I liked how this book had a realistic representation of what some South Asian families in the USA with immigrant parents are like. The book shows the children, first generation Indian-Americans, drifting away from their parents’/family traditions and towards more Western lifestyles. They can’t be blamed for that because they’re living in the USA, so of course they would have great Western influences in their life. I like how Jhumpa Lahiri depicted this well, and not in a cringey way, as I’ve seen some do before. Besides that, the book is written well and the plot and characters are developed amazingly. I even shed a tear at some parts. I would give this book 5 stars.
