Book Review of The Inheritance of Loss

The Inheritance of Loss
reviewed on
Helpful Score: 1

it is a pleasure to read a book that is well-written, with thought-out, more 'complex' sentences than many of the good books out there today. there are also many interesting themes - the perspective of well-to-do Indians within their country; an Indian immigrant in an America that doesn't live up to his hopes; a teenage girl trying to understand class differences within romance. there is no sugar-coating in this story. however, despite *wanting* to really love this book, i found i finished it only having an intellectual interest in it. i think that perhaps the characters, although interesting, were not developed well enough to feel connected to them. definitely worth reading for the themes of the story, but not, as others mentioned, for a fun, feel-good read.
