Remember what the correct title of a book is when you're recommending it to a friend

J had raved to me about reading "The Inheritance of Loss." In an effort to be erudite, I had purchased the book and started to read it last week. I unfortunately had trouble getting through it, ending up on around page 100 after a few hours of half-hearted reading. So, talking to J a few minutes ago, here's what transpired:

Me: so far i'm liking the story of biju in new york better than the things going on in india
J: biju????
Me: maybe because the narrative is something that i can understand and picture a little better
J: who's biju?
Me: the cook's son in new york
Me: who is going between lots of jobs
J: who huh?
Me: lol didn't you read this?
J: ummm
J: i don't remember a cook
Me: the cook in india
Me: the cook for the judge
Me: who has a son in new york city
J: wut judge?
Me: WHAT
J: ummmmm
Me: are we reading the same book?
Me: The Inheritance of Loss?
Me: by Kiran Desai
J: OMG
J: i guided u to the wrong book
J: O_O

I'm supposed to be reading "The Namesake" by Jhumpa Lahiri! I'm going to pick that up tomorrow after I return this other book!
