I wish I had read this book before I read all the others by Amitav Ghosh It has all the characteristics one has come to expect of an Amitacv Ghosh novel deep research great narration with such level of detail that it feels like an impressionist painting a significant item or thought The Life of Louis Pasteur in this case that binds all the main characters who travel through time on their own paths which Ghosh conspires to ensure cross during some time in the story and connections to Bengal and the positive impact that it has had thanks to the prosperity of Burma I now see where all this began and can only marvel at how he has successfully developed each of these themes in his subseuent works There is mention of Ronald Ross and his association with Calcutta which is the central theme of The Calcutta Chromosome The reference to Balaram Bose's father who made his fortune thanks to his connections with the timber trade in Burma is the central theme of The Glass Palace one of my favourite novels and the description of Naokhali and the immigrants from Burma who consciously keep their own uaint traditions and language all seem like preliminary research for his subseuent works Like all his other works this one too shows off his immense ability to research arcane topics and find relevance for them in the novel's characters The history of cotton and weaving becomes central to Shombhu Debnath and phrenology to Balaram Bose I can see why my friend Srikanth Mallavarapu who teaches English in Roanoke Virginia is so interested in Amitav Ghosh's works As with all his other works what stands out is his ability to describe in great detail the characters and the setting almost like a screenplay The attention to detail never ceases to amaze Even simple descriptions of Balaram Bose's house and how it looks with the light filtering through coconut palms and lemon trees is so vivid that even someone like me with no creative genes can visualise it It may seem to many readers to be uite superfluous since it does not add much to the plot or the story line but perhaps that is the beauty of a classical style of writing that many of us grew up reading Those of us who have been lucky to live amongst coconut palms and lemon trees will immediately recall the effect that these trees which are so different from each other work nicely together so that the tall palms and the short lemon tree take the edge of the harsh sun and torrential rain If one was to look for meaning the trees could be symbolising Bhudeb Roy and Balaram Bose or perhaps it is just a red herring for the readers planted there by Ghosh in a moment of mischief The influence of his time in Egypt is evident here with colloual Arabic phrases thrown in when Zindi and her friends exclaim Unlike many other authors these phrases seem be in the right place and keep with the flow of the story This is perhaps taken too far in The Sea of Poppies where the use of Anglo Indian phrases is overdone I cannot but agree with Srikanth's characterization of Ghosh as an ambitious author who surrounds himself with his brilliant ideas and characters but fails to pick on one central theme or set of characters to develop Everytime one reads one of his novels one feels like one is reading the Mahabharatha with several characters each playing the central character in a sub plot somewhere while the main characters disappear for a while to the background There is a set of themes and ideas in this work that develop into central themes in subseuent novels If I ever met Amitav Ghosh I would suggest that he reads The Malgudi Days a few times a year RK Narayan created a number of characters and each of them had a central role in a story that had a single plot that ensured that it was easy reading while at the same time allowed for each of those stories and characters to be developed over time beyond Malgudi While it begins in a manner that shows off all of Ghosh's strengths it also highlights what I think is one of his weaknesses the ability to finish the novel in the same enthusiastic way that he begins like setting off on a great adventure only to stop when the car runs out of fuel in the middle of nowhere To a simpleton like me it is a very tame ending that Alu returns to India with Zindi and Boss Karthamma dies of a heart attack and Jyoti Das deserts the civil service to work with his uncle in Germany Maybe the ending was an offering from Ghosh to the critics for them to admire and analyse find meaning and feel good about the emperor's new clothes I do like dessert and I feel as if I have been cheated out of it after being served a delicious meal Ghosh's herbal tea just does not cut it for me The gratitutous sex between Parboti and Shombhu the unlikeliest of individuals is another completely avoidable feature of his novels like the sorbet between courses in a pretentious restaurant

The Circle of ReasonLy accused of terrorism Alu flees his home traveling through Bombay to the Persian Gulf to North Africa with a bird watching policeman in pursu. I think one star is too much for this book I did not find the point All the characters are mentally ill even though the author tries to pass them as normal I was hoping to at least learn something from the setting and situations But the characters are so outrageously crazy that I cannot trust any of the situations or the background setting Don't waste your time
