    Six stories, three countries all connected by one magnificent saree A beautiful read set in the background of Lanka Tamil problems, gives a lovely peak in the life of weavers and deals with many complex emotions Really enjoyed reading this one inspite of the daunting 540 pages length

    Saree had all the right potential to be a wonderful and emotional journey It was supposed to be a novel with six different stories, all interwoven and connected through a precious garment Instead it felt like a big confused mess The first story opened well, a young girl about to begin her career as a Saree maker However, it quickly turned to a hurried, cliched insta love that read like a bad romance novel I was not impressed The second story was the one I enjoyed the most as it focused a l Saree had all the right potential to be a wonderful and emotional journey It was supposed to be a novel with six different stories, all interwoven and connected through a p...

    Six stories that appear separate even how they are written is vastly different told from 1st to 3rd person, changing tense and the gender of the narrator but connect to become one book Set in Sri Lanka and India, and also a small part in Australia we read about a culture that many books don t focus on It is a heavy read in places Quiet a few of the words are written in their original language I found it a lot easier to comprehend once I referenced the glossary at the back of the book Six stories that appear separate even how they are written is vastly different told from 1st to 3rd person, changing tense and the gender of the narrator but connect to become one book Set in S...

    This book held a lot of promise but was very weak in places I enjoyed the 1st story and the final story, but the ones in between were not as strong or enjoyable to read The endings to all stories were neatly tied up and it was a satis...

    Saree is rather ambitious, attempting to combine six stories together to create common ending The first story is probably the best a young girl from a poor, cruel family has hidden talents as a sari maker but is struck down with some unfortunate events, but it s almost too much of a cinderella story to be considered groundbreaking or original The remainder of the stories are either rushed, poorly composed, or not interesting I admit to skipping through a few chapters because I couldn t st Saree is rather ambitious, attempting to combine six stories together to create common ending The first story is probably the best a young girl from a poor, cruel family has hidden talents as a sari maker but is struck down with some unfortunate events, but it s almost too much of a cinderella story to be considered groundbreaking or original The remainder of the stories are either rushed, poorly composed, or not interesting I admit to skipping through a few chapters because I couldn t stand the way they were written There was an attempt to really immerse the reader into particular charact...
