I've struggled through 4 hours of listening so far and find that I can't continue. I'm throwing in the towel on this book. I guess I am not the target audience as I just don't find the story funny. To me, the characters are presented from a distance--at arms length--so that it is difficult to feel connected to them. Without that important link the story seems shallow and becomes boring. I also wonder if a different narrator could have changed the tone and saved the book for me? Really it could have been set anywhere in the world--place doesn't seem to matter. It's mostly about wealth--money, money, money. Ugh.

This is a delightful book of a famuly in Delhi, India, who ju9upon sudden richea. The family moves from a lower middle class section of town to the rich upper class neighborhood of Gurgpan. Ms. Basu highlights the emotional struggle in this move, highlighting the human elements with poise and grace.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Masterful narration by Ms Nankani.
