Indian KerouacIts a pretty different sort of novel. This book is more sort of grand thali at an up-scale restaurant.

above averageAn average novel. a Travalogue primerley, than a novel. But the depiction of Guyana and adjacent places done well.One could get the feeling of wild beauty of Guyana, its landscape and culture. Lack of something that take people attach to the story visible. Bhatachary is basically a cricket writer/journalist..afterall he managed to take readers with him all through the Novel. The book is jst above average..

a book like lifeA novel that feels like liquid gold. It captures life. Read it patiently and with an open mind. It is full of surprising observatoins and wisdom. Many lines are like epigrams. Also many jokes! It won the Royal Society of Lit Ondaatje Prize and Hindu Prize. Indians will understand their history.
