Transport yourself to another world with this book as your guide and indulge in a multilayered story set in the Sundarbans, islands off the Indian coast. Here we meet characters who are confronted with natural wonders, danger, and political intrigue. Narrator Firdous Bamji beautifully alternates between unaccented English and a lyrical Indian inflection. He lends an air of credibility to the story and gently moves the action ahead. His pacing is flawless, and he moves effortlessly from male to female characters. Bamji also has a wonderful gift of description, which allows the reader to experience the lush beauty and emotion at the core of the book.
