Got this years ago from the Bargain Table to Chapters. Never read so thought I would pass onto someone else. Let me know if you liked it. Enjoy.

I picked this book up at the Oakville meetup today.
I like Indian literature and the title jumped out at me so I thought I'd give this one a try.

My mom (chargoyle) is visiting for the weekend and since I have so many TBR I decided to let her borrow any that she thought were interesting. This is one of the books that she picked.

I chose this book from a pile that my daughter (morsecode) was willing to lend me.
It looked like my type of book, because reading about a culture different from mine intrigues me. But it turned out that this was not a book for me. After reading the first few pages I found that the author's style of abruptly moving from one viewpoint or character to another left me cold.

Book is back with me and back to Mt. TBR.

I'm ruthlessly weeding my overstuffed bookshelves and am setting this book aside to wild-release in the near future.

Left in Little Free Library

I found this book in the LFL in the charming meditation garden at the church while on a little release-run in northeastern Rhode Island, and was glad to see it's still traveling. Looks fascinating!

Later: I liked the opening - "That was a month of salt" - and the poetic style, but while the plot was promising I found myself losing interest as it went on; couldn't quite get attached to the characters enough, I think. Lovely prose, though!

I left this book in this Little Free Library on the Harvard University grounds; hope someone enjoys it!
