5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than An Atlas of Impossible Longing, 16 May 2012
By 
This review is from: The Folded Earth (Paperback)
Having read, and enjoyed, Anuradha Roy's first book, I was looking forward to reading this one, and I was not disappointed. I thought The Folded Earth was even better than An Atlas of Impossible Longing, and that Anuradha Roy is growing in confidence as a writer. Hopefully, we can look forward to much more from her.

The Folded Earth covers similar ground to the previous book, but in a totally different location. Place is a very important concept in A. Roy's books and her descriptions are marvellous. This book contains a lot more humour than the previous one. Even though the location is so distant and so different than the one I find myself in, the characters are recognisable types. I found it easy to engage with the story, or the stories, as every character has a story. There were parts of the story that I found less credible than the rest (the Maya-Veer romance, for example), but I just accepted what Anuradha Roy told us and enjoyed her depiction of place, events and characters. I was sorry when the book ended as I would like to know more about what happened to these people. I look forward to Anuradha Roy's next book.
