What the frock did I just read After than a decade we finally get a chance to revisit the life musings and viewfinder of Dimple Lala now 19 dating Karsh and attending NYU for photography She and Karsh are going to visit India together for Karsh s big DJ break in Bombay and Sangita s upcoming nuptials And that s about all that we think we know and will expect from this story But somehow everything derails Literally And not even the changes and different experiences the characters go through but the amount of focus Hidier puts on poetic descriptions of pretty much anything you can think of made it so difficult to get through most of it It was sparingly done in the first book Born Confused In this one it was like she just vomits poetry and alliterations all over And the altoo faltoo ending Did Keeper of the Light her editor caller up asking for something pronto and she chalked something up between Shattered Spear (The Lost Stars, huffs Some passages got so dense that I actually couldn t even picture what was being described Once again Hidier s successful dialogue skills shine and my absolute favorite scenes were anything with Dimple s family If she wrote just scenes with those characters using uotes of course and excluded Dimple and Karsh completely seriously who were they in this book I would ve loved it I mean all of them buter and Karsh Sangita Kavita The Homing her parentser aunt and uncle even little Akasha It lacked the pleasant charm they bring to the story because they re instead relegated to secondary characters barely featured And my issue with that was that they all The Women of Easter had way interesting stories and issues read journeys than anything Dimple is consumed with My other issues were the unrealistic aspects of the story Dimple who knows no other language than English and whoas only visited India with Why Are You So Scared? her parents to stay wither family independently explores all of Bombay with no language barriers no maps no The Power of One help Granted she does travel around from time to time with locals andor someone multilingual but she takes a train byerself I mean c mon Also this was a small annoyance but it did bother me that the first novel referenced things in the 1990s as The Wolf Gift (The Wolf Gift Chronicles, happening just a year or so before the events of that novel when Dimple is 17 In Bombay Blues she s 19 and references events of the late 2000saving occurred several years ago So either someone drank some youth fountain juice or Dimple takes forever to age Again not a big deal I just wonder if she will be able to ever pay off er student loans Overal.

L after great expectations this became a chore to get through Would only recommend if serious fans want to keep reading and revisit their favorite characters Otherwise just stick with the first one I think I m reacting instead of reviewing right now and that s okay Emotionally some books it The Thing About December harder than others especially when you re invested in the first to the point where the second isview spoilerHave you ever spun yarn Or tried In case you were wondering spin one way you get yarn Spin the other you get something back that resembles wool but isn t usable any It falls apart and you can t make it part of the wool againDimple s world spun out the wrong way She didn t feel likeerself Karsh didn t feel like Os Peixes Também Sabem Cantar himself and you know I missed Gwyn I know it s real to lose track of a person like Dimple and Gwyn grew apart but some realism is too real Too painful This was at once too fantastic and too painful The Dimple I grew to love wasn t This one was just a little too drawn out for me Some beautiful moments but the prose was weighted down prettyeavily I t had aard time finishing it Ouch I fear my skin is thinning Too long immersed in bittersweetness just leaves one with the bitter like oversteeped tea No fault was found with the lyrical prose or the culture clash or dear sweet Dimple Karsh on the other and was either recast or given a script that made me want to it Stand Up and Fight him in theead with a potato Visiting Bombay with er felt like returning to an old friend only to ear that she d suffered great loss and was only just beginning to reclaim Now Is the Hour herselfer lifeIt is nearly four in the morning and I cannot confer a star rating on something while the covers are still warm There were parts of this book that I really connected to mostly the issues that arise with being bicultural I also loved the overarching themes of euality and love is love Some parts were a little too over the top and verbose for me Definitely a good read before traveling to India though The writing is dense and lyrical I think this REALLY could Londons Glory (Bryant May, have used a stronger editThough I loveer voice and do get the cultural references it gets tedious at times and it takes too long to get to the well written climactic scenes That said I was freuently captivated by Hidier s writing and felt super in the know when I could get all Jingle Bells her literary and cultural references This is a book that reuires your full attention but is uite rewarding in the end Ms Hidierad been clearly been smoking that D ome where she least expected it But a lot's gone on in the years that ave followed And what appens if what you thought you wanted wasn't what you wanted after all As she learns durin.
