Read it years ago, took some reading but was worth it in the end! Spent two weeks lying by a pool, in the sunshine reading it. Lovely.

I loved reading it - it inspired us to cook wonderful Indian food yummmmmmm!

Its one of those books that stays with you I think. Enjoy it!

This is without question my favourite book. Very narrative. Lots of short chapters so you are constantly driven on. I reach a different conclusion about the ending every time.

However, it does cause you to abandon everytihng and everyone while you read it.

I read it years ago and it was fantastic. Like a big soap opera. Really good characters, excellent story, brilliant writing. One of my top books ever
