I really wanted to like this book. It had such an interesting premise, I liked learning about India, and the first part of the book was good. Unfortunately, just as the book should have gotten even better, it just stagnated. The book is divided into parts. Part 2 was boring. Nothing happened for many pages. I still continued anyway, hoping the third section would be better. It was more interesting, in that stuff happened, but it was really unbelievable and just weird things that happen. I stopped caring what happened to anyone in the book or how it would all end. Though the book does make me want to read more contemporary literature about changes that have happened in India and within Indian society.
