The tale of Lata and her mother's attempts to find her a suitable husband, through love or through exacting maternal appraisal. Set in post-Independence India and involving the lives of four large families and those who orbit them, it is also a vast panoramic exploration of a whole continent at a crucial hour as a sixth of the world's population faces its first great General Election and the chance to map its own destiny.

8 out of 10

I enjoyed reading this book and learned a bit more about India in the process.

This 1,474 page book is Team Shire's entry for the Marathon event in the Bookcrossing Olympics 2013.

Edit: I forgot to include my favourit quote from this book - "Being a bit of a layabout, he lay about a bit."

I saw the release note for this book this morning, but was unable to go to the Malls to get it. Imagine my surprise and delight when I went to the Malls after work and found the book still there! I am looking forward to reading it, although it is awfully big!

I couldn't get through this book, I am sorry to say. I made it to page 342 so I did try, but I may just not have the stamina at the moment to finish a book of this size. I also found there were too many characters floating about for me to really care about any of them in great depth.
