Review

The best writer of his generation, The Times

This novel, so vast and so amiably peopled, is a long, sweet, sleepless pilgrimage to life . . . His novel deserves thousands of long marriages and suitable readers, Guardian

No one, surely, could wish this novel shorter . . . the greatness of the novel, its unassailable truthfulness, owes less to research than to imagination, an instinctive knowledge of the human heart, Observer

Not merely one of the longest novels in English; it may also prove to be the most fecund as well as the most prodigious work of the latter half of [the twentieth] century, The TImes

A quietly monumental novel . . . [Seth] has given that unlikeliest of hybrids, a modest tour de force, TLS

An immensely enjoyable novel which describes with unhurried pace the panorama of India . . . Everything appears familiar to us, yet in fact it is newly minted by a master artist, Hindustan Times

Conceived on a grand scale of the great 19th century novels - War and Peace, Middlemarch - A Suitable Boy grows to match them in breadth and depth . . . [A] massive and magnificent book, Sunday Times

A phenomenon, a prodigy, a marvel of 19th century storytelling in the language of today . . . It is hard to believe that Seth is only one man. He writes with the omniscience and authority of a large, orderly committee of experts on Indian politics, law, medicine, crowd psychology, urban and rural social customs, dress, cuisine, horticulture, funerary rites, cricket and even the technicalities of shoe manufacture, Evening Standard

Twentieth anniversary-edition of Seth's masterly hymn to life and love set against the backdrop of an independent India., THE OBSERVER

Book Description

The 20th-anniversary edition of the bestselling novel by Vikram Seth.
NAMED ONE OF THE BBC'S 100 NOVELS THAT SHAPED OUR WORLD
