    Amrit is a youngish Calcutta journalist a non religious Sikh sent on an assignment to the far reaches of India a lawless place where Burma China and India lose definition in a murky no man’s land Amrit is trying to track down the story behind a photograph of a woman held captive by a terrorist group The ultimate focus though is on the mysterious Malik leader of The Prosperity Project Is he for real? I read this during a period in which I was very very sleepy on rides both to and from work I found the book a uick read so I do not believe I was being lulled to unconsciousness by an uninteresting tale Still I was not altogether taken in Deb’s methodology is to offer information exposition through the mouths and written records of people Amrit encounters in his search I suppose it is ok but I found it a little cheesy as if Deb had stitched together a few short stories he had lying about The tone of the thing was uite engaging calling to mind British writers like Graham Greene Daniel Dafoe He describes a part of the world in which civilization exists in a tenuous state It is a very third world image he shows us and I expect from other reading that it is probably accurate in feel and core if not in specifics Somehow though I did not finish the book with a feeling of fulfillment The protagonist had not really undergone a transformation at least as far as I could tell All that had been accomplished was to give us a window on a remote part of the world Maybe there is something in there about human longing the power of idealism the disappointment of humanity Maybe I missed something and might have picked up in a less fatigued state Alas I will never know However I did like the feel of his writing and expect that we will be seeing of Mister Deb in future He is definitely worth a second look

    i found when i was wandering the info shop at 17th and Pennsylvania Ave in DC this book was a great value and a great journey set in the far eastern indian states of Manipur and Nagaland along the border of Nepal it is the story of the search for a woman in an old photo who may have been the victim of revolutionary violence while working for a mercurial NGO which everyone praises but has never seen one thing that i loved about the book was deb’s way of allowing us to follow the personal development or struggles in the soul of a young journalist while never making any resolution to the story although there is some description in the novel about the subjects of the search many others who’ve read and reviewed this novel were very frustrated in what they thought to be a long winded story about nothing for me that’s what i loved about it a young professional trying to find himself taking a risk on a story that had no leads and no credible conclusion Seinfeld a story about nothing yet with a purpose this book also confronts the reader with very independent and autonomous women characters it is a detail american readers confronted with indian news reports of gang rape and religious violence against women will not fail to take note ofthis book was an adventure in imagination for me about bringing invisible folks to life than about making a splash i found this a rewarding read and a good trip to the eastern outposts of India

    A novel set in the 1990s in that part of India that sueezes eastward over the top of Bangladesh and then opens into a whole other country often seemingly forgotten as part of India bordering Burma farther to the east At the time and perhaps still it was an unruly area of tribal separatists rebel groups seeking autonomy bandits exiled Burmese along the border Indian military control and civil efforts at assimilation oddball development schemes etc The story explores much of this lively atmosphere through a young journalist’s journey looking for a woman once photographed as an apparent captive or hostage of a rebel group Very good on the complicated social setting and geography—I followed much of the overland journey via Google maps Some interesting colonial and WWII background also thrown in although this may be packing a bit too much and perhaps some stories within stories are a bit gratuitous by that token Nonetheless I uite liked it


  4. Sandhya Sandhya says:

    A sharp riveting account of life in the borderline states of North East where a young listless journalist Amrit is following up on a storyWhile the book acutely lacks in depth what manages to shine though is Siddhartha Deb's craftsmanship as a writer and a rare political consciousness


  5. Marnie Marnie says:

    Kinda felt that the story was obscured by a lot of other junk I kept waiting for something to happen but it never really did Disappointing


  6. Josie Josie says:

    Not as good as his recent work sort of an emptiness in its middle instead of a mood or idea

    I am still trying to read this book I am right now in the world of bizarre whimsical ficiton mind set I own this book so some day I will read it I just couldn't get into it at this moment
