Hey guys (:
So i'm reading the book The Namesake.
I'm currently on the part where he's 14. [Chapter 4 (1982)]
Has anyone else read this book?
It seems REALLY good so far Smile

I saw the movie and didn't really like it much, I felt they kind of degraded the Indian culture.Unhappy In general I enjoy Indian genre books, but something like Namesake where Indians do no appreciate their culture just bothers me.
