The River

by AlmaD on Aug 15, 2009

This is a beautifully written book, almost perfectly written, and the story is subtle though riveting. I would recommend it to any westerner who loves India or wants to go there. Although Jean Renoir made a good movie from this book, in collaboration with the author, I enjoyed the book more.
