The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri

* Picture from Amazon *

Format read: Paperback

Genre: South Asian

Rating: 6 out of 10

Plot: Udayan and Subhash grew up so similar to each other that people mistook them for twins instead of just brothers.  As the boys grow up, Udayan is drawn into an extremist group and ultimately makes a decision that destroys his family.

Opinion: This wasn’t my favorite book by Jhumpa Lahiri.  While I was drawn into the story, I felt like it dragged at points, and I was frustrated by the behaviors of several of the characters in the story.

Next book: Life in al-Barzakh from Death until Resurrection by Muhammad Mustafa al-Jibaly
