For what it's worth this is a pretty good book for me. Its heavy as the trigger warnings will tell you but I don't think the topics were handled disrespectfully.
There's also a lot of twists in the book which is what eventually got me hooked as I was hesitant to continue reading at first.
Not related to the book itself but also not unrelated I am going to look how accurate people feel at the representation of India and all of that throughout the book so I'm interested in doing that dive after reading this book and how that may change how I see it.
