Books I'm Reading

Right now, I am reading "The Raj Quartet," a HUGE book that consists of four related novels by Paul Scott about India and its quest for independence from Great Britain. I'm currently in "The Jewel in the Crown" which is the first of the four. Character-driven, it shifts viewpoints from chapter to chapter, thereby giving the reader an excellent perspective on the different ways that the same events were viewed by different people. There is a mysterious "investigator" who is the prompt for several of the stories and I am wracking my brain trying to figure out who he is. (We do know he's a he.) I'm on page 325 of 450, so I may be in suspense for a while.
