Lahiri reveals through great detail, the importance of a name and its defining purpose in ones life. Although written with painstaking detail, this novel lacks life, body and color. There are many unexplained issues that arise in the story that may have made a difference in the bland rhythm of this novel. I didn't love it or hate it but I was mildly disappointed. Nevertheless, I plan to read more of Lahiri's work in the near future.
♥♥ - Mildly disappointing!!
