"I am here. All yours. In this moment. With no past, and an unknown future. I am here, with you, right now."

"Yes....", I had no clue where this was going.

"You, the keeper of my soul", she was looking straight into me now with her sharp, honest, and gullible eyes.


"Will you marry me?"


My heart stopped for an eternity.


I realized: my desire to own her, was no longer awake.

The Eyes that Drowned Uyuni is a short and captivating read. The narration beautifully swings between the present and past of Parag, of how he lost his beloved wife Mriga and how he had won her.

Something seems to be going on with Parag, he believes he has a huge back tattoo, or gashes on his back. When he looks in the mirror though nothing is there.

The daughter, Riyah, seems swe

A beautiful, poetic, and intriguing tale that deals with the essence of what love is. Personal love of many forms—between man and woman, father and child, and teacher and student, are explored along with another level of love—prevailing social/political structures versus a new paradigm that respects individual dignity and equality. The author’s admiration of purity in all human relationships is well translated into struggles to overcome mental and emotional boundaries, and eventually finds the u ...more

The eyes that drowned Uyuni is a short and captivating read. The narration beautifully swings between the present and past of Parag, of how he lost his beloved wife Mriga and how he had won her. The portions expressing Parag's love for his child tugs at your heartstrings. I also loved the way the author brought out the intimacy between Parag and Mriga without getting into too much details. On the contrary, with its enigmatic end, this paranormal romance, or so I believe, had me reading it twice ...more

Disclaimer: I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway. c:

This is a beautiful novella, poetic and passionate. The story is lush, tragic and moving; the characters haunting and richly described.

Unfortunately it suffers from a huge lack of editing. Confused verbs and adjectives, typos, ambiguous phrasing... Because of it's many language errors, The Eyes that Drowned Uyuni feels unfinished, like an early draft. Chopra's book needs the polishing of a good editor to really shine.

Disclaimer - this was a Goodreads giveaway.

The Eyes may have drowned Uyuni, but Chopra's words drowned me. It seemed like he picked every word and even every space with such care, it was a form of poetry.

Though a timeline shift was abrupt enough to be a bit confusing at first, I was able to catch up quickly. (One thing...why the cliff hanger?)

I will definitely be doing a re-read - I feel that many nuances can be picked up by a multiple read.

A poetic story of extreme love, and its consequences. Has an almost Tarantino-esque plot switching style, which is technically difficult to execute, but done well here.
