If you are about to pick this one as first of Mrs. CB Divakaruni,pls resist,go for her other novels.
It is the last story and the ending that will decide your view of the book: Being enraptured throughout by the people's stories, I thought the ending was perfect. A stroll through Goodreads made me realize that many were actually disappointed by it! Hence this warning: if you like the focus to be on the plot, if you don't like short stories, if you need concrete explanations and conclusions; you may not like the meandering prose.
The writing does become a bit too wordy at times. But the tales never lose their touch of mundane, regular, familiar. The book is simple and profound in its simplicity. The author manages to find magic in things that are ordinary, worldly. And she really makes you think: about your life, about the people in it and about that one amazing thing that you may have experienced. A beautiful book and definitely worth a read!
They were saved much before the rescue unit came.
