Book Description

THE HONEY GATHERER -
The story is set in a sparsely populated tract of the heavily forested foothills of the Himalayas: an area that lies roughly between India and Nepal and in places is virtually untouched. The ‘Forest People’ of this area have minimal contact with the outside world and dwell entirely in the forest living off its produce .These are the ‘Wild Honey Gatherers’ – a race almost extinct – they have strange ways and are rumored to possess the ability to communicate with birds and beasts. When encountered they fade into the forest shadows. Village people give them a wide berth fearing the strange occult or shaman powers they possess. ‘The forest Spirits protect them’ is a widely held belief.
This story is about one such family...its secrets, its mystical powers, and its accord with nature.

Written in a style that suits today’s fast-paced lifestyle where an elegance of words and precise sentences open up forest vistas that draw you into the lives and customs of the Honey Gatherers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gentle Read November 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed the book and the description about the peoples of that locale. Like life, the story ended before we were ready, but I liked the characters and enjoyed the break from the modern world. The descriptions of people seemed true to human nature. Also followed this with another book by the author. I will continue to look for his stories.

More like a child's book. Very short. Was expecting something to happen when it just ended. It wasn't what I expected.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard yo get through September 2, 2012
By Mrs.B
It wasnt a completely horrible book. It was hard to get through it seemed to me. Had some intersting parts but too far between most. The ending...seriously lacking. It just ended! In short I would recommend to anyone I know.

I really thought I would find this intersting given the geo setting. However, I found it so hard to get into that I finally deleted it from from "Fire"

I liked the concept but found I wanted more. The ending was trite. Wanted to dig a bit deeper into the spiritual aspects of the writing.

3.0 out of 5 stars was Ramu Jesus? September 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
I wanted to know more about Ramu. Was he supposed to be Jesus? There was a lot of forgiveness in this story. I don't know how the girl could forgive Ramu's son for his indiscretions. The ending was weak. I suppose it was meant to show how friendship transcends bad things that people do to you - turn the other cheek.

This just wasn't my type of story. Parts of it was interesting with the characters chosen, but overall it was not an enjoyable read.
