The most incredulously boring book I've ever set my eyes upon
on 2 December 2009
This book bases itself around a beurocrat who has given up that life to own an inn by the narmada river, very nice, and who he meets around this place.
Gita Mehta fails miserably to capture the essence of the true beauty of the area and focusses in on thin characters who tell simmilar stories, which actually go nowhere and mean nothing. It is a book which wastes time, and makes you want to gauge out your own eyes to have something vaguely interesting to do.
There is no actual storyline at all. It is simply a man talkin to other people who have less troubles than they appear to believe, and it made me angry in some places that Mehta has shown arrogance in places, with her style of writing, and often insults the readers intelegence.
