        When I first picked up the book, I realised that it was going to be a slow and steady cruising for me.But the novel , as such, picks up pace from the very start, you realise it much later, when ghosh gets into philosohical musings of his own.It s interesting to note that all though the novel you ...

        This is a good and worth reading novel in which the author has covered a wide range of themes and dealt with multiple subjects at once. the novel is typically brilliant in the psychoanalytic element and shows a careful and neat workmanship in this regard. it examines the insidious folds of the h ...

        • Story:
        Amitav Ghosh’s Shadow Lines was published in 1988, four years after the sectarian violence that shook New Delhi in the aftermath of the Prime minister, Indira Gandhi’s assassination. The narrative technique is fragmentary and an accumulation of the narrator’s experiences in the form of memori ...

        • Story:
        Amitav Ghosh’s The Shadow Lines deals with political freedom in the modern world, nationalism and the shadow lines we people draw between us and nations. The line we have drawn is an absurd illusion. It is also a source of terrifying violence like a partition of India into Pakistan and Hin ...

        I owe a lot to Amitav Ghosh and The Shadow Lines. Being the first Indian English author and the first book in English written by an Indian respectively, they led me on to read many other titles by many other Indian authors, each of which I thoroughly enjoyed reading. I guess I am a regular so ...

        The Shadow Lines is a wonderfully written text, and I could appreciate the use of language by the author. The plot has been well presented and everything has been tied very nicely. Stylistically, it is a very beautiful text. Thematically, the novel seems to be saying so many different things. ...
