There were two stories in one but neither one was really that interesting. The repeated toing and frowing between the story of the narrators grandmother's life in India and her own travels tracing her grandmother's life was not well handled - I'm not sure if it was the narrators fault, the directors fault or the author's fault - it jarred and I was left disappointed. I'm glad I gave it a go but it was not what I wanted, expected or hoped for. It was rather an anticlimax to what has been a most interesting delve into Indian history and literature. I felt compelled to move on after this book.

What did you like best about Heat and Dust? What did you like least?
I liked the 1930's part a lot. The "contemporary parallel" was awkward and unnecessary.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
The characters were vivid and well drawn. Their "interior" life and motivations were not well done.
What does Julie Christie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She does a great job reading it.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
