Love and Tumult
I love the lyricism of the opening paragraph of Kumar’s book. I dove into the work with high hopes. Unfortunately, the rest of the book settles into a narrated style in which we listen to Vik tells us about his adventure in Africa and love for Latha. Evocative scenes are few and far between and the story unfolds as if we watched a film with descriptive sub-titles, but little cinematography. It is a pity as Kumar can write, and write well, but the book needs more work before it becomes the powerful story it could be.
