Arranged Marriage - Chitra Banerjee Reviews

Stories Are not Good
Jan 24, 2017 09:59 PMRead
The composition is not terrible; great even. The stories pull the book down to two stars. I discovered most, if not all, of the stories truly discouraging, and difficult to associate with. It was more similar to a perception. The one that I potentially appreciated the most was the one with the c...Read More

I can't precisely pinpoint what's lost here, except for by trying a connection between's this social occasion and JhumpaLahiri's "Go between of Maladies." The theme is vague, yet then these two writers have different techniques. Divakaruni's composed work is more strict, as if she is relating st...Read More

An very average book by Chitra

Exceptionally coherent choice of stories, however in general I don't feel that they touched me lastingly.I can't exactly pinpoint what's missing here, with the exception of by endeavoring a correlation between this gathering and Jhumpa Lahiri's "Mediator of Maladies." The topic is indistingu...Read More

Books have been a source of knowledge for many centuries. There is atleast one book written on every single topic under the sun. Books are not only written to educate, they are written for leisure and even for the metamorphosis of the soul.There are a hundred categories to choose from when it comes to books.

Book Review: Sister of My Heart
Feb 23, 2007 05:09 PMRead
“Is this author any good?” I asked my librarian, holding up ‘Arranged Marriage’, a book of short stories by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. The Librarian screwed up her nose while her head vigorously nodded a “No”.Past recommendations by the very same librarian had left me with a feeling that I ...Read More

Another derivative piece of literature from another unoriginal South Asian(female) author. Frankly, I wasn't really surprised by the unoriginality of the writing and the stories. You can smell the plot from miles away. Mostly they are about the oh-so oppressed females, hailing from traditional I...Read More
