The Shadow Lines
Aug 6, 2012
Easily his best workI 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'.

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.

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

Worth its PriceI 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 ReadIt 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.
