3.0 out of 5 stars One howler, hopefully it's the only one!, 4 Aug. 2010
By 
This review is from: Cracking India (Paperback)
I bought this book in order to have the opportunity to spend more time with the wonderful characters I first encountered in Earth, one of my favourite films, which I couldn't bear to end. A couple of chapters into the book Sidhwa indicates that Ghandi's Salt March occurred shortly after the end of WWII. This is a serious error, which I can't quite believe wasn't picked up by the editor and could have possibly gone in a book written by someone who grew up on the Subcontinent. I am fairly new to this topic (but not so new I wouldn't have picked up on THAT error) so not sure how to view some of the other information here and the historical picture she presents as a whole, although the story remains readable if not as tightly wrought as Mehta's film (Mehta wrote that script). Treat this book with care.
