I approached this book looking to read a good narrative, but instead I was taken on an interesting journey through different cities and times as the author, Kalpanik S., transitions to life in the USA in various locales.
While I enjoyed the subtle humor and storyteller's digressions, I found it to be more like a memoir or journal for the author than a cohesive story. Best part of the tale was the accompanying photos (and a photo-essay chapter).
But the poor print quality and black&white reproduction left me wanting. I would recommend that the next edition take advantage of the dozens of beautiful photographs by enlarging many of them and printing in color, as well as correct the number of I noticed. All in all though, it was a quick, fun read, and was neat to experience US life through foreign-born eyes.
