a book.... in review

'interpreter of maladies' by jhumpa lahiri

i really enjoyed this book because of the colorful nature of both the writing itself and the descriptions of each person and location depicted. a group of short stories introduce you to a number of characters, ordinary people you may meet throughout the seasons of your life, and when you are done you almost feel as if you have met them yourself. the people are real, they feel what you feel, and think what you think, they are living their life, just as you are living yours. the stories are worth getting into bed with, or spending a lazy afternoon with... 

i found myself not able to put it down, and wishing for endless amounts of hours to dedicate solely to losing myself in the pages of a good book. one after another, to be precise! i daydreamed of rainy days, a handmade lap quilt, a comfy sofa, my current book, and a cup of seasonally-flavored coffee. what a perfect way to waste away the hours of the day! if you are in the mood for a colorful book of interesting stories, check it out. it might be just what you are looking for. 

happy page-turning! i'm off to find another good book to read!


  1. I've been meaning to read this! It's been sitting on our shelf for quite some time. Glad you liked it - that'll motivate me. :) I'm about to finish "Eat, Pray, Love."

  2. love love love eat, pray, love.... such a good book! can't wait to get back to the states and get the follow-up to it. and then the movie is coming out too! i just hope it really captures the essence of the story and doesn't ruin it... we'll see... but yeah, you'll love interpreter of maladies. it's a really fun read!

  3. I'll be curious to see if the movie is different enough from "Under the Tuscan Sun." Have you seen that? I kept thinking of it as I read the book.
