    " I just was not digging this book at all. I got 3 or 4 chapters in and that was all I could handle. I found the writing was very pretty but the story it self was just so dull (if that makes sense) usually by chapter 3 or 4 you'd expect to be starting to get a feel for the characters in the book but I found I hardly knew anything about the characters, and I certainly didn't care about any of them. I don't know maybe if I would have kept reading but I didn't like the authors style of writing it was just to poetic for me sort of like "Life of Pi" where everything has to have some hidden meaning. I'm not sure if that makes sense but anyway this was just not my cup of tea, it defiantly wasn't the kind of book I'd normally buy I got it from my mother in law and thought I'd give it a try. "

    " The beginning of this book was difficult, but after the first 100 pages it became much more understandable and easy. While I had mixed feelings about this book, it was the basis for one of the best books discussion my reading group has ever had. The author perhaps tried to cover too much, but the questions he raised were thought provoking. "

    " difficult at times but he sure writes well. definitely worth reading if India is of interest. "

    " A slow moving story. But will keep you tied up. "
