Bir çelik kasabanın yükseliş ve düşüşünün ilginç açıklaması.
Bu kitabı gerçekten çok beğendim. Yazar, Mumbai'de yaşayan ve düğün için toplanan bir grup Parsis hakkında yazıyor. Eski kuşağın her düğün konağına adanmış, hayatlarının sevgileri ve kendi yaşamlarının şimdi nasıl oldukları üzerine düşüncelerini yansıtan bir bölüm var.
AHHHHH !!!! Sondan nefret ediyorum! Ben kurtadam şey yüzünden çok korkunç bir ilişkileri var. Ahhhh !! Keşke tekrar geri dönsün. ) ':
“These three stories are finally the same story, but each one represents a different stage in my awareness of what it is about.” - Absolutely brilliant. A contemporary classic. Specially The Locked Room. These stories feels like nothing and everything at the same time. There is a sense of ambiguity and anxiousness that somehow ends up feeling inexplicably beautiful. Someday I'll be re-reading this one.
I have to say that this is a time when I really appreciate my book club. I ended up enjoying this book, but it was very slow going for a long time. If I hadn’t been reading it for my book club, I believe I would have put it down toward the beginning and never gone back to it, but I am so glad that I felt obligated to read it and therefore finished it. My favorite part was the fictional description of how Charles Dickens got the information that led to his writing the book Oliver Twist. I was smiling through that whole short section of this book. Still smiling thinking about it. The writing is poetic & beautiful. Obviously well researched historical fiction. There is a mystery but what’s revealed is not what ended up being most important to me. What fascinated me most were the development of the many interesting characters, and especially the impeccable descriptions of what it must have been like in famine stricken Ireland in the mid 1800s.
