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.

Excellence in narrationThe 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...

Magnificent ReadThere 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.

worth a readYou 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.
