An absolutely amazing book. Slightly monotonous at times, but beautiful. The language is lovely and picturesque. I ended the book with a contented sigh and smile on my lips. Perfect for old Kolkata lovers.

The Shadow Lines

Amazing to read this book again after so many years. Amitav Ghosh just goes from strength to strength and I would recommend every single one of his book, you would be missing out if you did not read them.

Easily his best work

I started reading Ghosh with 'The Glass Palace' and that remained my favourite among his works - The Calcutta Chromosome (brilliant work too!), Sea of Poppies and The Hungry Tide. Until I read 'The Shadow Lines'.

It reads beautifully, like any Amitav Ghosh work. When it comes to using language, he is easily one of the best. Unlike most of his other works, there is much less research as such that has gone in. So he basically plays with different kinds of people - right up his alley being an anthropologist. While there is the narrator who hasn't traveled physically, but transcends all borders

Amitav Ghosh, the God of Literature.

A moving account of a Bengali family visiting Dhaka in Bangladesh during the times of India’s partition with Bangladesh, Second World War events, and the communal riots in the early 1960s. A thoroughly researched book by one of the greatest of great writers I have ever read. The novel won a Sahitya Akademi Award for its portrayal of the great events of the time.

Splendid and stunning

One of the best books I ever read!
Covers so many themes, and mind blowing linkage of events over a huge time span.This book really needs attention.
Amitav Ghosh is may be most lucid story writer of today's India.

Great story, great story telling. Hats off to Amitav Ghosh

A series of inter-weaving stories transgressing epochs and national borders, moving in and out of imaginations and visions of reality, concludes to finish an amazing tale. It has a pretty good narration and graphic description of almost everything from places to emotions. In particular the story is pretty amazing in itself but the way he unfolds the story makes it even more engrossing. Hats off to Amitav Ghosh.

Memories: Lost and Found

A book that is the perfect amalgamation of memories. Things that we often forget in the maze of life, memories that usually become scattered, all compiled and made into a beautiful book.A must read for all those who have had a childhood full of memories of all variants, Love, lies,happiness and most importantly realization. Splendid work by Amitav Ghosh.

First to review

Worth its Price

I have read the book. One of my friends has got it from Flipkart. These are prompt people. Delivery is within the stipulated time and the product is in fine condition. The book provides great reading especially as the narrative moves back and forth. By the time one finishes reading, one starts thinking- What is the relevance of boundaries in today's world. Overall, a great read.

A Good Read

It was really irritating when even after reading half of the book unable make sense of the time,space and the characters and their inter-relation. Thought of dropping it...didn't do that as it has been awarded with Sahitya academy award (So felt it must have something in it). Ultimately perseverance paid. Now after reading it, i'm feeling like going through it once again.
Its a non-linear narration involving complex web of events that happen in London, Calcutta and Dhaka during pre-partition, World war 2 & riots of 1960s...Explores the idea of boundaries and violence, their impact people....
