If you fancy a tragic love-story loosely themed on Othello, with a healthy sprinkling of snakes then you will love this book! Herpetologists (I didn't know what they were either!) run around England and India in mad love triangles desperately seeking fulfillment. Throw in some adultery, the 7/7 bombings and an uncommunicative teenager and what do you have? A contemporary update on any Maeve Binchy classic.
