This review is from: The Far Pavilions (Paperback)
Due to the book's size and the fact that I'd never been very interested in India, I'd been putting off reading The Far Pavilions for some time(my Mum had bought it for me at a boot fair as she'd loved it). However it is now on my mental list of all time favourite books. I absolutely loved every page of it. As well as having a fabulous fabulous story/characters etc (many parts of which are based on real life) I feel I've learnt so much about a culture that had originally been a total mystery to me. A must read if ever there was one! I'd give it more stars if I could!

A really great read, I took it on a two week holiday and finished it on the flight coming home(it is nearly a thousand pages!!) Loads of characters to remember, if like me your memory is not what it used to be, it's worth making a note of the page no. of which each character is introduced, you can then go back and refresh when he/she is re-mentioned.
