I started reading this one, but just couldn't get into it. I see that it's a winner of the Booker prize and it's also on a lot of wishlists, so maybe someone else will enjoy it. I am reserving this book for sweetsangria's Water Bookbox.

Amazon Editorial Review:
Southern India 1969. Here, armed only with the invincible innocence of children, Rahel and Esthappen fashion a childhood for themselves in the shade of the wreck that is their family: their lonely, lovely mother, who loves by night the same man her children adore by day...their blind grandmother, who plays Handel on her violin...their beloved uncle, A Rhodes Scholar pickle baron, radical Marxist, bottom-pincher...their enemy, an ex-nun and incumbent grandaunt...and the ghost of an imperial entomologist's moth. But when their English cousin and her mother arrive for a Christmas visit, the twins learn that things can change in an instant, thatlives can twist into new, ugly shapes, even cease forever. The brilliantly plotted story uncoils with an agonizing sense of foreboding and inevitability. Yet nothing prepares you for what lies at the heart of it.

Thanks for the book, which arrived today. I had tried reading this one a while ago and just couldn't get into it, so it will go travelling.

Released to the bookcase in my office. Since no one took it after a number of weeks, it's going elsewhere.
