    I was looking online for reviews of this book and stumbled upon your website.. as yours is one of the few I’ve managed to come across. Do read this novel, and share with us what you think. Maybe it’s the similar background the protagonist and I both share (Ceylonese tamil and helplessly, haplessly dreamy!) but this book really, really resounded with me and I’m eager to know if this is a notion I feel alone or shared with anyone else.

    That said, I’m also a Malaysian student studying at the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin, and yes, Dublin is beautiful 🙂
