speechless

I heard her at Jaipur Lit Fest and decided to read this book as she nerrated few paragraphs. She is capable of giving one sleepless nights as I experienced while going through the book - the human tragedy and the black humour yet an eye for sensitive details and mind with neutrality. She did share a bondage with Leela and its fascinating that how people behave - while Leela was all for extracting money from her "Kostomers" yet she refused to accept it from Sonia when she really needed it .... a fasinating, sad, painful, sharp story that leaves you in a state of your own helplessness against un

Gritty, matter-of-fact, 'documentary'-like

Ms Faleiro's book is a good read, though sometimes a bit hard - it sometimes leaves a sour taste in your mouth, the way the women are treated by the people in their lives, including their own parents.
But it's a quick read, and Faleiro does not pass judgement on anyone, so it's up to you to make up your mind about the whole situation.

I've lived in Bombay for the better part of my life, and this book is utterly believable.

.Its a touching story,

It forces you contemplate how the human beings face a challenge to live and behave like a human being.In the prevailing situations of destitute and misery, how a human being, specially a female, has to compromise with her dreams and dignity. weaved around the destitute and misery of a cross section of people deprived ofcertain things they deserve to have as a human being

a true depiction of the underbelly of mumbai

Its a very well written book where the author has managed to keep herself in the background at all times and let the characters do the talking. For a person living in Mumbai it was fairly easy for me to imagine the locations and other details given all through. The book forces you to get out of your insulated life and look at the kind of lives many Indians live. The honesty of the book is so refreshing. Highly recommend it to everyone. Kudos to Sonia Faleiro... it takes a lot of guts to attempt a book like this.

Decent Read

The book is written well but to be very honest, I expected a lot more out of it. It did not enthrall me the way i expected it to. I expected more considering the reviews it got.
The book is well researched and the author has captured the essence of the 'life' of a bar dancer.
