Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Unaccustomed Earth (Kindle Edition)
I am so pleased I found this author, originally discovered with another title as a Kindle deal of the day. Of course, I had heard of her previously, just never got round to reading anything. Interesting characters, global challenges, good observations, and the combination of background academia, New England (okay, Seattle gets a nod too), India and London keep my interest as they are all areas with which I have some connection.
And I have recommended her books to colleagues who also seem to have been bitten by the bug too.
This title is a series of novellas, different, but with a thread running through them about family (and extended family) tensions and observations. The characters are convincingly real and I actually feel as if I would get on with quite a few of them in real life and can see parallels in my own life (despite not experiencing the cultural intrigues of the characters).
An easy, yet thought provoking, book. Perfect for holiday reading, tube or train commuter reading: I read most of this one in unseasonably sunny London weather in my backyard, glare free on the Kindle.
Go out and buy......
