    Immersive virtual reality!

    To me, Sea of Poppies is the best work of fiction that Amitav Ghosh has ever produced, and that's saying something!

    The descriptions of people and places sucks one in and refuses to let go. The imagery that Ghosh paints is breathtaking, and in spite of rich detail, a well defined plot keeps one gripped almost as effectively as a thriller does.

    A single negative: as the first part of a trilogy, the story ends rather abruptly (how I hate thee JK Rowling, for making book series fashionable, ...

    Must read book - A Literary masterpiece

    This book is a literary masterpiece.I read this book a long time ago. I enjoyed it. I would argue that this book is certainly not for you if you like Chetan Bhagat.This is a very unique novel,one of its kind which only Amitav Ghosh can write.Not everyone will understand.It talks a lot about the East India company and about a history that few of us would have heard of.Its very surprising to hear that Opium was cultivates in large quantities in India and that some communities very actively inv...

    A journey through the life of characters

    Another good work by Mr. Ghosh. He is a master in creating characters and you get so involved with them that you want to know what their future holds. However, it will take you the first 100 or so pages to get used to the language used by the author and also to know the characters of the story. But I think its pretty reasonable considering the fact that this is the first part of 'Ibis' trilogy. It is not the usual 'juicy' fiction but will still keep you engrossed. A must have for the fans of...

    Impressive, Addictive and Engrossing Story

    Amitav Ghosh has done a huge amount of research into the background of life 200 years ago in India. This is a truly engrossing historical novel that starts out in India of the 1830s, against the background of the opium trade between the East India Co. and China.The first part of a trilogy, the novel tells the story of how a variety of people come to find themselves on a ship, the IBIS, and of the events on board just as it is starting out on its voyage.But is more than that.Ghosh brings the I...

    Simply a Classic

    What a fantastic master piece by Amitav Ghosh as always. Dont bother to read reviews, just grab the series of Ibis if u are fascinating with historical fiction. What a superb story teller, feels like I can see everyone - Neel the Zaminder, Dipti an exceptional village beauty etc..
