A Burning

A Burning by Megha Majumdar has been on a lot of lists this spring/summer. And, while the story was interesting, I didn’t love it. It’s the tale of three people in India who are all connected to a woman who is arrested for a terrorist bombing of a train. We hear her perspective as well as one of her former teachers and a woman she knows in her neighborhood. It is interesting how the stories collide, but the writing style didn’t keep me interested and the ending was so surprising and abrupt that I was taken aback. Overall, this one wasn’t for me.
