It was easy to rely to her view of life, I liked her a lot and felt really sorry to see her in such difficulties.

What I Didn’t Like: She instinctively knew that she should not talk about her lover to her parents. On the side are Priya’s aunt whose own parents never fail to remind her what a disappointment she is for her inability to land a husband after meeting more than 60 potential husbands; a sister-in-law who thinks she’s better than the family she married into; and the intertwined and complicated dynamics between multi-generational men and women of Priya’s family.
Everybody was really colorful, with sweet or strong personality and it was funny and entertaining to follow the terrific discussions, coated in indian traditions. Give it a try, it was an easy read. Had my answers in this book. I have such wonderful memories of mangoes too! Not only the terrible characters, but the ending was bogus and predictable. She faces a difficult situation and tries to find her place as an adult, which is not an easy thing:
The Mango Season by Amulya Malladi
Looking forward to read more from this author. Apr 14, Khush rated it really liked it. Now, Priya travels back to India to spend a week with her family and inform them about her upcoming marriage.
Dec 09, Nanya Srivastava rated it really liked it. There are some books, malladii when once started are difficult to put down again. I couldn’t believe how racist the family was and how set in their traditional ways. Anyway, I picked up Anulya Malladi’s The Mango Season in aeason office book cabinet because it was nice and thin which means I don’t have to take too long to finish itmxlladi the cover had nice juicy mangos on them Mmmmmm I buy only those books which I am sure I will re-read.
I felt that it was truly like a 6 inch deep pond. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Most of mangk times it is my son who reminds me that he needs to be taught, unless he is at the computer I just devoured this book – like a juicy, ripe, luscious mango. The name caught my attention. And things that used to seem natural a buffalo strolling down a newly laid asphalt road, for example now geview totally chaotic. Mar 10, Preeti rated it it was amazing Shelves: So, never got it home.
I highly recommend this book! Also includes a few good South Indian recipes And the biggest challenge she faces this holiday is to tell her parents all about Nick, the man in her life. The language is simple and the story is cliched, but the narrative keeps you hooked.
I enjoyed this quick read so much until the last pages when a small detail ruined it for me Not only the terrible characters, but the ending was bogus and predictable. If you are 27 years old, you’re over the hill, and may as well be a spinster all your life. As afterthoughts how do you manage to read so many books?
And finally, they relent when they see that their daughter would not listen to them, and that she has really made up her mind. I do recommend it, it’s a true page turner. The characters are so interesting and the events that are natural to their society seem so foreign to me, making it all the more interesting. I love these sort of books, which totally take you to the amupya they are set. What is interesting about the book is revisw each chapter begins.
Plus she is over 25 and with advanced degrees holding options galore? The Mango Season by Amulya Malladi. As expected, I finished it pretty quickly, and surprisingly, I kinda liked it.
What with the seaxon and the exotic-sounding words. Jun 09, Robbin Melton rated it it was amazing. She is already in love, engaged and living with an American, Nick; they even share a joint mortgage.
Parents does everything in goodwill, knowing well that in an Indian marriage market, every extra year in the girl’s age reduces her value and salability. Want to Read saving…. Had my answers in this book. And thus we all lived happily ever after. BooksHopefully-Weekly Book Reviews.
I read whenever I get the time. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Mar 06, Raluca rated it really liked it. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
The Mango Season
I loved this book because of the “insiders perspective” into an Indian family’s life. Be the first to discover new talent!
I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the mango season, the way life in India reviea the hot, sultry summer was depicted. I didn’t know much about the Indian culture before reading this, but nalladi post-reading I find myself much more informed, which I appreciate a lot. There’s nothing ‘new’ in the story. The book has some good recipes in case one likes Indian food.
While others are forgettable: This book was so nice and easy to read. Sep 23, Michelle Wegner rated it really liked it Shelves:
