Enthralling read!

It is difficult to put in words the sheer engagement I experienced with this read. Amitava Ghosh is quite simply brilliant (such an overused word but in this case, apt). His research is meticulous and it is evident that much hard work has been expended in this. His ability to blend the his learnings into the stories is and its characters is marvellous.

For those who have read the first 2 parts of the Ibis Trilogy (Sea of Poppies, River of Smoke), this book brings it all together. [If you ha...

Great value for money

I received the book within 3 days of ordering. Excellent delivery, as always.

The book was perfect except for the corners of the hardcover which were a bit smeared. The page quality was a bit disappointing for a hardcover. Although, at 500 Rs, you can't ask for better than this.

The font size and the margins make sure that reading is a very pleasurable experience. The book itself is very immersing.

Overall, a good buy at this price.

Yes, I do accept that the book was good in parts

Yes, I do accept that the book was good in parts.When i first read 'the Sea of Poppies', i was shocked to know about the brutality of legal workers employed in Ghazipur Opium factory.I was startled to learn how men can think of totally sabotaging a woman's life and yet build a shrine to cover up the mess. Moreover the usage of desi language all across the book had made it even more alluring. On the flip side, Amitav introduced too many bollywood style action settings which made it look forced...

Flood of Fire - part 3 of the Ibis trilogy

Few other authors have such skill and control over both language and content as Amitav Ghosh. His third installment of the Ibis trilogy only reinstates my belief in his abilities.

The book continues with the story of the motley group of people who are linked together through their shared experiences on the schooner Ibis. Specifically, four parallel stories run together and a few other characters are introduced. The great thing with his narrative is his lucid descriptions of the scene and the...

Flood of fire

Another enchanting and captivating novel from Amitava Ghosh. The IBIS trilogy has been one of the best books I have read. The amount of research and the way the story has been told is awesome. Infact while reading this novel I was transported to that era, the early 1800 India and south east asia. Excellent.
