Anyway, it seemed to me that the excerpt I'd read online was, in fact, the high point of the whole book.
Sure, the author makes the accounts of his travel very easy to relate to and his writing skills are certainly stellar, as he constantly paints the most vivid of pictures with words, but the problem is that I felt like perhaps 50% of the book was redundant. I read it in perhaps two days, and I found myself treading through familiar descriptions of filth, unsanitary behavior and jingoism over and over and over again. In my opinion, summary should have been used a lot less sparingly here.
Still, the book's not a huge waste of money, and if you're as interested in the post-partition history of the region once known as "India" then I do suggest giving this book a read.
