The Forbidden Daughter - Shobhan Bantwal

So I wasn't intending to use this for bingo, but is a quasi murder mystery.  I mean there is a murder and kidnapping.

 

Bantwal is basing the story in part on a clinc that was found to have aborted girl fetus in a wall in India a few years back as well as the practice of gender selection abortion.

 

The plot is somewhat predictable, but what is totally enjoyable is the friendship among Isha and her sister in law, Shelia.  Isha and her daughters are lovely characters.  The conflict that Isha feels that only with  her in laws and her own life is well done.

Codex 1962: A Trilogy - Sjón

I'm not quite sure what I just read.

 

No, really.

 

Sjon's writing has always been fluid and stunning.  And that's here.  

 

I liked the first two books the best.  The last, seems to be an written form of Sjon's own morality.

 

The first book is a wonderful expression of reader and writer working together.  So wonderful and brillant.  There is this whole sequence of reaching into a hous and a mind.

 

It's just wonderfully strange.
