Aymaran Shadow by Hemanth Gorur Reviewed by Alex Canton-Dutari I must admit that I am always wary of books that have quite a few reviews already posted, especially when the ratings cover the full 1-5 spectrum. Nevertheless, there is a soft spot for my colleagues who write in English as a second language. This being said, I had to keep in mind that "perhaps the Aymaran people spoke bad Spanish," which allowed me to overlook the author's using an additional language too lightly. Especially my own -- Spanish. I did find some of the poetry that Indian English tends to bring to my ears -- especially the lack of contractions. Not many readers unfamiliar with this version of English appreciate the end result. There was a dialogue which took the form of an internet chat -- I found this amusing and perhaps original, especially in a story that began with the past -- centuries -- and dealt with the present. This was an interesting read.
