I thought that the book was very well written and I don't agree with the Library Journal review which says that the reader can anticipate the ending. There is a shocking realism to the depiction of poor people in India but also the enduring class divides and taboos. The plight of women is also well portrayed. I would recommend this book and look forward to more by this author. I read another book this year, "Mr. Pip", where the tutelage of natives by an Englishman leads to horrendous violence. In both books, that education by the English serves to change the lives of the main characters in profound ways.
