    characters The Sleeping Dictionary ↠ eBook PDF or Kindle ePUB The Sleeping DictionaryI'm a big fan of this writer and her Perveen Mistry series so when I saw this one i had to read it It's a fascinating and interesting insight into India's history and tells the story of a young lady who looses her family in a tsunami and afterwards leads a troubled life to survive amongst others as a prostitute in a 'luxury house' gets with child flees from the prostitute house while having to leave her little daughter behind with trusted friends Life gets better when she ends up working in the library of a European gentleman although the political situation in India turns grim and dangerous Interesting read definitely The only thing I found was that the story was a bit too longwinding for me around 500 pages and a bit lovey dovey in the last part not really my thing but all in view a 36 read I'm really hoping for the next Perveen Mistry first woman lawyercrime investigator in India this year can't wait

    characters The Sleeping Dictionary ↠ eBook PDF or Kindle ePUB The Sleeping DictionaryI really like Sujata Massey's Rei Shimura series so I had high hopes for this I didn't love it sadly but it was a pretty good book It takes place in a very interesting time and place and the storyline kept me reading I was not as caught up as I would have liked though I found the main character very formal and while I know that that was most likely the author's intention it meant that I felt removed from her even though the story is told in the first person I found her almost unbelievably naive at times and also uick to judge others interesting combo The romantic interest built up slowly but there were the moments that anyone who has ever read a formulaic romance novel is familiar with the oh no the truth will get out and everyone will know we're sleeping together and I can

    characters The Sleeping Dictionary ↠ eBook PDF or Kindle ePUB The Sleeping DictionaryAll on its own the story is worth the read epic and intimate rich in historical detail without being pedantic Added value comes through an organic depiction of India's people culture and languages on both a personal and grand scale I was impressed by author Sujata Massey's artful code switching using Bengali words for things that would sound dull and awkward with English approximations A glossary makes it all accessible The audio version narrated by Sneha Mathan is also superb I recommend listening to some of it even if you prefer to read Hearing Mathan's expert pron
