books

i have just finished reading Isabel Allende’s ‘ The Japanese Lover’  – i have to admit, it was the first novel of hers that i have read and although i found the ending somewhat unbelievable and rushed to reach a conclusion – i thoroughly enjoyed it – its romantic, informative and unpredictable.  i wish that i could have read it in spanish, because i am sure that some of the translation lost some of her subtly and meaning.  its a love story, quite like, Gabriel Garcia Marques’  love in the time of cholera and is an easy read, especially if you have a long train or plane journey ahead of you.

i loved this corner book stall in mumbai – english books piled high!
