River of Smoke

I read Sea of Poppies, my first Amitav Ghosh and I was completely in love. With everything about the book - the cover, the writing, the theme. I couldn't wait for the next book in the series. And now that it's released, I got it. Yeah. I ordered it on Flipkart.com and it's already sitting on my bedside table. Waiting to be read. But before that, I want to read the Sea of Poppies again. It really is that good. 

(And in the interim between book 1 and book 2 of the Ibis trilogy I got  me a few Mr. AG's books.The Shadow Lines I am still struggling with, not because it's not good but I am getting just too Internet-crazy-busy.)

(Am I jealous of Nabila because she has a signed copy of Sea of Poppies and met the man at a book reading in Bangalore. Damn!)

(Oh, the cover of the book is fabulous.)

(Sigh! Can't wait to start reading.)

If you want to read Mr. AG's interview with flipkart, here it is.


  1. You must read 'The Hungry Tide' and 'The Glass Palace'. 2 of my favourites!

  2. All the books in that picture - i am proud owner of them. Read all except the Shadow Lines which is WIP :D


I'd love to hear from you
