Really enjoyed it - fantastic book. Very much around the protaganist, her internal world and her family. They are Indian living in the UK and are very well portrayed. You can understand their motives, out of good intent, even as they damage each other more and more, particularly Rumika (main character) as we are more privy to her thoughts. Interesting again that there is a strong context of cultural dislocation to the book, as in the others we have read. This one did have an emotional impact on me as well as being a work I enjoyed.
