Several months ago, Open Road Media was offering hundreds of free Kindle books. I went on a rampage, acquiring about 400 titles over a space of two or three days.
I've never heard of Norman Lewis, but I do like learning about new places, so I downloaded this title, amongst all those others. Last week-end I selected A Goddess in the Stones: Travels in India to fulfill the Take the Jungle Cruise. #24 space on Booklikes-opoly.
I'm about 15% into the book, which was written in the 1990s. So far, it's making me a bit uncomfortable. I get a distinct colonial feel about it, about Lewis's perspective, but we'll see how it goes.
