This book was a big disappointment. I read it on the basis of the Booker Prize and that it was set in the Himalayas. I think was expect lush writing.
The story was heavy and thick instead of beautiful and lush. Reading the book was very slow going. Instead of propelling the reader through the story, I felt like I just had to put in my time and get through it. There is very little joy or forward action in the book.
Some may enjoy it, but it was not my type of novel.
