Nigel Fernandes "Enchanting". Then again, "enchanting" applies to everything R. K. Narayan wrote.
Shreyash Devkar nostalgic ... the book reminds of good old days in India ... the simplicity of life those days ...
Jayadev It is another world in Itself , a simply beautiful ,fun filled universe , that you will enjoy having stumbled upon
Ritvij Tiwari Fascinating! How an author bring out such stories from our day to day lives.
Snehil Sinha Our everyday lives are no less than a story. The stories here are a proof of this fact. The innocence and the simplicity of these stories will forever etch them in your hearts. A timeless classic, a bedtime storybook, a moral science lesson and of course an unforgettable piece.
Abhinav Athreya I would say 'page-turner ':)

I've read & re-read the book multiple times, and seen the television episodes as well and on each occasion, I've found a new reason to fall in love with Malgudi days. This definitely is an ageless beauty !
