BOOK: The Space Between Us by Thirty Umrigar

Thirty has quickly become one of my favorite authors. i was never one to read books from authors who were'nt black...not on just sort of happened that way. i was always under the false impression that african american authors were the best authors. so because of my self imposed prejudice i missed out on sooo much. But lately i have embarked on this love obsession with india. i have dreams of india, i think of india, and indian culture, life in india...its gotten to be quit redivulous. lol. so the past two books i have read , have filled my indian love cup to the brim and over flowed it just a little. but i love licking the edge. loool.

The Space Between Us tells te story of two women, one (Bhima)who is a servent to the other (Sera). and how the lives, although different on the outside arent REALLY that different on the inside, given they are both women in a male dominated country. The book started off kindof slow for me, but due to my OCD-ish twitch of not being able to put down ANY book no matter how TERRIBLE once i'v started reading it , it got better, and i was happy by the middle. However, the ending was a bit of a let down to me, but i believe thats MY personal issue of having to have EVERY movie and book end like a Disney fairytale. sorry.
