I couldn’t get into The Many Lives of Ruby Iyer, and I’ve been struggling to find out why. Ruby gets electrocuted and while she’s physically okay, from that moment she feels the power of the electricity through her body.
After that things start to get confusing. The setting is Bombay, which is very nice since you don’t often read about it, but it is also very unknown and chaotic. The writing here also starts to get more confusing as bad guys and Ruby and her sort of cop buddy are running loose and it is difficult to see what the end game is going to be. I also couldn’t connect with the characters, which will not have helped. It seemed interesting but in the end wasn’t for me.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
