4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By M. T. Thangaraj on March 27, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is one of the best novels I have read in recent years. It is so because of the way it mirrors the reality of all the problems linked to race, gender, land, and ecology, and challenges each of them and nudges us to think in a totally different and novel way. The story line is so arresting that you will not put down the novel till you finish it. It has suspense built into the story in such a way that you feel as if you were reading mystery novel.
The three main characters in the story belong to three different races and contexts and they set before the reader the complexities of human diversity and the intricacies of human relationship. I would strongly recommend it to all those who are concerned about issues of racial justice, gender equality, and ecological responsibility to read this novel.
Even if you do not care about any of these issues, you should read it just for the fun and joy of reading a first class narrative written in such exquisite poetic prose!

I bought this because of the summary, and I still believe that the mixing of these stories could have been an incredibly moving book.
That said, the writing was very weak and I couldn't read on past a couple chapters. Pages at a time are only dialogue between characters, making this more script than novel.
