Bombay Time by Thrity Umrigar

This would have been a good book to share with a book discussion group, or literary class. The story unfolds in a leisurely manner. It starts with who I think it is the main character, but by the end I was immersed in "Bombay Time" and all of its characters.  It's one of those stories that are small and huge at the same time.

As I waited for the plot to unfold, I was caught up in the lives of the tenants of Wadia Baug. Not much happened and so much happened. There is a plot but it is not a fast-paced plot. In the course of an evening, we have attended a dinner party, but we have also seen this how everyone else arrived at that time and place If you're looking for an action story this is not the book for you. If you want to understand people and be temporarily immersed in a different culture, this book is perfect.

I see a world where all people accept each other as friends and neighbors, and celebrate each person's uniqueness as a vital part of everyone's life, like threads in a tapestry. -F. Shafer Junaid
