The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri

Possibly the most relentlessly depressing novel I have read, which is very disappointing from such a good writer.  The characters are all miserable, as is the location in Rhode Island. I kept reading it thinking something positive would happen but it doesn’t. I was attracted to this book because it deals with the Naxalite rebels, but this only accounts for a small part of the book unfortunately. 20/100
