Interpreter of Maladies

Put this book on your reading list. Well, let me place some disclaimers on that.  Put this on your reading list if... you like short stories, you can enjoy a story without a clear lesson or conclusion, you enjoy stories that aren't necessarily lighthearted, you like seeing things for other people's perspective, you like learning about other cultures.  Phew!

So, what I'm trying to say is that this book isn't for everyone.  However, if those qualifiers didn't scare you away, then you will love this book.  I enjoyed it because it was written in such a way that I could easily relate to the Indian and Indian American characters.  Their lives were filled with things unfamiliar to me, but I could relate because we have being human in common.  I love stories, books, art, movies, etc. that give me that experience.
