The book is easy to follow and provides true insight into Raju’s character without making him seem larger than life, but hi ...

        • Story:
        The language is simple and pleasing, like other RK books. It is perhaps interesting also like other RK books, but it suffers from a major flaw, or at least that is what I think. The incidents and a few characters are COMPLETLY unconvincing and unbelievable.It literally kills one’s interest wh ...

        • Story:
        Technically, The Guide is an advance on the earlier novels: the present and the past are cunningly jumbled to produce an impression of suspense and anticipation. We begin with Raju’s release from prison and Velan’s recognition of a ‘Swami’ in him. The earlier history of R ...

        • Story:
        R.K.Narayan has been best known for putting human emotions in words. In all his books one identifies with each and every character. In this book (which I believe is not as popular as the movie which was based on it) the author has taken us through the life of a child, a man and finally a guide w ...
