Book review: Haunting Bombay, by Shilpa Aagarwal

Haunting BombayHaunting Bombay by Shilpa Agarwal

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Haunting Bombay is one of those novels that grows on you as you keep reading. At all times, though, it's a masterpiece of literary fiction. Rich, detailed descriptions do justice to the setting and history of the city, and there's no shortage of references to food--my favorite nostalgia-evoking parts of Indian novels. The characters were realistic and well developed. The blend of literary fiction, mystery, and paranormal worked surprisingly well. Definitely worth reading.
