A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry

A Fine BalanceA Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an amazing story. It certainly may not be for everyone, but it is packed with vibrancy and the sights and smells of India. I have also read Family Matters by this same author and loved it. If you like to learn how people of other countries live, here are the books for you.

It revolves around a main family of a lower caste of tanners and leather workers. They try to rise out of their "caste" and two young sons are sent to the city to apprentice as tailors.

Lots of twists and turns, too many to include in a little review.
