Book #47 of 2020 | A Burning by Megha Majumdar

Title: A Burning

Author: Megha Majumdar

Thoughts: It took me a little bit to get used to this book—it’s told from three very different, very distinct, points of view and narrative voices. Once I became familiar with the three central characters, I found myself really drawn to their unique voices.

Favorite Lines:
“If she had received a chance to tell her story, how might her life have been?” (p. 52)

“‘When paths show themselves, don’t be afraid to follow them.'” (p. 108)

“Americandi’s eyes follow me from task to task, waiting for my breakdown. But it doesn’t come. From my mother’s immense strength, I have borrowed a little.” (p. 193)

“Clouds like cotton pulled from a roll are moving under the moon, sometimes hiding it, sometimes revealing it. I am feeling that the world is so big, so full of our dreams and our love stories, and our grief too.” (p. 212)
