  1. I couldn’t agree more with your thoughts – they are my thoughts exactly. I have just finished this book and am thoroughly disappointed in the directionless shambles Faber made of the last third of the story. To have devoted so much time to reading this book and to have been so poorly rewarded makes me feel more screwed than Sugar ever was. I would throw the book across the room but won’t for fear this 900 page brick will break something.

  2. I was in India when I read the book. I gave it to a beach hawker after I had finished reading it, and she used it as a door stop to the small hut she and her husband lived in. Even a year afterwards, it still enrages me that the author could have cocked his story up so badly.
