    MOBI A Suitable Boy MOBI Æ A Suitable PDF \ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ suitable epub, A Suitable ebok, A Suitable Boy KindleAfter about page 200 I realised this was like eating Turkish Delight morning noon and night and my spiritual teeth were beginning to dissolve under a tide of sickliness which didn't ever let up All these characters are so unbearably cute even the less nice ones If post independent India was crossed with Bambi it would be Vikram Seth's endless gurgling prose So I stopped reading and drove several three inch nails into my head and I've been all right since then

    MOBI A Suitable Boy MOBI Æ A Suitable PDF \ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ suitable epub, A Suitable ebok, A Suitable Boy KindleI know some GR’ers didn’t really cotton on to the style of this book And maybe it was because I read this while on vacation in India itself but wow Just WOW It’s a fucking long book—1500 pages And every single page was worth the time I spent on it and If Midnight’s Children is India’s One Hundred Years of Solitude then A Suitable Boy must be its War and Peace It’s got the same melding of personal lives seen in amidst great national events Instead of the romance of Natasha and Pierre it’s that of Lata and her three suitors Instead of the war with France we have the post Independence and post Partition politics of a nation searching for an identity And instead of descriptions of war we get exchanges of heated debate on the floor of the state parliament and the passin

    MOBI A Suitable Boy MOBI Æ A Suitable PDF \ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ suitable epub, A Suitable ebok, A Suitable Boy KindleSpoiler alertI finally finished reading A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth For some reason I used to avoid picking it up and kept putting it off I suppose it was mainly the size it’s one thick book approximately 1500 pages but I also think it had to do with this misconception I had that it would be a tough read that Seth’s writing would be pompous and saturated with flowery descriptions of ri

    MOBI A Suitable Boy MOBI Æ A Suitable PDF \ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ suitable epub, A Suitable ebok, A Suitable Boy KindleI don't even know where to begin gushing about this one so panoramic is its scope and so delightful its literary charms Vikram Seth's 800000 word magnum opus is lengthier than War and Peace and compulsively readable than a well paced soap opera It is an event in one's life I call it a soap opera because fundamentally the plot is a family drama revolving around the wooers of its principal character Lata Mehra Set in the early 1950s and written with a forceful simplicity akin to R K Narayan it covers 18 months in the entwined lives of four families the Mehras Kapoors Chatterjis and Khans and through these characters proffers an intricate peek into a most fascinating and neglected period in Indian history It is an uncertain era; the subcontinent has been Partitioned on religious grounds and India is making its wobbly transition from feudalism to democracy The First Great General Elections are to be held i

    MOBI A Suitable Boy MOBI Æ A Suitable PDF \ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ suitable epub, A Suitable ebok, A Suitable Boy Kindle A Suitable Boy describes a year in the life of the fledgling Indian democracy indirectly told through the experiences of four connected families and a litany of supporting characters who due to the diversity of their occupations and social positions are able to explore various facets – political legal social cultural religious artistic – of the India of this period and the clash of its opposing cultural forces traditional versus modern values religion versus secularism Hinduism versus Islam Eastern versus Western culture and democracy versus serfdom to name a few The titular story concerning Mrs Mehra’s search for a husband for her daughter Lata though just one of many stories that the novel weaves together stands out due to what it reveals about the norms and cultural prejudices of the time We see in Lata an intelligent young woman who has received a modern education but is pressured by family and cultural expectations to take on a tradition
