I nearly gave up on this half way through the prologue, fearing that I might die of a surfeit of adjectives. Happily, it improved massively once the actual plot started, and ended up very readable. A depressing examination of the tensions between class and gender within and between two Indian households, though ending with its own sort of hope.
