மோகமுள் பற்றிப் பொதுவாக அது நல்லதோர் நாவல், மிகவும் சிறப்பாக அமைந்துவிட்ட ஒரு உன்னதமான சிருஷ்டி, ஜானகிராமனின் மிகச்சிறந்த முயற்சி என்று சொல்வதற்கு மேல் விரிவாக எதுவும் சொல்ல வேண்டும் என்று எனக்குத் தோன்றவில்லை. குணசித்திரங்களும் சந்தர்ப்பச் சுழ்நிலைகளும் சம்பவங்களும் களன்களும் மிகவும் சிறப்பாக உருவாகியுள்ளன. சங்கீத விஷயத்தின் மூலம் நாவலில் ஏற்படுகிற ஒரு ஆழம் உண்மையானதாக, ...more

Spectacular is the word! Even without much knowledge about formal classical music, I could read layers of meaning and depth through Thi.Ja's amazing portrayal and narration in this novel. It flows smoothly like the river Cauvery of yore. All characters were very memorable, the incidents and feelings very believable, the net result very wonderful.

A real take on lust. A normal Tamil saying goes like this: The lust remains just for thirty days. But in this novel Janakiraman questions that. Lust can remain even for years.

What to say?Loved it.

Okay.The story is a very simple one.A boy who is who come to study in collage away from home, a son of a singer, a passionate youngster , and he does with his life.It all becomes more sensible ,complicated and difficult when he meets his past love and passion-a past that he did dare to become involved with. There is no nothingness in this story. It is a youthful, well handled,realistic story of young boy who is struggling between his passion,love,boyish feelings and society

No spoilers.
I read this book in 90's during my college days.
It took me sometime (first 200 pages read) to get used to the period mentioned in this book (1930/1940). Next 400 pages I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. In fact when it was near to end, I wanted this book as a never ending one.
It's a wonderful read.
And no "they lived happily ever after" ending :). It just covers a period of life incidents of the main characters....
Highly recommended.

மனதிற்கு மிக நெருக்கமான நாவல், படித்துவிட்டு உடனே கடந்து செல்ல முடியவில்லை, இந்த படைப்பில் தான் எவ்வளவு நல்ல மனிதர்கள்!!! படித்த அனைவரையும் அவர் அவரது வாழ்கையை வேறு பார்வையில் பார்க்க வைக்கும் இந்த நாவல்... ஒவ்வொரு பாத்திரத்திலும் எப்படியோ நம்மை நாம் அறியாமலேயே பொருத்தி பார்க்க வைத்துவிடும்... இனி நிஜ வாழ்வில் இந்த கதாபத்திரங்களின் பெயரை கேட்டால் நம்மால் இந்த நாவல் மாந்தர்களை நினைக்காமல் கடக்கமுடியாது.

I liked the way Thi.Jaa described Kumbakonam. I felt the same way when I visited Kumbakonam, Swamimalai and Mayuram the first time. I did watch the movie based on this novel. I liked the novel better.
I have read few books of tamil authors other than Sujatha/Lakshmi. Janakiraman brings the 50s and 60s neatly, I believe.

Well written book.
One of the best books I have ever read.
This book portrays the period very well.
Yamuna characters’ wittiness in conversation will lure the reader.
I like the way it ended happily.

Reading this book after a gap of 7 years helped me appreciate the finer details which I had missed out the first time for the want of 'age'. The landscape and soundscape of Tanjore-Kumbakonam of the yore will continue to visit me in my dreams for some weeks to come.

An excellent novel! It was long pending read from my side, yesterday took it and read it in one shot.
great detailing and admiring narration, i have read some of Thi Ja's books earlier like "Amma Vanthal", but this one stands tall. A must read!
