Pealing the onion

by DocMike on Jan 14, 2008

Starts slowly, develops steadily, 'Such a Long Journey' becomes more gripping as it moves along. Mr. Mistry's prose is engaging - the book is never boring and is often captivating. Set in India in the early 1970's, the characters are revealed as various personae are pealed back like an onion's layers. A good book to read in a book group - a brief review of the partitioning of India and of India's major religions would enhance the reading.
