Comments

For various reasons, many readers do not leave public comments / reviews on Amazon, social media, or elsewhere. But a few of them wrote to me directly. Here are some excerpts from what they said (names withheld; might add more here in due course):

  • “… your book has given me some powerful things to think about and I am now intentionally slowing my completion of same for fear that it will be over soon.”
  • “The conversations of your protagonist Ved were very cathartic. I liked the book, and I am glad you wrote it. It provided me with some closure to my life.”
  • “your book was a mirror to a lot of deliberations and tribulations i have already gone through ... but i am certain, [it] will get to some readers at the right time, and have a not insignificant impact on their thoughts and lives.”
  • “I read it from cover to cover pretty fast (the book is fast-paced). The story should be very interesting to both the NRI and the Indian (who is very curious about the NRI). I do know that I keep trying to figure my NRI sisters and your book helped.”
  • “A gripping novel of ideas is a difficult thing to pull off. You have done it with some style, Namit. Bravo!”

Books by Namit Arora

  • “Namit Arora does for Silicon Valley what Tom Wolfe did for Wall Street in The Bonfire of the Vanities: with keen eye and sharp wit, he captures the culture and mores of the place. But Arora is funnier. And sweeter.” —S. Abbas Raza, Editor, 3QD.

  • The Lottery of Birth reveals Namit Arora to be one of our finest critics. In a raucous public sphere marked by blame and recrimination, these essays announce a bracing sensibility, as compassionate as it is curious, intelligent and nuanced.” —Pankaj Mishra
