This is a wonderful book. It has a simple plot but builds upon it so beautifully and intricately that you almost feel as if you are in post-independence India.

I know Seth's characters better than some members of my family--and families are ultimately the subject of this novel. I eagerly await more from Vikram Seth.

A mystic journey through India. Vikram takes you into the lives of India as she was just after Independence. Truly moving and keeps you wanting to go on.

Pride and Prejudice Indian style. Informative background on Indian political systems and cultural ties. Easy reading. Dry Indian humour throughout.

Razor-sharp observation of human nature, told with humour and compassion. Imagine a modern day Jane Austen expanded onto a bigger canvas.

With a very simple, but very good English, the author makes you know India through a family, without tireing you in it's 1500 pages!

Needs editing. The prose is flabby and tedious. Lots of telling, not much showing, so to speak. No need for the book to this long.

Beautiful prose. Jane Austen and Charles Dickens (sort of) in India. I loved this book. Please, please write another, Mr. Seth.

Product was as advertised, arrived in a timely fashion. 4-CD jewelcase was damaged in transit, but CDs themselves were undamaged.
