Acquired via BookCrossing 21 Jan 2006 – Birthday RABCK from Jen/WyldeTwo

Finally got to reading this one – not too badly behind actually at the moment!

I enjoyed this – a classic “Liz” book which runs through Indian and Pakistani history pre- and post-partition, complicated families, millions of cousins and interconnected fates across the continents. A bit heavy on the history in parts, but a fresh voice and evocative of London as well as Karachi, which is nice.

I am reserving this for someone else’s Birthday Treat – only seems fair to pass it on in the same way!!
