“Unaccustomed Earth” by Jhumpa Lahiri

Product Details Listened to the audio book in August 2008.  On the way to Rhode Island to attend Adam’s wedding.

This collection of short stories from Lahiri was not at the same quality as “The Namesake”.  Each short story does a great job of developing the characters involved but does not do an equally good job of actually concluding the story.  Many of the stories feel incomplete considering the depth of each character.  Part of this might be my fault since most of the short stories I have read are sci-fi so that is where my expectations are being set from.

If you want to read about Indian/American characters adjusting to various parts of living in the US then this audio book is worth listening to.
