After having read atleast four books prior to reading Arranged Marriage, I was not quite impressed with the theme and emotions as there was nothing new and fresh and it was the same glorified versions of tyrannical husbands holding captive of women, women trying hard to struggle after having left India as immigrants, women confined to the kitchen trying to bail out Indian curries reminiscing their hay days when they would have delicious Indian cuisine at their hometown Calcutta.

Am I asking for more? We have progressed and gone farther upto the Mars It is actually hard to digest the fact that the person who wrote The Palace Of Illusions has not tried to cover the nice things about arranged marriages like adapting to the other side of culture, the bonding between strangers who become partners. This book could have been much better had it not been for cliches in the stories. I would like to highlight the fact that there are two-three stories with strong women characters but what happens to them later is left for the readers to imagine.

I liked the two stories particularly-one of the woman whose husband runs a supermarket and the other is that of a girl wanting to adopt a son. They were different. Also there is a story here is ditto as the book by the same author Sisters Of My Heartand this part is exactly annoying that the story also ends on the same lines. And for the same reason I may probably not pick up another book by her for the next one year atleast.

I will give it a generous two out of five stars for the writing. If you really want to read a book of this author, my hands up to The Palace Of Illusions. It is far far away from that gem Composed of short stories, where no two are alike but together give an incredible sense of harmony and leaves every reader with a deep impression. With all these short stories Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni wants especially Indian women to be strong and conscious of the values each and every one of them has and wants to evoke the possibility of change, of starting anew.

Recommendation: First Explanation of Rating: A captivating and emotional book of, at times funny, at times sad, but always profound. Recommendation: First of all, this book should be read by every Indian woman who has confronted or will confront the traditional obstacles in the life on an Indian woman. In this book they will find great encouragement not to give up and to hang in there. Some women will hopefully even be able to come out of this bad condition of life where stereotypes and boundaries still represent a huge barrier for the free development of their individuality.

Next, the book should be read by all other women of different backgrounds, communities, and ages, who have similar barriers in life. Finally, I recommend this book for all the other people who can relate to issues such issues as racism, interracial relationships, economic disparity, abortion, and divorce because although not you are not necessarily being hit by the problems an Indian woman faces her whole life, it is very important not to be completely oblivious of how hard a life of an oppressed woman can be.
