Beckie reads The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri

Why did you read this book? It’s on the shortlist for The Morning News’ Tournament of Books.

Has Jeremy read it? No.

42-word review: The aftermath of one brother’s pro-revolutionary actions in 1960s India. I kept expecting new character perspectives to add emotional depth to the events previously just sketched out, but they all just continued in their unchanging insular states (even through major life events).

Overall rating: 3 ponds (out of 5) (I had trouble even thinking of something to use as a rating because I found this so bland)
