The City of Devi: A Novel based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
An original premise and intriguing adventure. This well realized tale holds the reader's attention throughout the misadventures of it's characters. The characters themselves, unfortunately, are not written in such a way as to compel much compassion for them. Their experiences, though, are fully believable and you do root for their success in overcoming the many horrifying obstacles in their path. Mumbai is totally recognizable and descriptions of it's chaos and impending destruction are vivid. A good read for those who like dystopian lit.
I was chuffed to find a signed copy of Manil Suri's book at the Jaipur Literary Festival. Chuffed because his first was actually good, his second was not so good but I trusted him to get his groove back with the last of his triumvirate. I am surprised by the raving jacket cover endorsements. This is a boring book. There is no character development. The story has no coherence. It is a bad book. Very bad book. When I begin to look at how many pages I have left to finish a book ( not in a good way) while into ten pages of a book, is bad. Manil Suri, you need to re-visit your days of "vishu" - this is the last book from you that I spend money on.
