    2. Overall I enjoyed this book The plot was detailed and I enjoyed the way that Anna brought together all of the characters as the novel progressed I felt real empathy for the central character The reason I have given this three rather than four stars is because of the way the narrative is structured Anna cuts scenes frequently and, although this works on many occasions, I found that it made the novel too disjointed for my taste and felt that it disrupted the narrative flow A shame, as apart from t [...]


    3. It was a free novel I won through the giveaway An enchanting novel I loved it, couldn t wait to find a quiet moment to read a few pages, and then I had a hard time putting it down everytime I was under its spell from around page 50 until the end, there was no let down, no unwanted lenghts, the pace and rythm were constant and my interest didn t falter An excellent work I rarely give a five star note, but I enjoyed this one so much I can t help it It took me the first 50 pages to really get into [...]


    4. After a friend of mine lent me The Kitchen House as a recommended read, I took her up on her next recommendation and borrowed this next book called Waiting for the Monsoon This book is a good read The author gives you great cultural language to work with and understand without distracting from the storyline The setting is in India, but crosses over to English territory periodically to give the story some depth The story does not evoke tears, but it is a sad tale.The story is a life journey for a [...]


    5. I received a copy of this book in a free giveaway from It is a highly unusual love story to say the least with many twists in the plot We are introduced to the heroine, Charlotte Bridgwater, an older widow, who is struggling to maintain her rundown family estate, with the help of one Indian servant, in Rampur, India She cuts the grass before dawn in the morning to hid her family s impoverished condition from her wealthy Indian social club friends.She also cares for her elderly invalid father, a [...]


    6. In compliance with FTC guidelines, I am disclosing that I received this book for free through First Reads.I finally finished it It was really good in parts, but the format was difficult for me to follow Keeping track of all the characters while switching to different locations and years was a lot of work Some days I didn t have the energy.Overall, though, I liked it It was a decent read, and the I got to know the characters and become invested, the better I liked it I d like to give it 3.5 star [...]


    7. Dutch Van de hand van Threes Schreurs verschenen voorafgaand aan haar nieuwe roman Wachten op de moesson al vier andere boeken, twee films en diverse documentaires Maar wellicht dat toch niet meteen bij iedereen een lichtje gaat branden bij het lezen van haar naam Threes Schreurs opereert dan ook onder een pseudoniem Threes Anna.Lees meer op 8WEEKLY


    8. I think this book was translated from Dutch to English making the prose slightly monotonous and choppy There were too many random story lines that didn t come together seamlessly The author took the easy way out with tidying up the loose ends Not too convincing.Too many pages to wade through.


    9. It took a couple of chapters to catch the how the changing time and people were weaving together and then I found it difficult to put the book down Colours are vivid, smells are visceral, characters are those you want to listen to and I wanted them to tell me about their lives Not entirely happy with the ending but that did not detract from the overall enjoyment of the read.


    10. Really loved the visual nature of this book and Ms Anna s writing style You could see all the vibrant colours she described and it made you see both the beauty and the poverty of India Wonderful, vivid characters The back forth in time narration and intertwining of stories of the various characters is wonderfully plotted Enjoyed it very much.


    11. This book was wonderful and creative until you get to near the end and you realize how truly tragic the lives of most of the characters has been The circles and coincidences become a bit incredible If you ignore that, the writing is lyrical and evocative, and India is still revealed as a country rife with extreme poverty, tenacious people and haunting history A good choice for a book group


    12. Loved it A mixture of drama, comedy, and a little magica wonderful story of different, very beautiful, and evocative scenes I agree wholeheartedly I highly recommend this thoroughly captivating novel.


    13. Loved this book It was a challenge jumping back and forth from year to year but very worth it in the end The characters were very realistic and full of emotion.d it captured my attention.Will definitely recommend.


    14. Fascinating book about a fascinating time and place Ms Threes Anna has created wonderfully complex and unique characters my particular favorite, Madan Engrossing, entertaining and informative a great read


    15. Difficult to start but ultimately very enjoyable The story spans generations at a time when India as a country and culture were undergoing vast changes A woman s life intertwined with so many others over generations Reminded me of E M Forrester.


    16. A beautiful story of love and loss Anna elegantly weaves multiple stories, across time and geography, to create an amazing tapestry It was a great read I particularly enjoyed the sprinkling of magical realism and the impressive capturing of India.


    17. I almost abandoned it There was too much going on and time jumped all over the place It was worth it in the end A beautiful story but I didn t get into it until well past page 150 Don t give up It s definitely worth it


    18. I found this book not an easy read too many storylines all told in short pieces going backward and forward in time what I did not like about the story are the frequent coincidences which are hard to believe, the story in itself was interesting enough.


    19. A wonderful book that has it all love story, drama, cultural aspects, historical background it makes you travel to a very hot and very dry summer in India The characters are vivid, the story wonderfully plotted Really deserves the 5 star rating


    20. This is a beautifully written book The author skillfully moves through different periods in the characters background slowly revealing their stories.



    21. I really enjoyed this book It kept me reading long into the night and it was very nicely written Loved visualizing all the places the author brought us to A definite read


    22. Really enjoyed this book The author really jumped around time line wise but it all came together in the end.



    23. A slow build up but hard to put down once it gets going Fascinating look at how the characters cross paths over the years Great book
