The author writes for advanced readers, therefore making this book appropriate for graduate level classes in the study of India and it's culture.

    "This is a very challenging book to read, but it is a great choice for so many reasons. It is perfect for a college student to read about colonialism and the birth of India and Pakistan. It is not an easy book to read and the user will definitely want to dedicate significant time to absorbing its contents. The reader will reap the rewards of this and be a changed person after reading this transformative work."

    "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. "
