    Fireflies MOBI ´ Hardcover fireflies download, Fireflies KindleAfter reading 4 5 books I always dive back into a classic The slow pace of the story the deeper meaning of words the grey areas where characters seek their energy a classic has the power to take away all the heaviness Last month I picked up Fireflies by Shiva Naipaul as my classic and I must say it was a complete roller coaster ride of emotions From the characters to the situations they were pushed into I was completely engrossed into itThe story of Fireflies revolves around Trinidad's most respected Hindu Family the Khojas who are superbly orthodox and reside over acres of useless land that reaps the lowest uality of sugar cane and have hoards of jewelry fiercely guarded by Mrs Khoja The only silver lining they have is Baby the protagonist of the story who is married off to a bus driver and who doesn't want to settle down like a regular KhojaThe characters of Fireflies are pretty much a hateful lo

    Fireflies MOBI ´ Hardcover fireflies download, Fireflies KindleAnother gem on my bookshelf I loved the pace of this book it's well defined characters in particular the strong will powered Mrs Lutchman and their hopes and despairs and attempts at finding and holding on to identities in a changing world There are funny moments moments when you want to rip your hair out and give Mr Koja or Romesh a good slap in the face and moments when you'll struggle to hold a tear back There were definitely some surprises on the way but not wanting to add any spoilers to my review I'll refrain from commenting
