While the first novel was about the biography of her grand-mother and her mother, this book is an autobiography.
The novel is about an orphan girl who grows in a multitude of foster Swiss and French christians families while knowing that her mother, an Ottoman princess died, and her father, an Indian Rajadh is still alive. It is only as an adult free from any authority that she finally meets some members of her mother's family living in Paris and then meets her father in India and her Indian family.
The novel depicts clearly the various problems an orphan child had to confront from being sent from one family to another and feeling abandonned each time by people the child came to consider its own family. The novel gives also a detailed and realistic picture of India after Independance, after the partition with Pakistan, and after the end of the marajah rulings. Through the description of her life through the various stages of life and of India through several decades, the author wrote, discussed, analyzed and debated about two continuous major themes important to all readers and very relevant in Today's world: Identity and Family.
Family and Identity. Two themes that seem simple to understand, but there are so many realities and complexities associated with them. To understand, let me numerate the various identities the leading character has: 1.
Turkish mother 2. Indian father 3. Muslim from her mother and father 4. Born in France and lived in France 5. British citizen because England occupied India and father had British nationality at her birth 6. Raised early by a Swiss family 7. Raised later in a Christian girl couvent and families 8 Maybe American because her mom lied to her father and said she had an affair with an American 9.
A woman Asked once to become Pakistani citizen WOW. With so many different identities, one can go schizophrenic. During her childhood, she had no choice, but to accept the identity chosen for her. However, once a free adult, she went from one identity to the other until she was tired of having always to chose one identity against the other and realized that the best thing for her and mankind is the right not chose one identity in particular, but the right to chose all of them at once: to be a human open to the world.
This is a great novel to be read by all readers.

Shelves: reads , adult , asian-literature , biography , favorites. I loved it. It'll always remain with me. May 15, Patricia Ll. The continuation after 'de parte de la princesa muerta'. This time, Kenize talks about herself, after the death of this mother. Beautiful, but not so special. I guess it is a book only worth to read if you read the first one I hated the main character, every decision she made was stupid, and the book is slow.
It took me years to finish it. Probably it would have been wiser to abandon. Excellent continuation for De part de la princess mort. Confirmado, las segundas partes no son buenas. No es hasta llegar a ella que el libro puede considerarse como una mezcla de vlogs de una adolescente con la vida, debo admitir muy interesante, de la protagonista.
No le doy las 5 estrellas porque en algunos tramos del libro me costaba un poco apegarme a su lectura. I finished reading this book weeks ago and didn't care about updating this I guess I was waiting for the intensity and the passion from "Regards From The Dead Princess", but this was not the case.
At times I felt there was no cohesion. I had to push myself to finish the book. Kind of sad. I had much trouble getting through this book. It looked like it was a good read,the description on the back side of the cover was not bad. So, I thought I'd treat myself.
I started once, but couldn't get through. The second time I did, but not with pleasure. For me it was too chaotic, I didn't recognize myself or any familiar circumstance in it.

It is a lovely story when West and East are all the time interacting. No one told me this was a part 2. Is so boring, I fell sleep every time I start reading I'm still trying btw. After a few months i just give up. Jan 14, Grettel Perez rated it liked it. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers also enjoyed.
