- Author Vikram Seth
I’ll be honest and admit, I didn’t get to the end of this. It wasn’t bad, it just didn’t grab my attention the way I hope a book does. I wouldn’t usually review a book I don’t finish but this one was part of my Big Read to do list so I tried to keep pushing on as long as possible. I’ve been picking this up and putting it down for months, which is never a good sign.
I thought the dynamics between the families were interesting, and the love quadrangle with Lata was the one thing that kept me trying to read on. But the ins and outs of the political world and the shoe factory, well, it just didn’t do it for me.
