The Lowland

The Lowland - Jhumpa Lahiri Jhumpa Lahiri went to my top ten of favorite authors with her previous books so I was very hopeful that I would enjoy "The Lowlands". Not only was I not disappointed in that hope but I think this is her best yet. What a beautiful, heart wrenching novel about two brothers and the different paths each one took. I became so engrossed in this book and involved in the characters that I felt I was living their lives right along with them. There were times the book literally took my breath away.

Not only was it a wonderful story but I also learned so much about the politics of India. In many books, the political aspects go right over my head but Lahiri writes in such a way that it's very clear to follow and understand.

If you haven't tried any of Jhumpa Lahiri's books yet, don't miss out on this one. It's a beauty.
