3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not to everyones taste, 8 Aug. 2007
This review is from: A Suitable Boy (Paperback)
Very well written, but way too much of the politics of India! if you dont mind missing out pages then its a good read. It took me a long time to read it, but im glad i did. there are some unexpected turns, but as there are many charactors, it can be hard to keep track. if you are Indian, you should enjoy it, as you can identify with the charactors. but even if you are not, give it a go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 8 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Londonstani (Paperback)
I LOVED this book! the language is fun, i can understand that it might be difficult for some ppl to understand but i think that is the beauty of the book, that it can appeal to the kinds of kids who speak like that. the twists and turns in the book are very surprising, and the end is so unexpected! Mr Malkani is an inspired storyteller! i hope this book is read by the kinds of boys featured in the book, if it is, i can see it promoting a change in them! if u have younger brothers or sons, get them to read this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving, 20 July 2007
This review is from: The Last Empress (Paperback)
The last empress is the single best book to read this year! it carries on The tale of Empress Orchid from the book of the same name, and takes u deeper into the sad history of the Manchu Dynasty and as it crumbles. The politics of The Chinese Empire is discussed alot more in the second book, but it doesnt fail to explore the live of the Empress and the Emperor. Orchid, torn between the good of the Country and the good of her Son makes you believe that she should be the Mother of China. Beautifully written and set in the magnificant Forbidden city amongst the Eunechs and Ladies in waiting the story unfolds as to how women were both the saviors and the fall of the Empire.
