This review is from: Do the Right Thing (Paperback)
Quite literally. Firstly, the story starts with a couple meeting on the internet. We then find ourselves 28 years into the future, with no reference of the story being set in a futuristic time, the whole book seems set in current times! I would also love to know how Chita miraculously went from being an innocent and naive girl growing up in India, to a powerful and educated (on all things corporate as well as American Politics!) when she has spent all her free time being a traditional wife! Forgive me, but not everything can be learned on the job! Quite apart from being more obsessed with what the characters in the book are wearing than developing the character themselves (HOW wooden is Shyam?!) the author doesn't stop making cringeworthy and totally unnecessary attempts at jokes and one-liners. This book is over simplistic and whilst the idea isn't bad, it's a big subject to decript in such an uncomplicated and light-humoured way. Massive chunks seem to be missing from the story. This was the first and the last book I shall be reading by this author.
