Bombay Blues product reviews

Dimple Lala thought that growing up would give her all the answers, but instead she has more questions than ever.

Her boyfriend is distant, her classmates are predictable and a blue mood has settled around the edges of everything she does. It's time for a change and that is just what Dimple is going to get - a change of scenery, of cultures, of mind. She thinks she's heading to Bombay for a family wedding - but really she is plunging into the unexpected, the unmapped and the uncontrollable.

The land of her parents and ancestors has a lot to reveal to her - for every choice we make can crescendo into a journey, every ending can turn into a beginning, and each person we meet can show us something new about ourselves.

Bombay Blues drew me in from the cover and because I had read "Born Confused" by the same author Tanuja Desai Hidier.

I cannot say I enjoyed Bombay Blues quite as much although once I got into the 3rd or 4th chapter I found myself getting more and more immersed into the book. I learnt a lot about some aspects of the Indian Culture, love, loss and hope. Bombay Blues covers a lot of day to day topics and includes culture and tradition in the process which was an aspect of the book I really liked.

The characters were well portrayed and easy to read by the end of the book. Dimple, the main character, is fun, free spirited and loves her family. Karsh, her partner, is very driven in his work. Although if like me you have read Born Confused, Dimple's attitude will annoy the heck out of you and maybe even frustrate you a little!! She came a long way but in Bombay Blues it feels as though she is back tracking!!

I wouldn't suggest this as a light summer read as it can be difficult to follow but it was not all bad and the further into the book you get the harder it is to put down!
