I think Arundhati Roy gave it all to that book...thats why till date she hasnt come out with her next book... Big smile but I have heard she is working on it now!!

I read Kiran Desai's " A loss of inheritance " recently... she writes well but unlike GOST..her plot doesnt have the tightness...and the end is left hanging very loose... Confused

I am also reading Vikram Chandra's " Sacred games" ...it is like an RGV movie plot but better because u dont have to see RGV's interpretation of it...its a must for all Bombay and Bollywood lovers...ekdum jhakaas! Big smile

I started Vikram Seth's " A suitable Boy " around November last year...I am still lurking around the 800th page or so...ppl who have read it can u advise what is the best way to hold the mammoth book for someone who likes reading lying in bed???Tongue


forget it tallyho...suitable boy is one book that cannot be held while lying in bed.  you can do what i did. put the book on your pillow and lie on your stomach and read it!!!LOLLOL

have you read vikram seth's
The Golden Gate: A Novel in Verse.  that is fav. !! and you can read it lying down....

 will try doing that !!! thanks..."The golden gate" will have to wait...lemme finsih  "A Suitable Boy" first!!Big smile

I found it too long as well. Not satisfied as I had heard many good things about it and it ended up being "much ado about nothing".

I agree with you Jaya.  I rarely have trouble completing any book.  A suitable boy was with me for months and find it too verbose. 
It is a good book but would pick Golden gate much more.

The art of motorcycle maintnance is another of my favorite books, I forgot to add. I had a little difficulty finishing that one also, but it left its mark at the end of it none the less. Smile Great book!
