A Book to ponder

Each story is a gem. The best is some of the stories does not have a hard conclusion and that makes you ponder what could have happened. It leaves the reader after each story in deep thoughts.

There is a lot in this world which we see daily but do not pay much attention to. Jhumpa Lahiri br…

Flawless Prose

Jhumpa Lahiri’s ‘Interpreter of Maladies, stories of Bengal, Boston and beyond’ caught my eye in a book store as the cover page boasted about it being the Pulitzer Winner in 2000. This book is a collection of 9 different stories of Indian people living abroad. Each story portrays a different picture of how these Indians who have been born and brought up in India with orthodox traditions and values, struggle to survive on a land several thousand miles away from their homeland. These stories tell us the maladies of the traditionally brought up Indians survive in America, which is completely a ne

This Book SUCKS pretty bad

All the stories of this books are extremely boring.At some point it'll make you want to kill yourself.All she does throughout the book is lavish description of the food.Stories are silly, I wonder how it managed to win so many awards.Don't get carried away by the name JHUMPA LAHIRI.

If you are a beginner reader, I absolutely forbid you to pick up this book.

If you still want to read an Indian author try Khushwant Singh instead, really good for beginners.

other books that you can try are :-

Lord of the Flies
HictchHiker's guide to galaxy
Animal Farm
1984
The sea and the old man
To kill a Mo

Disappointing, sorry!

Interpreter of Maladies, though a winner of many awards, was a complete waste of time for me. The stories are too lengthy. The plots don’t make any sense and are essay-like with too much description. I found the author ‘beating around the bush’ at many points. Out of nine, I liked only two stories - The Treatment of Bibi Haldar and The Third and Final Continent. I found them sensible and absorbing. I utterly hated reading the story, Interpreter of Maladies, from which the book itself gets its name. It’s a silly and strange storyline.

So sorry!

Any immigrant's dream

Any immigrant, who loves to read, should pick up this book. A lovely set of stories, on lvies of people who may reside overseas, or visit their homeland.

Especially heart warming is the last story in the set, about a newly married couple and their initial days in a new city in USA. The story plots the initial incidents of the hero, with his old landlord, and how he remembers her later, once he finds himself settled in Boston.

The title story also, has its twists, like many of Jhumpa's other stories in this collection, many of them are master pieces. She plays well with her characters, and se

There is a lot in this world which we see daily but do not pay much attention to. Jhumpa Lahiri brings it out. A book to keep for ever.
