The room on the roof

By: | Jun 28, 2012 05:58 AM

The Room on The Roof is the first novel by Ruskin Bond . It is the story of Rusty who is a 16 year old boy. After his parents died he was living with his English Guardian. He was quite unhappy with the ruthless ways and strict rules of his Guardian and decides to break-free one day. So he goes to nearby market and makes many friends and starts living there.

He discovers life is not that easy and he has to face a number of challenges that are waiting for him Ruskin Bond in his first venture keeps people captivated from the very first page till the last one through the simplicity in his writing and spontaneity.

He has so well represented every detail that it engages the reader very well and proves to be a complete page-turner. The reader will feel the pain of Rusty and laugh at the light-hearted humor. The book summons up all the traits of human life well ranging from adolescence, love, friendship to losing your loved ones and agonies of life.

Ruskin has a certain poetic style of writing. He chooses words carefully and describes every detail appropriately. The marked style of writing is note worthy when the boy gets into the dilemma of living India and going to England. Ruskin uses many adjectives to support his writing that make his work beautiful and graceful to read.

He also remarkably shows in the novel, how some strangers can become part and parcel of one’s life by showing a little tenderness and warmth. Rusty, the protagonist in the novel underwent same state and made some friends for lifetime. The novel is the winner of John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize and is certainly a pleasure to read.
