    I picked out this book on the recommendation of the librarian when I asked for something different I m really not sure whether or not I liked this author s style or not He uses a lot of parentheticals and very long sentences, and it is sometimes difficult to keep track of what is going on But he does write very intelligently, so it s an interesting read.The story is two fold, of the alternating chapters variety The narrator is Owen, an Anglo Indian half English, half Indian. from I I picked out this book on the recommendation of the librarian when I asked for something different I m really not sure whether or not I liked this author s style or not He uses a lot of parentheticals and very long sentences, and it is sometimes difficult to keep trac...

    The Bloodstone Papers is the first book by Glen Duncan that I ve read without the extra draw of the supernatural, but it was no less compelling once I d given it a chance A teacher approaching middle age, making ends meet with bar tending and writing cheap romances, nurses a broken heart and is trying to write the book, the story of his parents courtship and life in India just before and after its independence Their story is told in alternating chapters, covering how they grew up and giving a The Bloodstone Papers is the first book by Glen Duncan that I ve read without the extra draw of the supernatural, but it was no less compelling once I d...
