Kiran Desai: The Inheritance of Loss

this book gets 4 out of 10.
desai definetly stands ou among indian authors.
but the book was pretty heavy.
and desai seems to be very angry at a lot of things.

it seems ridiculous how some people still blame the british colony for everything which is going wrong in india ... even after 60 years of independece.
