5.0 out of 5 stars A book to enjoy, 20 Jun. 2012

This review is from: Freedom of the Monsoon (Paperback)
Freedom of the Monsoon follows the lives of four friends, Dev, Pooja, Amit and Sunil connecting them with the people who enter their communities in the period 1942 to 1947. The beginning is set in Gujerat, India but the story moves to Simla and Bombay. Rakesh, a freedom fighter, does not want his brother Dev to be involved in the struggle as one of them needs to look after the family. However, Dev's life, and necessarily, that of his friends, becomes embroiled in the story of India. He loves Pooja who has much pain to contend with in her life. Amit is both disappointed and uplifted in his relationships with the rulers. Sunil faces hardship through the circumstances of his beloved Neha.
This book is very readable, the characters are easily identified with, and their lives are cleverly linked - with each other, and also with the greater political story of India and the struggle for freedom from the Raj. The plot carries the reader along most enjoyably. Five stars for story-telling!
