This novel is not as funny as some of Sutcliffes. It's basically about a couple (young man and young woman) who go on a long trip to India. They fall out and after a while go their separate ways. The novel will appeal to anyone who has made such a trip and anyone who wants to know what such an excursion might be like. There are a few funny incidents in the story but there is also considerable bitterness on the part of the male protagonist and India is presented "warts and all", not as some romantic destination.
