    review ¸ The Ever After of Ashwin Rao ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Ever After of Ashwin RaoOn June 23 1985 Air India Flight 182 en route to London England from Toronto Canada exploded off the coast of Ireland All 329 passengers and crewmembers were killed Of those dead 268 were Canadians Yet this tragedy received little outrage in Canada – these dead may have been Canadians by birth or choice but the colour of their skin marked them as ‘other’ To too many Canadians this was an Indian disaster not a Canadian one

    review ¸ The Ever After of Ashwin Rao ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Ever After of Ashwin RaoWhile occasionally preachily written there are definitely expository passages I would have cut this is an important and compelling novel about a tragedy we as Canadians have ignored the bombing of Air India flight 182 in 1985 I'm not sure I agree with the author that systemic and endemic racism are the reasons no one has written a novel about this act of terrorism before now There's never been a novel written about the Swiss Air crash in Peggy's Cove admittedly not an act of terrorism Nor has there been a novel written to my knowledge about the boatloads of Tamil refugees who arrived in Chester Nova Scotia in 1987The theme of psychological redemption through narrative reframing is a fascinating one and I plan to investigate it further Meanwhile though I'd highly recommend reading t

    review ¸ The Ever After of Ashwin Rao ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Ever After of Ashwin RaoI read and greatly enjoyed The Toss of a Lemon years ago Now Padma Viswanathan is back this time with a Giller Prize nomination again with a book connected to India but now one firmly grounded in Canada’s history and conflicted mixture of cultural obligations as well The Ever After of Ashwin Rao is every bit as complex and emotionally sensitive as one might expect from a literary award nominee While it didn’t uite engender the same lasting sense of enjoyment that I seem to recall The Toss of a Lemon creating it still manages to be a marvellous work of fictionDespite its title I’d argue that The Ever After of Ashwin Rao is not actually about Ashwin Rao He is the nominal protagonist and the first person narrator for most of the book And true Viswanathan spends a lot of time developing him as a character the events of the book affect him and we seem him coming to terms with his own losses But over time the story of Seth’s family

    review ¸ The Ever After of Ashwin Rao ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Ever After of Ashwin RaoThe Ever After of Ashwin Rao has a promising premise On June 23 1985 Sikh terrorists planted a bomb on Air India Flight 182 and while en route from Montreal to Delhi via London the plane exploded over Irish airspace killing all aboard including 268 Canadian citizens As a percentage of our population this was Canada's 911 moment but it failed to provoke national mourning and a

    review ¸ The Ever After of Ashwin Rao ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Ever After of Ashwin RaoI'm not sure how to rate this book or even what to say about it This was a Giller prize finalist last year and it was the last of the six shortlisted books that I read I found the book was extremely well written and Ms Viswanathan is an author of some skill But I found the book pretty hard slugging at times There is a lot about East Indian religion that I found slowed down the book's pace considerably The book is ostensibly about the surviving family members of the 1985 Air India plane crash It certainly shows that home grown terrorists and radicalized local terrorists are not a 21st century issue They have been with us for some time The book is certainly sad and heartrending and often difficult to read since I'm afraid our Canadian government and CSIS both past and present don't come out looking very proactive In fact it doesn't appear that either took the bombing seriously when it occurred Even though 329 people died in this bombing no one has ever been cha

    review ¸ The Ever After of Ashwin Rao ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Ever After of Ashwin RaoThis was a very hard book for me to read I loved it but it took me forever I've been reading a lot slower lately which is frustrating for me I read this book slowly because of the subject matter I was really affected by the stories of Air India after spending 3 years researching the life of a Sikh man I had to keep taking breaks from this book The story is very lyrical and traces a researcher who was affecte

    review ¸ The Ever After of Ashwin Rao ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Ever After of Ashwin RaoI really enjoyed this book It deals with the Air India bombing of 1985 and I felt that the author used this as a way to explore current terrorist actions in a very tactful manner I loved the blending of Canadian and Indian cultures I loved the way she lets the death of loved ones truly affect the lives of her characters 20 years later Very well written

    review ¸ The Ever After of Ashwin Rao ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Ever After of Ashwin RaoOkay so the twist at the end is good and some parts mostly Ashwin's parts are really interesting and I like the voices but this book took too long to get anywhere interesting for me Not a Giller contender when placed next to TGWWSN and AMPS tbh

    review ¸ The Ever After of Ashwin Rao ò PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB The Ever After of Ashwin RaoInteresting historical perspective of Indian political unrest I enjoyed the book but didn't feel much of an emotional attachment to the characters Sometimes the non linear way the story is told was distraction
