I took a chance to buy a first attempt of an unknown author. But the title and the cover design attracted me as also the excerpt. As a first attempt, it is superb. I do not have an iota of doubt that the protagonist is the author himself, and when he describes "Kalu", he writes about self. However, there are places where the author could restrain himself - he could avoid the detail description of a new game, long chapters on sex, repeated attempt to establish antithetic characteristics of his parents, etc. Although he almost successfully establish his father as a villain in the novel, he fails to convey that it is his father's grit and wish (of sending his children to quality English Schools), which resulted into the becoming of a not-so-extraordinary Ashim Choudhury into an English Fiction Writer. His father deserved a much more in-depth analysis of his characteristics.
The sergeants son Hero is an artistic boy Called "kalu". u can related with hero, kalu definitely going to touch ur hurt,every small feeling is explained in a very dramatic and touching way..... Author very charmingly describes every things........i personally like it very my.......all the best .....everyone should read it
As reviewed, Nostalgic & tender. Clearly depicts those days of a simple living life.
Characters are so enlightened, can not stop reading in half-way until you finish the whole story.
Though I am yet to finish it, I recommend this is a must read to calm the texture in you and this novel indeed justifies the tenderness.
superb....it was really wonderful and significantly had enriched the culture of indian writing in english...... because after chetan bhagat everybody started to publish a trash but this was really great....bringing out an ace debut novel.
