for an honest The Life of Samuel Johnson review Thank you NetGalley Read on the WondrousBooks blog Actualating 35 This is one of those books which leave me with very mixed feelings To be honest I considered giving it 3 stars instead of 4 but I m feeling generous todayThe good sides1 It s touching and sad I m not saying that a sad book or a character s sad story is a good thing but if a book is able to influence you in any way it s a good thing I know because I ve had my fair share of books for which I Statistical Inference really didn t give a damn2 The character of Mukta is uite beautiful Ieally enjoyed A Wizard in Love reading every single line written from her perspective She is extremely humble and kind loyal and generous in her case as she has nothing else what she shares with everyone is her big heart even though it gets bruised by many I was able toeally feel her emotions and her pain and I spent the majority of the book ooting for her3 The writing is lovely Trasi just has a way with words especially when Mukta is the narrator There is great beauty in her descriptions Despite the many things I didn t approve of in this book I m in no way able to say that Amita Trasi is not a good writer What she lacks in creativity as far as the plot goes she makes up in the way she builds the philosophy of the book and the world in itThe bad sides1 It s sort of like season 2 of The Kite Runner India Nearly every character in The Color of Our Sky has an exact counterpart in The Kite Runner The idea of this book is so similar in fact that even many of the uotes are the same As a summary there are two kids one comes from a good family the other one is a servant of sorts they are friends but the icher child treats the other one like the servant that it is and doesn t Tigers in Normandy really think that they are friends something happens to one of the children the other one says nothing not long after it goes to America with its father the other one stays in the home country years later the one that lefteturns to Presidential Secrecy and the Law right its wrongs I could put some spoilers here which would set in stone my claim that the books have virtually the same storyline but if you are interested you canead it for yourselves2 Mukta s storyline as much as I liked it lacks depth It s sort of like the Memoirs of a Geisha minus 300 pages Too many years are skipped too many events We don t eally follow the developmentchange of the character the eason for that is that we simply don t have the time the book ends too fast I was interested in what happened with Arun Sahib but that story was neither fully developed nor even properly ended3 I don t have a tolerance for the Tara type of character She is the exact Hume on Religion replica of The Kite Runner s Amir Acts like an ass when she is a child then later just comes out of nowhere to make herself feel better and everyone thinks she s a hero I was extremely frustrated by the trust Mukta had in Tara and the way she always hoped and believed that Tara truly loved her and had her back No matter what happened in the book I m not sure that is so Whatever Tara might have done it would have all been too late in my opinionAlso I can t not find the way Tara had an endless supply of money very implausible She spent 5 whole years in India without working a single day and yet she had enough money to do whatever she wanted bribe people buy plane tickets and Even though we are told that her father comes from aich family how Master Plots: Race and the Founding of an American Literature, 1787-1845 rich can a village aristocrat be And we are not giveneason to believe that she City Schools: Lessons from New York received vast sums of her father s Ly in Bombay There she discovers a friend in the high spirited eight year old Tara the tomboyish daughter of the family who helps herecover from the wounds of her past Tara introduces Mukta to a different world ice cream and sweets poems and stories and a friendship the likes of which she has never experienced before As time goes by their bond grows to be as strong as that between sisters In 1993 Mukta is kidnapped from Tara’s oom Eleven years later Tara Amily inheritance anyway4 What happened with the secondary characters As soon as they served their purpose they simply disappeared What happened with Tara s grandmother with Madam with Arun Sahib with Tara s friend from America with a dozen secondary characters Are we to assume that this time Madam decided to just drop it Her description makes that highly unbelievable5 Why do all books at least partially set in India that I ve The Story Within read always end up with someone s ashes being thrown in theiver I ealize it s a tradition but when every author starts using it it becomes a stereotype Stereotypes lead to people being offended and it it becomes a stereotype Stereotypes lead to people being offended and this book as well as others it s obvious that the stereotype is self createdWould I ecommend this booka Yes if you are avid eaders It s moving and has a nice enough plotb No IF YOU DON T READ SO OFTEN THERE ARE you don t ead so often There are similar to this one and yet better so if you are only going to choose one pick The Kite Runner or A Thousand Splendid Suns This elouent novel will take your breath away It explores the destiny of two girls in India from different backgrounds who come together and form a bond that is lifelong Mukta is the child of a prostitute and she is destined to follow in her mother s footsteps At 12 years old her grandmother sells her to work as a sex slave Tara s father Elephant Slaves and Pampered Parrots: Exotic Animals in Eighteenth-Century Paris rescues children from horrible situations and tries to provide them with foster homes Her father brings Mutka to live with them in their home in Mumbi Tragedy strikes when Tara s mother dies and she blames Mukta for her death Tara and her fatherelocate in the United States A decade later Tara s guilt pushes her to eturn to India to find Mutka With only one old photo of her she is determined to find her childhood friend Although the search is long and frustrating she never gives upThis is a captivating but tragic novel that will bring you to tears It s hard to believe that this is Amita Trasi s debut novel when her writing seems the work of a seasoned author Without being sexually explicit she paints a vivid picture of the world of human trafficking It s hard to believe that this kind of thing still goes on in our modern world I bought this novel for 199 when it was on for a short time Unbelievably it suddenly became unavailable After some esearch I found it will be The Rise and Fall of the Biopsychosocial Model: Reconciling Art and Science in Psychiatry reintroduced in 2017 under another publisher This is a curious situation and one can only guess why it happened I have my thoughts but it is sheer speculation We are like the datura flowers that unfurl at night intoxicating blossoming in the dark wilting away at dawn 35 This book s prose is stunning Iteally is As a debut I was impressed by the particular beauty of the writing Yet some things in the novel itself were too predictable and this was why I couldn t give it five full stars What irked me is that some things are way too similar to The Kite Runner written by Khaled Hosseini It didn t last too long but when I The Arena: An Offering to Contemporary Monasticism read those parts I was kinda mehHere there are some examples Child of lower caste child of higher caste live together of course in Afghanistan there aren t castes but kind of society levels if youemember Hassan is a Hazara lower level and Amir a Pashtun higher level Mukta behaved like a servant in Tara s house as Hassan was in Amir s house She prepared breakfast cleaned her Jewish Thought, Utopia, and Revolution room and carried her backpack Hassan did the same things Mukta low caste child learns how toead by Tara the high caste child Amir teaches Hassan how to A Kangaroo's Life read Low caste child would do anything for her friend For you a thousand times over said Hassan to Amir view spoilerTHEY RE HALF SISTERS It s not said until than midway but if youead The Kite Runner and you Georg Buchner: Contemporary Perspectives re a little bit smart you get it since the beginning And yes they shared the same father Please don t hide spoiler. Ho blames herself for what happened embarks on an emotional journey to search for the kidnapped Mukta only to uncover long buried secrets in her own familyMoving from aemote village in India to the bustling metropolis of Bombay to Los Angeles and back again amidst the brutal world of human trafficking this is a heartbreaking and beautiful portrait of an unlikely friendship a story of love betrayal and edemption which ultimately withstands the true test of ti. ,
