Read full description of the books:
Nine short stories, each with fairly depressing themes, set across India, America and England. They are fiction, but apparently contain autobiographical threads.
They varied in enjoyment for me - some were 1 star, and I skimmed the last few pages of them, others I enjoyed much more (maybe 4 stars for one, 3 for others), but ultimately I didn't find them gripping or un-put-downable.
I probably favoured the India based stories, but that is typical of my reading interests over the UK or USA.
Overall it probably averages out to a fairly disappointing 2.5 stars, which I would have to round down.
