    Epub pb reisen gewusst wie.de Õ The Shadow Lines PDF/EPUB ✓ The Shadow ePUB ä shadow epub, lines epub, The Shadow kindle, The Shadow Lines PDFThere are some books that are difficult to review Their pages open up to spill a mixed bag of emotions and self contained little worlds onto your lap As the pages whirl by boundaries blur And the worlds with their bags of emotions seep into your veins absorbed into the sponge of your sub conscious That's when you realize the book is now a part of you that there was something so compatible between your mind your feelings and the book that there are no separate entities now And you become bemused You scratch your head as to how to describe things this fundamental and universal Like the yearning for freedom Or the texture of violence that often accompanies it Or how in the end the very violence that brings in freedom chokes it In Shadow Lines Amitav Ghosh brings these subconscious murmurs to light and paints them with stunning heart breaking beauty on national canvases The images bloom and fade rapidly with startling juxtaposing of genteel middle class livi

    Epub pb reisen gewusst wie.de Õ The Shadow Lines PDF/EPUB ✓ The Shadow ePUB ä shadow epub, lines epub, The Shadow kindle, The Shadow Lines PDFThe Shadow Lines by Amitav Ghosh4 StarsOn its surface Shady Lines is about two families – one English and one Bengali – whose lives have been intertwined for three generations The unnamed narrator Indian born and English educated has grown up with the stories of his uncle Tridib It is through these seemingly unrelated stories that the larger picture slowly unfold until eventually you realize that they are all culminating in a single tragic event that impacts both familiesUltimately the story is about stories The stories of family history the stories in history and the stories needed to deal with traumatic events The way the stories are presented may cause issue for some readers because the shifts are subtle with no time marker to establish past present or future The narrator observes “for having seen it first through Tridib’ eyes its past seemed concurrent with its present”

And all of a sudden I realized that I have the same muddled confusion over this book The story is about a Bengali boy and follows his life from a child in Calcutta through a college education in England and returning home to India It is definitely set in a turbulent time period from post World War II through the IndiaPakistan partition to the late 20th century I enjoyed many of the issues covered in this book people getting displaced by Partition living as a foreigner in another country and racial and religious bigotry But the style of writing made reading this book feel like work instead of pleasure The st
