This book surprised me. It definitely went down paths I did not anticipate. Yes, this is a story about an Indian woman (Sarita) trying to find her husband (Karun) in a pre apocalyptic world. But more than that this is a love story between Sarita and Karun, and Jazz (a man) and Karun. We learn in great detail how both these relationships develop. So this may not be a book for everyone. But for me, I became invested in all the characters right away and had to find out how it ended. I thought the author did a great job at writing the emotion, the passion, and turmoil for both these relationships. The book also explores Indian culture, traditions and the conflict between Hindu and Muslim. We are also introduced to a colorful cast of characters. The narrators did an excellent job as well, and the editing was flawless, no loud breaths to distract the listener.

India vs Pakistan, Hindu vs Moslem, 3 characters looking for love when life itself is such a challenge. Manil Suri takes on a road trip that gives us war, love, religion, lots of criminals of every stripe and evolving true love that expresses itself as the physical nature of love takes second place in the lives of three consenting adults. I felt that Priyas' narration is not top quality. Vikas Adam is excellent.
