Again, not one of my favorites. I liked the writing better in this one that the last Lahiri I read... Or maybe it just didn't bother me so obviously. There are two main stories, each with their own themes and separate characters. Love, Jealousy, and again, cultural schisms are topics that Lahiri *really* likes and she drills them in again in this novel.
But again, I finished the book nearly in tears. Do all love stories end in heart break? Lahiri seems to think so.
I feel like I'm writing about the last two books I read all over again, so I'll stop. No reason to make you read the same thing over and over and over... as I just did.. ;)
