    Magnificent!

    I love how Ondaatje ends each chapter with an event but with a recollection or a memory. Passionate like the ocean on a particularly stormy night, intricate like an immaculately woven mughal motif, this is one book I couldnt put down. I have read it thrice and I have been held spell bound by Ondaatje’s tale of love and wistful longing, revealed through the memories of a completely burnt, nameless, faceless man who is called the English patient, because he only knows English.

    Excellence in narration

    The author is quite high on sensitive quotient and it reflects in his empathy to multiple characters. Got hold of this book after seeing the movie and this one doesn't disappoint either. There is a highly poetic quality in ideas and flow of the story, though it is non-linear. Valuable addition to any collection. Really 5 star...

    Magnificent Read

    There is absolutely no doubt about mastery of the writer. This book has a real story. A fancy amalgamation of Drama, story, poetry and philosophy. The reader might feel getting away in first 20 pages or so but once he catches up the rhythm of the writer, you can not put this down.

    The best thing which i like personally is use of very limited number of characters in the book, because of which the reader can relate to them quite easily. the There is absolutely no doubt this book is a booker p...

    The English Patient. A tale of Romance and Tragedy ,

    I saw the movie first which impressed me very much,then i wanted to read the original novel and i was happy to get it on FLIPKART.the way the story is written makes you wonder whether you are dreaming or awake. Its poetic and at the same time a narration. Very few novels are written like this. A must for your english literature library. worth every penny.
    Thanks flipkart for finding the book for me.

    Very good book.

    Well my review here is biased, so stop reading it, might corrupt you.
    I liked it because it portrays:
    1. Pleasure of cheating
    2. Pleasure of pain
    3. Pleasure of being separated from your love.
    4. the way it portray love, without certainties of future, fragile and vulnerable.

    The one world needs to read

    The English patient is a beautiful and classic portrayal of love and war.This is one of those which everyone needs to read.
    Ondaatje has written his work very creatively. The most exceptional part about this book is the choice of characters, the best of them no doubtingly is the English patient. Ondaatje seems to have mastered tragedy but in the end you just might not feel sad. That is how magnificently he wrote.
    I would rate it 4.5/5 because of its story line, perseverance and popularity. T...

    worth a read

    You will be spellbound by this book. The English Patient is one of those classic books that deserve to be on book-shelf of all readers. This book has a complex structure however the author holds you through the plot following the successes and the misgivings of his characters.
