  • Description
    In a crumbling, isolated house at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga in the Himalayas lives an embittered judge who wants only to retire in peace, when his orphaned granddaughter, Sai, arrives on his doorstep. The judge's cook watches over her distractedly, for his thoughts are often on his son, Biju, who is hopscotching from one gritty New York restaurant to another. Kiran Desai's brilliant novel, published to huge acclaim, is a story of joy and despair. Her characters face numerous choices that majestically illuminate the consequences of colonialism as it collides with the modern world.

    Nothing to say...

    I am just speechless after reading this book. And the reception of Man-Booker Award speaks for itself. Only I would like to quote the comment by India Today- "A delightful original book, a triumph of the storyteller's art, nuanced, and even worthy of the most overworked term: luminous."

    Again flipkart rocked---

    Cash on delivery, Packing, Delivery time. All 5 on 5 star.

    Read to get sleepy

    It is no doubt a good book. But yes, it isn't really a page turner. In fact at times, it drags on and on and you just want it to end, this happens in the middle phrase. The idea behind the book is good but the portrayal can at times give you a headache. This isn't one of the books that make you go "Ahh..wow..I really read a good book!" once you finish reading it, and neither does it make you wish it never ended. You're gonna be glad it ended.

    Great Ending

    Its got very good english and very old style writing. the book is a pure pleasure to read. the starting is slow and rustic but then the book builds pace and is very very good. its one of the best books by an indian author and really will hold its own. vivid descriptions.

    catch a beautiful interview with the author here on world book club by the bbc if youre unsure about buying the book! the book is pure awesomeness btw!

    Decent product

    Anita Desai is not an Indian, always remember. Actually this sort of people always tends to became an English keeping themselves to making English people happy. Novel is good but not for everyone.

    the inheritance of loss by Kiran Desai

    it provides a lot of support and enthusiasm for the readers.The good thing is readers can also the other books written by the same author which is helpful for the researchers. We get all fiction and non-fictions books which means we can choose the book to our interest and for common readers we can get good stories in good discounts. It provides books in all kind of fields i.e for political social,religious,etc.And even children books are available which is a good advantage of practice reading...

    Epitome of melancholy summed up in a book

    A great style of writing, superb vocab. Excellent characters and backdrop. Everything is nice about the book apart from the fact that this book will be in your mind for several days together making you feel depressed and sad for a long time. Well, such is the power in the writing by Kiran Desai.
