Maximum City

A terribly boring book about India, I’m afraid. Some parts are engaging, like the story of how this ex-pat comes home to India after 20 years, brings his family, gets settled in and learns how to deal with the country that says “No” instead of America. Once he veered off this storyline into the gangsters and bar girls and Indian history it got painfully boring to me. In desperate need of an editor, and generous portions of snipping. Do long chapters make one crazy? Yes, I say yes, I say yes.
