengladeshi/Pakistani family. While Farooki's characters are captivating, unfortunately her plot is twisted to the point of extreme cliché. Despite this book's unbelieveable premise and unending coincidences, somehow the main character, Shona, earned my respect through her quest to expose truth for her deceptive family. Farooki also created an interesting theme that truth and deceit are innate qualities, however, this idea was underdeveloped and overstated. Farooki's writing lacked the eeriness and subtleness the plot deserved.
