One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
One Amazing Thing

Emmay, January 7, 2011

Beautifully written and thought-provoking novel. Of course, we each bring our own experiences to a book, and it may not resonate the same with each reader. But I found the book quite credible, vivid and touching.

The scenario which brings these people together is uncommon and certainly unusual, but not inconceivable. Having been through situations where people are thrust together(though not as dire, thank goodness), I felt their reactions were plausible.

I loved the book and it still enters my thoughts from time to time, something few novels provoke in me.
