5.0 out of 5 stars What a great story, and so beautifully told!, 14 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Tiger Hills (Hardcover)
Tiger Hills is a sweeping multi-generational epic narrative spanning the 19th and 20th centuries and takes us through the lives of the three main protagonists Devi, Devanna and Machu, with an extensive supporting cast each a minor character in their own right; my personal favorite is Tayi.

The evocative imagery of the opening chapter transported me to the lush landscape of Coorg in southern India, where I stayed through the end of the novel and lingered long after. The plot is well paced, and the richly drawn characters gradually reveal themselves over the course of the novel. Although the story is set in a particular time and place, the themes of rootedness, love, loss, choices and their consequences that we encounter in the book are universal in scope.

This is an excellent book, exceptionally well written with a tight narrative structure and evocative fluid prose. Fans of historical fiction will fully recognize the time and effort invested by the author on extensive research for the period setting of the novel.

A must read for anyone who appreciates great prose and loves a well told story.
