Lajja is certainly not a book for entertainment, not even in the melancholic sense. It's full of facts and figures about the oppression that Hindu's had to undergo in free Bangladesh, which are meant to give the reader a sense of the extent of these atrocities. But after a while, they become just too much to digest (one could even call them nauseating and irritating) and the book eventually starts resembling a wikipedia page; the main plot, which runs around a family under distress, is almost lost and the book completely loses its influence. Though in the last quarter of the book, author returns to the plot and beautifully concludes it. I recommend!
