#35 — The Year of the Runaways

The Year of the Runaways: A Novel by Sunjeev Sahota
Rating: 4/5
  • About Indian immigrants who come to England through quasi-legal and illegal means in order to support their families back home
  • This book will make you think twice about your first world problems
  • The novel leads you down a bleak path, then skips 10 years and all seems to have ended well enough; however, it leaves out the crucial bit about how they made it out of what seems to be impossibly bleak circumstances
