    One thought on “The Last Burden”

    1. A beautiful journey through the trials and tribulations of a family, full of strive, frustration and small joys. Very evocative, excellent use of language and realistic, this book is a gem.

    2. I have read many stories about Indian families from Indian authors. This story lacked heart. Maybe because it wasn't as tragic as stories from Rohinton Mistry or Jhumpa Lahiri, maybe because of the way it was written, the vocabulary got in the way of the story. Not bad but not a favorite.

    3. Dyspeptic, bloated vocabulary encroaches throughout and poisons and vitiates the dialogue. Characters are petty and cramped onto a claustrophobic stage. Through some fortuitous conjuration, empathy oozes through, about two-hundred pages in.An big kiss-off to the 'indian family.'

    4. A verbose rendition of a typical Indian middle class description of a generation by the generation's greatest author
