in What are the best Indian books"This book is a master piece of literary fiction and magical realism. One of the most interesting aspects of the book is that the narrator is a unreliable one. The book is wonderful, insightful of the partition of India and Pakistan, informative, entertaining, well written and even fun at some points. This is a must read for fans of literary fiction. "
