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.

Wonderful dramatization of a great book
I had read A Suitable Boy almost 20 years back and has been in one of my top reads which I wanted to read again some time. Came across this dramatized version on Audible and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great performances and flawless direction - simply loved it and also refreshed the memory of this great book.
