Lost. Through her prose in a novel titled, Whereabouts, Jhumpa Lahiri found a way for me to feel the vertigo faced by her protagonist. This unnamed narrator has lost her bearings, and we join her disequilibrium as she wanders in search of what she has lost. The mood Lahiri creates joins readers to the loneliness of the narrator, and every fragment adds to our hope that she will find her way. Before long, we find ourselves becoming observant with the narrator and rooted as ourselves in a time and in a place. Fans of literary fiction are those readers most likely to enjoy this finely crafted novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Wherabouts from amazon.com.
