This review is from: A Fine Balance (Perfect Paperback)
I loved this book. The charactors were so real that I couldn't break away from them andI was sad when the book finished. I lived in India for three years, to me, this book captures the real India. This story tells the crookedness, sorrow, and sweetness of India. When I lived there, you would see all these people on the street that are in his book and wonder how they live, what was there story? By reading this book, you feel the horrors of corruption,the struggle of everyone trying to get their share, the nightmare when things go wrong, and somehow, the hope that maybe things will get better. If you want to go to India without travelling, read this book. Even if you don't want to go to India, read this book about the strenght of the human spirit.
