    Shortlisted for The Economist Crossword Book Award and the Man Asian Literary Prize. A rich and entertaining read - Outlook

    September 1838, A storm blows up on the Indian Ocean and three ships-the Ibis, the Anahita and the Redruthand those aboard are caught in the whirlwind. River of Smoke follows the fortunes of these men and women to the crowded harbor's of China where they struggle to cope with their losses-and, for a few, unimaginable freedoms-in the alleys and teeming waterways of nineteenth-century Canton. Written on the grand scale of a historical epic, River of Smoke, book two in the Ibis trilogy, will be heralded as a masterpiece of twenty-first-century literature.

    Great read but pay attention

    This is a good book. Let me say that from the start. I read Sea of Poppies and I loved it. I loved it because it was engaging and filled with plot and twists and turns.

    If that book is hot, then this one is thanda. There is less of plot and a lot of deliberation mostly on the philosophical aspects of trade. In between are (potentially) useful snippets on botany and painting and Amitav creates this illusion of Canton as the perfect city to be in in the 1800's before the Opium War.

    The first ...

    All Bound for Canton!

    River of Smoke is a cultural bonanza where people from different walks of life and varied nationalities come together to from a whole to create an amazing reading fiesta cultural quirks.

    On the Opium Trail

    'River of smoke' is the second installment of the fabulous Ibis trilogy by Amitav Ghosh.

Although the Ibis plays less of a role here than it did in the 'Sea of Poppies' much of the same cast of characters exist and are joined by a few more.

    The book starts with the storm that ended the first book with Neel and Ah Fath escaping the Ibis under cover of the storm and eventually makin...

    Does the job

    Cover quality is poor. Though it is a genuine Penguin product but the cover of the book is very fragile and made up of ordinary paper only.
