Let the monkey weave a story … “Red Earth and Pouring Rain” by Vikram Chandra


Red Earth and Pouring RainRed Earth and Pouring Rain by Vikram Chandra
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book grew on me. Aside from a very nice portrayal of Indian culture and world view, the story telling is beautiful. The intricacies of the story line and development of narratives within other narratives is impressive and deep.

I give it four stars as sometimes it gets a bit slow moving and I would not categorize this book as a fast paced or an easy read.

The story of Abhay did not make sense for me until the very end and I believe the narrative would do fine without it and not suffer for it. At the end, however, it was tied in beautifully.

Overall, it is an enjoyable and unusual book and contains some very beautiful imagery and quotes.
