    Unusually Good

    Usually I'm not a fan of novels like this. For every SUCH A LONG JOURNEY (not to mention MY FATHER'S EYES, of course) there are a dozen pretentious psychobabble productions. This is worth the time and effort. Maybe because it's set in a differnt time and less navel-gazing society than ours.

    A must read....

    I am an avid reader and found this book hard to put down...from beginning to end this book ensnares you and keep you wanting to read more.....Rohinto Mistry gives the reader humor, sadness, variety and a look at middle class India....totally enjoyable.

    A very absorbing and simple story

    I think this book is Rohington Mistry's best book to date.It tells us the story of a simple Indian family which for all practical purposes could be any Indian Family and it takes us along with the protoganist Gustad Noble and his family on a long journey filled with numerous ups and downs and it also tells us how the protoganist like a lot of us eventually comes to terms with the reality and learns to live with it. Really an exceptional book.
