A friend "insisted" that I had to read this book. I was discouraged by its length(936 pgs.), yet now that I've read over 300 pages I don't think it's long enough! I have learned - and enjoyed - so many facts and incidents about Bombay that i don't believe I could have garnered anywhere else. The writingis smooth with vivid iimages making up a fascinating story. It's one of those wonderful experiences where you can lose yourself in the epic of it and be transported for a time to the author's world. Enjoy.
A friend gave me this book as a gift. I haven't even finished the book and decided to buy a copy for a family member for Christmas! I am loving this book and not wanting to put it down. The descriptions of Bombay make me want to visit. He has a great way of describing his environment and all the people he meets. I take this book with me wherever I go. Not your typical beach read, but I can't put it down. I laugh, I cry...and if I could, I would stay up all night to read it!
What a story. Although called a novel it seems, given the author's background, to be fact mixed with fiction perhaps. Whatever, this book is not to be missed. At almost 1,000 pages, I was sorry to come to the end. Having spent time in India and Bombay, among other places he mentions, the images he calls forth through his writing are rich and real. If you read only one book this year, THIS IS THE ONE.
