    EBOOK DOWNLOAD The Village Hmmm I think I'm still digesting this one Struggling with a main protagonist who I'm sure I'm meant to dislike but can see no redeeming features in and who seems a little trite And yet there are so many things here to like The prisoners stories are told with poignancy and empathy and the characters are on the whole beautifully developed I just can't decide on how I feel at the end of it

review The Village

review The Village Nikita Lalwani µ 4 Read & Download The Village Read & Download Ï 104 In her award winning debut novel Gifted Nikita Lalwani crafted a brilliant coming of age story that “called to mind the work of such novelists as Zadie Smith and Monica Ali” The Washington Post Book World Now Lalwani turns her gimlet eye on an extraordinary village in India and explores the thin boundary between morality and evil innocence and guilt   After a long trip from London twenty seven year old BBC filmmaker Ray Bhullar arrives at the remote Indian village of Ashwer which will be the subject of her newest documentary From the outside the town projects a cozy air of domesticity small huts bordering earthen paths men lounging and drinking tea women guiding bright cloth through noisy sewing machines Yet Ashwer is far from traditional It is an experimental open prison a village of convicted murderers and the. The eye catching cover of this novel was for me ultimately the best part about it I really struggled to maintain any interest in the plot and I thoroughly disliked all of the characters Though the book poses some interesting uestions and examines some very thought provoking themes throughout I found its pace to be ploddingly slow and the story as a whole incredibly dry which is a shame as its premise sounded really appealingRay an Asian British film maker arrives at a small Indian village with her BBC colleagues in tow in order to make a documentary about life experienced there The village in uestion is no ordinary one however it is actually an open prison its inmates all found guilty of murder yet now able to live with their families in a very different sort of community As Ray and her colleagues begin to make the film and become ensconced in the life there the boundaries slowly become blurred and she is forced to uestion what will make a good story whilst examining her own moralsI really wanted to like this book it sounded genuinely fascinating and indeed some of the scene setting is very well done It paints a very detailed picture of life in the fictional village of Ashwer and of the varied struggles faced by the community I just found all of the characters to be so incredibly flat and unlikeable that I could not become invested in their lives The lead protagonist Ray is inherently irritating and idealistic and tries her best to fit in with everyone she meets but is unable to caught between cultures and though Indian is perceived to be a whitey by the villagers I realise that the way she is written was deliberate on the part of the author but Ray generally made for such a dull story The other two BBC colleagues are spiteful and seem to have absolutely no conscience The Indian characters by contrast appear to be just extras in a story Though we find out a lot about their lives and the crimes they have committed they have no real sense of personality and become mere cardboard cut outs which is a shame The small parts of the plots when they are focused on were by far the strongest aspects of this story for meThe foremost feeling that I took away from this book was sadly one of boredom I only finished reading it out of a sense of obligation to Netgalley and the publishers
