Publisher's Summary

Handsome anesthesiologist Neel is sure he can resist his family’s pleas that he marry a "good" Indian girl. With a girlfriend and a career back in San Francisco, the last thing Neel needs is an arranged marriage. But that’s precisely what he gets. His bride, Leila, a 30-year-old teacher, comes with her own complications. They struggle to reconcile their own desires with others’ expectations in this story of two people, two countries, and two ways of life that may be more compatible than they seem.

Very weak story

What disappointed you about A Good Indian Wife?

The beginning of the book, set in India looked very promising but quickly went downhill. None of it was believable. By the time the couple move to the USA. It loses all credibility. It is tedious with dislikeable characters.

I felt that the author had a good idea but no ability to develop the plot.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Well narrated.

What character would you cut from A Good Indian Wife?

All of them
