This book was extraordinarily well done. It had everything: vivid characters, culture clash, suspense, humor, and superb writing. I discovered it on an underrated list of literature in the New York Review of Books and decided to give it a chance. The Siege of Krishnapur is a classic that has been overlooked.

Fran Wilkins This is a truly splendid novel. It has a large cast of characters who are vividly portrayed by the author. I discovered the book in a list of noteworthy literature that has been overlooked. It is solidly done including the culture clash between the British and the locals during the Victorian era in a remote outpost in India.
