    Oleander Girl PDF À Hardcover oleander pdf, girl pdf, Oleander Girl PDF/EPUBI wanted so to love this as One Amazing Thing is one of my 5 star reads of the past However this one did not touch me in quiet the same way I am thinking that it was not the story but rather the main characters whom I did not connect with That said Divakaruni writes beautifully I was able to get a sense of the culture the tradition and the pride and sense of family of these characters I actually enjoyed the secondary characters better than t

    Oleander Girl PDF À Hardcover oleander pdf, girl pdf, Oleander Girl PDF/EPUBSister of my Heart was a wonderful book and the reason I sought out by this authorOleander Girl was an OK read but nothing like SisterI grew interested in young headstrong and naive Korobi and her story although melodramatic at times Pia was a little sweetheart As for the other characters I think I would have liked concise character development Just when I thought I knew one of them they would start to act suspiciously or in a confusing manner Emotions ran hot and cold It may have been the fact that the book takes place in a time when people are breaking with their age old customs and changing with the times like it or not Even so the story itself held enough intrigue to keep me reading to its satisfying conclusion

    Oleander Girl PDF À Hardcover oleander pdf, girl pdf, Oleander Girl PDF/EPUBOleander Girl started off slow but it improved I didn't entirely buy into Korobi and Rajat's romance to begin with It seemed very Tess of the d'Urbervilles ish with Rajat especially loving Korobi in part because of the environment and heritage from which he thought she came We saw in Hardy that this doesn't work out well but Divakaruni's novel is not Hardy's so things turn out a bit differently in this case At other times the story seemed very cliche Girl goes off right before marriage in a version of the quest to find herself has some hitches in her relationship that still need to be worked out but then who doesn't? and on her journey meets an attractive guy of similar age with whom she has some 'chemistr

    Oleander Girl PDF À Hardcover oleander pdf, girl pdf, Oleander Girl PDF/EPUBBrief review sorry This is one of those books that is best served where the surprises are as unspoiled as possibleI absolutely loved this book I haven't read many of Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's books this is my second of hers but I want to find her entire backlistI think what struck me most about this book is how easy it is to take for granted the idea of knowing where you come from Korobi thought she did even though her parents are dead And once she learned that her entire life was essentially a lie she made the decision to find the truthThis is an amazing book and I hope everyone reads itHighly recommended
