Another one of my books.This book tells the story of a girl and her dog, who travels to India through a portal in her garden She travels, meets a boy, is hunted by evil spirits and witches and learns about her mysterious late uncle.A well thought out book, well written, and just the right amount of decription.

    10. A great read absorbing and exciting It also really conjures up the mystery and spirituality of the ancient city of Varanasi Kashi Highly recommended for teenage and adult readers.



    11. There was a great deal about this book that I liked very much The descriptions of Kashi were detailed and convincing, clearly at one time having been part of the fabric of the author s mundane reality he had been there, and in this tale he takes his readers with him I loved the olive billboard, filled mostly with Hindi script but ending in a picture of a packet of crisps and an English caption Bitos Full of snack and cracky Fun There were many well paced passages of richly descriptive writing As [...]
