    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 te...

    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 :-...

    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.

    The title story also, has its twists, like many of Jhumpa's other...

    Worth the money

    Good delivery. Now about the book,firstly the storytelling style of Jhumpa Lahiri is excellent-fresh and try.Stories are not bad also.But somehow the description are same.I think the price is also a bit expensive for a paperback book of 198 page.

    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...
