A great glimpse into the world of film making and creating cinema from stories. I enjoyed listening to it. While the narrator was very good with the overall rendition, a Tamil native speaker would uave done more justice to bringing alive the Tamil emotions through the right pronunciations of the Tamil lingo peppered across the book. That was the only drawwback.

...being a Mani and Rangan fan, I just loved the book!

Great Listen!

Excellent expansion and follow up to the speech by the author at the Oxford reparations debate. A must listen for everyone who is interested in the history of the Raj!

Awssome, moving and Thought provoking!

This book is a must read. Was heart wrenching at places but really made me reflect deeply and make pledges to make a diiference at home and the workplace.

Excellent book except for the mispronunciations

Excellent book by Darlymple covering intersting, heartwrenching stories across the subcontinent. The narration while does justice to the emotions the author is trying to evoke, was full of unacceptable mispronunciations of some of the poular l ocal words which makes you feel a bit frustrated, when you hear it..for eg. Ramanaya instead of Ramayana. Should've spent some.extra effort to get the narration right.

Too much sarcasm

Overall a good book. However I felt that if the overdose of sarcasm at every corner could've been left out, strictly ticking to facts, observations and opinions, it would've been a better book.

Awesome.rendition!
