It always takes me a while to finish an adult book, whether it be good or bad. In this case, the book was actually good. Not a lot happens, I have to admit but the writing style is so beautiful, I kept coming back for more. The story line is pretty simple, in fact the whole book is simple but the way it is written will keep you engrossed in the book. This book is basically about finding oneself hence the title, The Namesake. If you are more into adult books then I definitely recommend this to you.
