2862 : Reading List 2020 : #12 : Megha Majumdar's The Burning

I so totally loved this book. Easily a 10 on 10. 
It's a poignant reminder on India's political climate. The book reminded me of Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance - a book that comments on the political day and age, without commenting on it.

I loved the way the book made me feel for the characters for the bylanes of Bengal. Delightful prose, inventive language and totally immersive plotline.

Definite read. On a scale of 10, 10.

At 304 pages, my total for this year comes to 3494 pages.
