I felt like this book was a great window into home life in India, as well as an honest look at the inner workings of husband and wife. There were moments when I didn't like the main character, but it didn't make me like the book less. Rather, it was a product of the honesty and of her own upbringing. I liked to understand *why* she did what she did, even if it didn't make me like the result. It also provided an interesting contrast between the main character's prestige and authority as doctor and her powerlessness over certain aspects of her personal life.

Great read, gripping. I love the Freudian aspect of the original trauma endured by the main character under the controlling hand of her mother.

Found it by chance at a used bookstore and wasn't able to put it down. Not sure why more people haven't heard of her in the US. Just ordered another one of her books from amazon.
