Review Chitra Bannerjee Divakaruni - The Mistress of Spices

I loved Chitra Bannerjee Divakaruni books. Read a few and enjoyed them tremendously. This was not only a disappointment but for me it took the fantasy too far! I did not seem to understand the story very well I think - it was very descriptive and I learned things about spices which I did not know about, but overall disappointing.

One of the few books where I watched the movie before I read the book. The movie was very disappointing as well so maybe I carried that perception to the story.


  1. I'm not familiar with this book. Sorry it disappointed but it sounds like you gave it (and the movie) a fair try.

  2. I really didn't like that movie myself. I found it pretentious and pointless, not to mention badly made and acted.

  3. I have this movie on my list of movies to watch. I think I'll take it off. Thanks you for your honest thoughts on both the book and movie.

  4. ah say it isn't so. sorry to hear that it was a flop. Hmmm one down and fingers crossed for your next book.

    too bad it did not measure up.
