An ok way to kill some time
I would hire a woman who can do a consistent and realistic Indian accent, a man with the same and an African American man to do the different parts. The "fake but clear" accents here - do nothing for me. The performance was not 5 stars for me at all.
Probably not. I can only think of one who might try this book.
Realistic, consistent accents would have helped - REALISTIC, CONSISTANT. Not just a smidge with nothing but the hope to help non native speakers.better understand.
Yes, I can see this being made into a made for TV movie -like Lifetime. I dont know who I would cast - perhaps a whole crew of newcomers.
Some of the sentences in this book, give me hope that I can write my own. I really love Divakaruni's other work. This one, not too much. Of all of the stories shared none were particularly fresh orginal or unpredictable. I will read divakaruni agan though.
