    1. It is astonishing the way U.C describes some simple, unremarkable passages like waiting in a queue or flicking a cigarette stub they assume lyrical, almost metaphorical proportions but then you realize he s probably just screwing with us But there s no way to tell.His fascination with the great Indian dysfunctional family Weight Loss , The Last Burden and also the media, as dystopian as he can perceive it to be, continues in this book as well.Not even close to English August s pedigree, this is [...]


    2. It s a trademark Upamanayu Chatterjee book, peppered with witty dialogue, absurdly funny ideas and generous amounts of black humour This one is about death surprise , loneliness, familial relations and degradation and indignity after death.The book starts off well, is very funny, but becomes a little boring and dense midway But worth reading through to the end for the way the story is wrapped up.


    3. Way To Go by Upamanyu Chatterjee is the most difficult book I have read and finished for I was not quite sure at once of the intended readers of this work I for one am not one of them At 359 pages this book is long in all aspects from the sentences it uses to the life of its characters and is definitely not an easy read being a tad profound to my sensibilities I picked up this book going by its cover which has a certain obscurity attached to it that one can almost miss its title if one is not pa [...]


    4. A total treat to read The story line was basic, and fuzzy and kept rolling, and in the end I didn t care much what had happened because I enjoyed the writing so much I immediately bought another Upamanyu Chatterjee book, and am delighted to soon continue my escape from dodgy cardboard reality, to another perspective where the backyard fence may look squarely at me, and line up the most important matters in life for the firing squad.


    5. I m interested in the characters and the place and all but there s just something wrong with the sentences Too many clauses or too many double negatives Or not enough sleep Sometimes I have to read a sentence three times to figure out which clause refers to which other does it mean the thing or not the thing I wonder if thats the way people in India speak English.


    6. What can I say You either get Chatterjee, or you don t He s such a powerfully convoluted writer, but he s undoubtedly the king of dark humor It just gets tiring sometimes reading a six line sentence with multiple commas and dashes But if you persevere, it doesn t guarantee you get the plot either.


    7. Difficult to follow, filled with dark humour sarcasm Some quotes were really beautiful while others were too long to follow Every part starts in the police station The structuring of the story is beautiful but the final 2 chapters lack clarity A different attempt an one time slow read.
