This was OK but not wonderful. Taking a mix of young people living in Calcutta, the author tries to show different aspects of the city. However some of them were too similar, and I thought the plotting was a bit disappointing, with some characters promised and then left. The political shuffling interfered too much for me, too – I’m sure it was supposed to interfere, to make a point, but I didn’t personally find much interest in that aspect.
