More greatness from Rohinton Mistry
I thought A Fine Balance by the same author was a near perfect book, which is why I purchased Family Matters. It has been quite some time since I finished this book, yet it impacted me so strongly that I wanted to convey my enthusiasm to other potential reader/listeners. Very different from A Fine Balance, yet the author exhibits the same deep sensitivity to the human condition. I believe that the theme is universal; dealing with an elderly parent and the stepchild "problem." Most people will be able to identify with the dilemnas of family, children, siblings, parents. A VERY human story indeed. HIGHLY recommended.

A special listening experiece.
The characters are richly and vividly described. Universal themes of old age, dying, regret and family conflict are handled in a moving and convinicing way. Set in the simmering cauldron that is India--the story of this middle-class familiy's up's and down's nevertheless feels very close to home. The reader is exceptional and brings each character to life. Ths is a book that stays with you for a long time. Hope Audible brings us more books of this caliber.
