2430 : Reading list 2018 : #24 : Way to go....Upamanyu Chatterjee

This is my fourth book by the author. Though a little inane in his earlier works, "The Last Burden" and even this one are refined.

They still make you laugh with the absurdist ideas presented there. The prose is very refined, very sophisticated, almost poetic. Whats its strength is also its weakness. The long sentences with their imprisoned metaphors, make it a difficult or a slow read sometimes.

There is no plot, save a normal human tale. What you will possibly like is that it is a regular everyday story.

Go for it, for its sophistication and its ability to demonstrate that good writing comes in all shapes and sizes.

At 359 pages takes my 2018 total to 7652 pages.
