THE WINDFALL by Diksha Basu
This book is not funny. It is just sad. A bunch of pretentious people trying their hardest to be even more pretentious is just depressing. I would have preferred a book about Mrs. Ray and Uben, somewhat minor characters who serve as foils for the Jha’s and Chopra’s. Mrs. Ray offers a breath of lightness and air in this very arid book. The Jha’s have come into money and are determined that everyone will know how wealthy they are. They wear uncomfortable clothes, sit on a very uncomfortable sofa and befriend very unlikeable people.
The writing is okay but totally wasted on this depressing book.
