Though their radical political gestures are less convincing than their mutual attraction, it is their political ideology, much more than religion or class bias, that defines their generation and separates it from the previous one. The fireflies do not always flash in unison.

    Communism forms a shady yet idealistic backdrop to much of the story. In a Japanese residential neighborhood, made of flimsy wood and paper houses, there is no way to fight the fires. A car stopped by and took some of us to Moscow. Seita is a young teenager, and his sister Setsuko is about 5.

    It's an energetic tour de force, occasionally almost tripping over itself in its condensed rush but also making for a vibrant and gripping read. One of Hyder's major themes is this overlap of different identities and allegiances: on one level the Bengalis are unified by culture Fireflies in the Mist book language Hyder emphasizes Bengal's culture heritage, with many of her characters involved in music, theater, and dance, and literature also figuring prominentlyyet on other levels they share more with others, from those drawn to the English way of life the Hindus, in particular to those embracing Marxism and Communism to those who have adopted Christianity. This time, the readers are saved that agony because it comes from the author herself. What are they saying with their flashing? For Seita, it's like he can try to build a heaven for just the two of them.
