Incandescence is not one to be missed. It will pull you in from page one, and then make you want to return upon completion.

Incandescence by Mehreen Ahmed – A Review by Kelli J Gavin

Incandescence Mehreen Ahmed

 

What an absolute honor it was to read Incandescence. Diving into the lives of the nuanced characters and those surrounding The House of Chowdhury, was an absolute treat. Each character with their own thoughts, feelings and struggles, interacting with each other in both positive and negative ways, enables the reader to find a bit of themselves within. Love, loss, joy and sorrow can all be found in the 400+ poetically written pages. Ahmed’s expertise describing the surroundings, helped me know so much more about a land that I have never set foot in. After reading this fine, beautifully written book, I now feel I can smell the flowers, witness the beauty of the tree branches and feel the warm wind on my face. Incandescence is not one to be missed. It will pull you in from page one, and then make you want to return upon completion. I am forever changed from this visit to The House of Chowdhury.
