Broken Verses-Kamila Shamsie : A Moody Beauty From Across The Border


Broken VersesBroken Verses by Kamila Shamsie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It took me over a week to read this book, twice of what I’d normally have taken. This is because I’d linger over a phrase, a paragraph and often go back and read the whole page all over again. I stretched out the reading to savour the experience. I don’t remember the last time I wanted to do that with a book. The story of Aasmaani Inquilab is interesting enough. If the story moves at a slightly slower pace than one is used to in the current fare, it is more than made up for by how beautifully language is used. Kamila Shamsie makes an art out of writing as well as story-telling with ‘Broken Verses’ and excels in both.
