Find all of my reviews at Stars rounded up for the prettiest cover I ve seen so far this year The only way we can rectify our mistakes is to try and undo the wrong we have done This review is brought to you by Do you ever actively search for something that you know will bring you down It s been raining here for like 74 years and The Color of Our Sky looked like it might be a winner in the No I Don t Have Seasonal Affective Disorder I Just Read a Sad Book category I was spot on I mean look at this synopsisMukta was born to a long line of temple prostitutes and due to the caste system fulfills her destiny at the tender age of 10 Tara was born to a middle class family and a father who feels obligated to save as many children as possible from the horrible fate that awaits them When Mukta becomes one of the children Tara s father brings home life changes for both girls as their friendship develops But when Mukta is kidnapped Tara blames herself Tara remains haunted by the past so much so that as a grown woman she embarks on a journey to find the missing Mukta and save her once again from the brothelThere you have it Basically this reading experience can be summed up with a few simple words If you re looking for a real heart ripper outer this might be the book for you I had a few problems with the story mainly how a woman who worked three jobs in the US was able to travel to India indefinitely with no means of income especially considering her father s wealth or possible lack thereof when they immigrated to America was never really detailed and also how the corruption of various charity and welfare organizations in India was never brought up at all The second issue could be due to me reading Behind the Beautiful Forevers not too long ago though However if you are a reader who is able to just enjoy the story for what it is and can go without having every uestion answered you probably won t have any issues at all The writing was solid the timeline flowed nicely from past to present and the characters were all well developed Just remember you need to go into this one knowing that whenever you think things might look up they probably aren t ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you NetGalley

Read on the WondrousBooks blog Actual rating 35 This is one of those books which leave me with very mixed feelings To be honest I considered giving it 3 stars instead of 4 but I m feeling generous todayThe good sides1 It s touching and sad I m not saying that a sad book or a character s sad story is a good thing but if a book is able to influence you in any way it s a good thing I know because I ve had my fair share of books for which I really didn t give a damn2 The character of Mukta is uite beautiful I really enjoyed reading every single line written from her perspective She is extremely humble and kind loyal and generous in her case as she has nothing else what she shares with everyone is her big heart even though it gets bruised by many I was able to really feel her emotions and her pain and I spent the majority of the book rooting for her3 The writing is lovely Trasi just has a way with words especially when Mukta is the narrator There is great beauty in her descriptions Despite the many things I didn t approve of in this book I m in no way able to say that Amita Trasi is not a good writer What she lacks in creativity as far as the plot goes she makes up in the way she builds the philosophy of the book and the world in itThe bad sides1 It s sort of like season 2 of The Kite Runner India Nearly every character in The Color of Our Sky has an exact counterpart in The Kite Runner The idea of this book is so similar in fact that even many of the uotes are the same As a summary there are two kids one comes from a good family the other one is a servant of sorts they are friends but the richer child treats the other one like the servant that it is and doesn t really think that they are friends something happens to one of the children the other one says nothing not long after it goes to America with its father the other one stays in the home country years later the one that left returns to right its wrongs I could put some spoilers here which would set in stone my claim that the books have virtually the same storyline but if you are interested you can read it for yourselves2 Mukta s storyline as much as I liked it lacks depth It s sort of like the Memoirs of a Geisha minus 300 pages Too many years are skipped too many events We don t really follow the developmentchange of the character the reason for that is that we simply don t have the time the book ends too fast I was interested in what happened with Arun Sahib but that story was neither fully developed nor even properly ended3 I don t have a tolerance for the Tara type of character She is the exact replica of The Kite Runner s Amir Acts like an ass when she is a child then later just comes out of nowhere to make herself feel better and everyone thinks she s a hero I was extremely frustrated by the trust Mukta had in Tara and the way she always hoped and believed that Tara truly loved her and had her back No matter what happened in the book I m not sure that is so Whatever Tara might have done it would have all been too late in my opinionAlso I can t not find the way Tara had an endless supply of money very implausible She spent 5 whole years in India without working a single day and yet she had enough money to do whatever she wanted bribe people buy plane tickets and Even though we are told that her father comes from a rich family how rich can a village aristocrat be And we are not given reason to believe that she received vast sums of her father s family inheritance anyway4 What happened with the secondary characters As soon as they served their purpose they simply disappeared What happened with Tara s grandmother with Madam with Arun Sahib with Tara s friend from America with a dozen secondary characters Are we to assume that this time Madam decided to just drop it Her description makes that highly unbelievable5 Why do all books at least partially set in India that I ve read always end up with someone s ashes being thrown in the river I realize it s a tradition but when every author starts using it it becomes a stereotype Stereotypes lead to people being offended and from this book as well as others it s obvious that the stereotype is self createdWould I recommend this booka Yes if you are avid readers It s moving and has a nice enough plotb No if you don t read so often There are books similar to this one and yet better so if you are only going to choose one pick The Kite Runner or A Thousand Splendid Suns
