beautiful book about love, family, war and globalisation,
This review is from: The Inheritance of Loss (Paperback)
This was a beautiful book set in the Himalaya in north east India. The main characters included a miserable, retired judge, his long forgotten granddaughter Sai, their humble and loyal cook and his son Biju. Their home lacked electricity and was cut off every winter, but the characters had interlocking relationships with the United States, Russia and the United Kingdom. This book was about: love, life, hatred, family, war and globalisation and was beautifully written. I really enjoyed reading this book as it highlighted to me the importance of fiction in exploring the delicate and entwined relationships between families and how unfairness between men and women, cultures, economics and countries fuel conflict and how easy it spirals out of control where words and actions cannot be erased or forgotten. I highly recommend this book.
