“A Fine Balance” by Rohinton Mistry

A Fine Balance (Oprah's Book Club)

Read from May 2008 – July 2008.

This is an excellent novel by Mistry – my first of his books.  The characters and description of life in India is so perfectly captured that the book leaves the reader saddened when the story is over.  This is an excellent novel that has multiple story lines interweaving a handful of main characters.

I cannot fully describe the joy and sadness in reading this book.  Each character fully appreciates the balance that exists in India between classes, races, genders, and the environment.  This is a novel that is essential for anyone who wants to read about India’s slums and the resilience of her people.
