He had years earlierThese lives are woven through with the ongoing discipline of work and the responsibility and tedium of family life Lives laced with the joys of old friendship the pleasure of sex and the redemptive kindness of one’s own children This is the story of the living Living is a gift though each of us has trials and tribulations Leading a dull unvarying life is a choiceFlexibility and willingness to experience change and growth is anotherClaire a shoe factory worker in England and Arun a chappal maker in India both have uneventful lives The story alternates between these two voices and enumerates the choices they felt should have been made to control their destiniesThe digital copy was difficult to read and contained many spacing errors The text was sometimes unclear as to which character s feelings were being revealed A disappointing read

The Living

Is she ready to move on from memory and the routine of her days Arun an older man in a western Indian town makes hand sewn chappals at home A recovered alcoholic now a grandfather he negotiates the newfound indignities of old age while returning in thought to the extramarital affair The story of two people running in parallel one in England the other in India Claire a single mother who works in a shoe factory one of the last ones in England Arun is a worker making chappals slippers in KolhapurThe book is a recounting of their lives their humdrum everyday life where for Claire nothing ever seems to change while for Arun has all the indignities that come with old age to faceIt might have been interesting had the writing been evocative In this case it was just tedious This is one of those few books that I struggled to read In fact it took me a while to understand where this was going when the chapter suddenly started talking of Arun That might have been because this was a review copy yet to be proof read The characters didn t work for me although Arun felt a little relatable than Claire Claire just felt self obsessed to me Over all a very insipid read one that I could wait to turn the last page of May be it was just me the wrong reader for the book but this book I wouldn t recommend to anyone

There is a certain number of breaths each of us has to take and no amount of care or carelessness can alter thatThis is the story of two lives Claire is a young single mother working in one of England’s last surviving shoe factories her adult life formed by a teenage relationship The title and the blurb aptly describe the book so nothing much of the story from my partWhat I would like to say is that it is a slow moving book and the pace slows down as it proceeds and towards the end there are a few loose ends which we can interpret or built upon in our own wayThe two protagonists of this story are Claire a young British woman and Arun an old Indian man who live in their own countries and the only fact connecting them is that they both work in the footwear trade but in different ways and capacities How they spend their days seems to be the focal point of the story I was almost sure that they will intersect at some time or other but that never happenedOn the whole I liked it but there was something missing
