Em and The Big Hoom by Jerry Pinto - A Book Review

Em and The Big HoomEm and The Big Hoom by Jerry Pinto
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

How would you classify this novel? How would you describe it? My first throwaway line was "It is about a dysfunctional family... Erm, a dysfunctional mother..."

It made me wonder before I realized that I was wrong. I questioned just like the book puts it, "What is normal?" Who defines these blurred lines? How does love, affection, or hate makes these lines very subjective?

What pushes you across these lines? Is it the external forces? Is it the internal defeat? Is it the submission to the ashes to ashes, dust to dust eventuality? Just ride the train till you can and are allowed to. Smile, joke, and act normal.
