Another amazing book by Nihal de Silva. The language is simple which means you can whiz through the book in a day. However, the plot is exciting- to think that there's an element of truth in the story.

The story unveils the atrocity of ragging in local universities and the reason behind it. It reveals how intensely students are involved in politics in these institutions. It discloses a conspiracy organised by university students that is so complex, bloody, brutal, grand and unimaginable that mig

I've been going on a Sri lankan literature bender these past few months and this is the first book by Nihal De Silva that I got my hands on. Admittedly, I probably should have read his 'Road From Elephant Pass' first but still.

It was the cover and the title which first attracted me. 'Giniralla' being a word that is translated into fire wave. 'Gini' meaning fire and 'Ralla' meaning wave. Or more in keeping with what the book describes, a tsunami of fire.

The story is amazing. Detailing a Sri Lanka
Cover Gushing Worthiness: The image on my cover is this one The Giniralla Conspiracy ; Five Journals of Sujatha Mallika by Nihal de Silva, but when I typed in the isbn number of my copy of The Giniralla Conspiracy this edition appeared with no cover. No matter though, I'll still gush about the cover anyways!

The plot moves along relatively quickly and the ending is not as predictable as one would think, so overall its an interesting read. Not too many unexplained cultural references, so its great for any audience. The first book of this author, that I am reading.
I think if I had actually gone to local University as an internal student I would better appreciate all the nuances of the details he provides. But I would'nt necessarily agree with the Nancy Drew like persona he gives to Sujatha Malika, jo

I enjoyed each words in this book, since i went through same ragging conditions in my university. The book tends to reflect the reality of student unions & political involvements in university life at latter parts. Some of the descriptions remind me characters whom i really met in university life & wondering they may true!!
I suggest to everyone who studied in universities in Sri Lanka except Jaffna & Eastern must read this to get answers for several questions!!
It had its moments but over sensational.
