Recommends it for: everyone interested in the history of our times
I found this book fascinating on many levels.

It was very interesting to read about that very painful period of Indian history known as the period of the partition. The persons involved were all larger than life, the last Vice Roy of England, his incredible wife, Nehru and of course Ghandi, just to mention a few.

If there were way to talk to those that have preceded us it would be most interesting to know what Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, thinks about the current problems of his country.

Un roman intéressant pour mieux comprendre comment s'est déroulée la transition vers l'indépendance de l'Inde, ex-colonie britannique, sur fond de l'histoire d'amour entre Nehru et Lady Mountbatten, épisode qui demeure très connu en Inde. Quelques longueurs parfois mais à recommander tout de même.
