I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The writer has an obvious love for Kashmir and presents a compassionate and subtle look at some of the untold damages created by the conflict, as seen by a young Sikh cook working for the army in Srinagar. The central presence of food and cooking was well done too. Also interesting that on the battlefield on the glacier, all that soldiers would eat were canned food...

I'm afraid any of this book's redeeming qualities were lost on me. I was not able to connect at all. Not to the characters or the storyline. For me, this book was just continuous rambling. I found the second half slightly more interesting than the first half, which gave me encouragement to finish it, but it is clearly not suitable for me.
