The Marriage Bureau For Rich People by Farahad Zama

The Marriage Bureau for Rich PeopleThe Marriage Bureau for Rich People by Farahad Zama
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Marriage Bureau is a warmhearted novel. There is some Jane Austen in the humor and social assessments. Zama lightly touches the grim realities of political corruption, the caste system and poverty that the average Indian is up against without losing the cozy community feeling of the novel. Marriage Bureau also has a built in exotic element in the setting and a mysterious quality in the customs. Zama has written a bewitching take you away from your troubles book.
