The English Patient (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 259

Set in 1945, The English Patient explores the lives of four very disparate war torn people, a young woman and three men, who take refuge in a damaged villa north of Florence as the war retreats around them. In an upstairs room lies the badly burned English patient, alive but unable to move. His extraordinary adventures and turbulent love affair in the North African desert before the war provide the focus around which the vivid tales of his companions revolve. His very presence will forever change the destiny of those around him.

About the Author
Michael Ondaatje was born in Sri Lanka in 1943. He moved to England in 1954, and in 1962 moved to Canada where he has lived ever since. He was educated at the University of Toronto and Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, and began teaching at York University in Toronto in 1971. He published a volume of memoir, entitled Running in the Family, in 1983. His collections of poetry include The Collected Works of Billy the Kid: Left Handed Poems (1981), which won the Canadian Governor General’s Award in 1971. His fourth novel The English Patient (1992) was joint winner of the Booker Prize for Fiction and was made into an Academy Award-winning film in 1996. Michael was also nominated for the Man Booker International Prize in 2007. He lives in Toronto with his wife, Linda Spalding, with whom he edits the literary journal Brick.

Magnificent Read

There is absolutely no doubt about mastery of the writer. This book has a real story. A fancy amalgamation of Drama, story, poetry and philosophy. The reader might feel getting away in first 20 pages or so but once he catches up the rhythm of the writer, you can not put this down.

A love story at the back drop of World War II

Emotion, Romance , Confusion, Love, Hate, Deceit, Nationalism, War, Death, Destruction, Country, Pride, Service, Red Cross...all weaved together into a thick layered plot.
Either watch the movie by same name or read this book.

Magnificent!

I love how Ondaatje ends each chapter with an event but with a recollection or a memory. Passionate like the ocean on a particularly stormy night, intricate like an immaculately woven mughal motif, this is one book I couldnt put down. I have read it thrice and I have been held spell bound by Ondaatje’s tale of love and wistful longing, revealed through the memories of a completely burnt, nameless, faceless man who is called the English patient, because he only knows English.

Set in post-war Italy, The English Patient focuses on four survivors coming to terms with the aftermath of war. The Sr

Excellence in narration

The author is quite high on sensitive quotient and it reflects in his empathy to multiple characters. Got hold of this book after seeing the movie and this one doesn't disappoint either. There is a highly poetic quality in ideas and flow of the story, though it is non-linear. Valuable addition to any collection. Really 5 star...

The best thing which i like personally is use of very limited number of characters in the book, because of which the reader can relate to them quite easily. the There is absolutely no doubt this book is a booker prize winner. Hats off to the writer.

First to review

worth a read

You will be spellbound by this book. The English Patient is one of those classic books that deserve to be on book-shelf of all readers. This book has a complex structure however the author holds you through the plot following the successes and the misgivings of his characters.

Very good book.

Well my review here is biased, so stop reading it, might corrupt you.
I liked it because it portrays:
1. Pleasure of cheating
2. Pleasure of pain
3. Pleasure of being separated from your love.
4. the way it portray love, without certainties of future, fragile and vulnerable.

The one world needs to read

The English patient is a beautiful and classic portrayal of love and war.This is one of those which everyone needs to read.
Ondaatje has written his work very creatively. The most exceptional part about this book is the choice of characters, the best of them no doubtingly is the English patient. Ondaatje seems to have mastered tragedy but in the end you just might not feel sad. That is how magnificently he wrote.
I would rate it 4.5/5 because of its story line, perseverance and popularity. The book seems to waver off its topic a bit, that's where it scores low.
