This is one of those books that is engaging and really draws you in to a world… but actually once you’re out the other side of it, it’s hard to say what actually happened. I listened to the audiobook which was wonderfully read by Meera Syal, and it was engrossing to hear about the difficulties for immigrants of trying to fit in alongside all the different societal pressures from their own culture and the one they’re trying to adapt to. It was well written, and well read, but I don’t know if I ultimately liked it.
