This book is so complex with aspects of love, oppression, family, and jealousy intertwined. The authors writing style is truly what is most impressive in drawing you in and leaving you wanting for more. The best part of the book was Arundhati's ability to bring this story full circle as she played on words and the readers interest in the process. Loved this book. Read it with my book club of professional ladies and they all loved it as well. There were parts that you just couldn't get a full handle on, like the political climate, and we all needed a genogram to keep up with the characters, but the underlying story is what is most definitly clear and best advice is just commit to finishing.
