Any favourite books by Indian authors ?
So far I have read only one book by an Indian author and that is Immortals Of Meluha and I liked it.
Sacred Games by Vikram Chandra. Incredible!
Shamed by Sarbjit Kaur Athwal.
The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie
A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
That is an amazing book….very long but well worth it!
@Heather I’m glad you agree! It’s one of the most heartbreaking books I’ve ever read but I’m very glad I read it.
@Sarah Exactly! I remember texting my friend who recommended it to me and begging her to tell me that something….anything!… good was going to happen to those people. Heartbreaking for sure and so very powerful…
