I have mixed feelings about this book. Over all I give it 3 1/2 stars. I liked the characters but I thought it was more about the relationship between the each married couple rather than the 4 girlfriends as promoted. I also thought that it threw a lot of issues at the reader (domestic abuse, sexual assault, having a queer character, Muslim vs Paris) but only skimmed the surface a on each of them. It is disappointing that the reunion of the friends isn’t part of the book, then maybe we would see their friendship in action. It would have been nice to learn of Zoha’s transition to living in America and how she manages. Then meanwhile how is Iqbal managing back in Bombay? Maybe that’s a sequel in the making?
