Major Pettigrew's Last Stand review õ 103 One of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction and from the very first page of this remarkable novel he will steal your heartThe Major leads a uiet life valuing the proper things that Englishmen have lived by for generations honor duty decorum and a properly brewed cup of tea But then his brother's death sparks an unexpected friendship with Mrs Jasmina Ali the Pakistani shopkeeper f. If you are looking for something to read that is delightful charming with many layers of depth this is a book you will love Although it takes place in England this novel is not specifically about the geography of the land or the people of that geography It is much universal than thatIt is a story about romance but it isn t a romance novel It is a story about family but it isn t a family saga It is a story that deals with religion politics race relations and other sensitive topics but without proselytizing Everything fits together traditions values rebellion challenges and creates a story that is both timely and very realI loved the characters in this book even the ones who weren t lovable The plot and sub plots kept me turning pages and wishing I had time each day to devote to devouring each chapter This book and the characters in it affected me deeply and they were a reminder for me of the joys of readingThere were so many little nuggets of wit and wisdom within these pages that I had to stop writing them all down in favour of being one with the flow of the writing It is a rare and wonderful experience to feel completely included within a novel This one held me close through the enchantment of a wonderful story and excellent writingIf you have yet to read this book I am happy to recommend it with enthusiasm and confidence I can t imagine anyone whose life would not be touched in some way by the story and the writing
