The Lowland - Jhumpa Lahiri
Readers, I have mixed feelings about this book. To be honest, it was relentlessly joyless and sometimes even brutal. I also feel like the same story could easily have been told in half the page count and the book would have lost nothing but some repetitive language. The setting(s) were interesting; I enjoyed learning more about India's past and politics, and I like reading about immigration experiences, as I often wonder what it would be like to move to a foreign country and adapt and etc. But all in all, maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this book.
