A Suitable Boy is Vikram Seth's epic love story set in India. Funny and tragic, with engaging, brilliantly observed characters, it is as close as you can get to Dickens for the twentieth century. The story unfolds through four middle class families: the Mehras, Kappoors, Khans, and Chatterjis. Lata Mehra, a university student, is under pressure from her mother to get married. But not to just anyone she happens to fall in love with.

An exquisite experience
I had read A Suitable Boy around 1999 and liked it immensely.The Audible experience made me a part of that world and I sailed along with the amazing performers through the exciting journey. The musical accompaniment and the contemporary film songs were integrated in a seamless flow of the narrative.
I heartily congratulate the actors and actresses for breathing life into the characters matching with my imaginative visuals of their personalities.
kudos to Amazon and BBC for achieving this Herculean task.
