    Grandma s folk tales, forgotten gods, mythic asides, the superstitions of a village, the hint of political change sweeping a nation, repressed desires, unabashed boldness, magic, mayhem, secrets and what have you All these elements successfully play together to creating a sweeping saga tinged with mysticism, despair and an eerie shiver down your spine.I come away intrigued by a well narrated tale but also emotionally disconcerted.

    Fixed lenses with a limited world view is what you get for being a city dweller all your life The Wall smashes that lens It gives you a kaleidoscope instead It pushes you into the deep end of life within a village in Karnataka It puts you in a time and space with problems, suppositions and solutions that few of us would have thought of before What I love about this book besides it being a real page turner is the way in which it seamlessly blends reality, internal politics, mythology, sex Fixed lenses with a limited world view is what you get for being a city dweller all your life The Wall smashes that lens It gives you a kaleidoscope instead It pushes you into the deep end of life within a village in Karnataka It puts you in a time and space with problems, suppositions and solutions that few of us would have thought of before What I love about this book besides it being a real page turner is the way in which it seamlessly blends reality, internal politics, mythology, sex and religion to further it s narrative.More than having a beginning and an end, it pulls us into a world that make you feel the need to discover , read , so you have a chance to spend a littletime in the bountiful village and The Wall.Superb work of art, Sowmya Aji
