The Way Things Were by Aatish Taseer

The Way Things Were: A Novel - Aatish Taseer

I finally decided to quit on this, despite having already slogged through 361 pages.  It was just too heavy on origin of languages, Indian history I'm not at all familiar with, and a non-stop soap opera with characters I just had no interest in.  I just don't think it was written for me, or for a very wide audience at that.
