Is there anything you would change about this book?
A different reader, one who can pronounce Indian words. More importantly, one who can read with intelligence and has read the book before he starts reading. Each sentence he "recites" ends with an iamb or a trochee. Many voices speak in this fascinating book, but the reader differentiates none, young or old, male or female.... A mess.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
The book is fascinating. Those who know Delhi, particularly those who were fortunate enough to visit it before the turn of the millennium, and then later, will find it compelling -- accurate and distressing.
How could the performance have been better?
Do you think Capital needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Sure, one of these years. It takes the history of the great Capital City up to today.
Any additional comments?
I am returning this book, and buying a hard copy where I can at least tell who is speaking, and understand the meaning of the narrative.

Why is a book about the capital of India being read by someone incapable of pronouncing a single Indian name or word correctly?
