I've learned so much about India from Rohinton Mistry - especially "A Fine Balance". His books transport me to another way of life. I just love the atmosphere of his novels and this one has so much to enjoy or think about - the patience of Gustad Noble and his wife. Also his impatience with his son, yet his kindness too. Couldn't put it down.
Brilliant for reading in bed without disturbing other half ! Love it - must download more books. Much lighter to carry round than a particularly long paperback. I was prepared not to like it, being originally biased against it, but with all its features I'm dead pleased with it.
