    One of Amitav Ghosh's best books I would say The setting of the book is in the 'Sundarbans' in Eastern India– a vast forest in the coastal region of the Bay of Bengal and considered one of the natural wonders of the world There is not much of a story as such in the novel but there are excellent characters and visual depictions of the Sun

    this guy is such a terrible writer I don't know why I bother Full review once I finish this abominable page turnerOK done I really can't bear Gosh's style the dialogue is completely implausible with nearly every character speaking as though they're declaiming to the wind He has an unnecessarily high adjective count and he just generally annoys me On the upside this book does some nice stuff with structure pull
