There is something about train rides. Maybe it's because I HATE flying, maybe it's the beautiful places outside the window, who knows? There is something about riding trains. During my last train ride, I was seated next to a woman who loved to read, so course we began to trade you should read this lists.

And there is nothing better than that.

This was one of the books she recommended. I saw it at a used bookstore in the three volume edition (which was cheaper than the one volume edition), and con
I simply could not put this book down. I could taste, smell and hear India in this mammoth tome. I loved the poetry interspersed in the pages and the extra cleverly written contents pages. This is the best book I have ever read. You will not be wasting your money or your time investing in this treasure chest from Vikram Seth.
Very enjoyable but I could not help reading it in an Indian accent LOL!
I especially appreciated the family tree at the front of the book as this helped me to identify who everyone was.
Looking forward to Parts II and III
took me ages to read this - I read many others in between - but I always wanted to come back to it to finish it.
Too long!!! too many pages on politics which i skipped :D Did not like the ending..Could have been better...
