What the community says about A Suitable Boy
- "This book should probably be nominated as a must read as it really delves into the complex society and culture of India. The story itself revolves around an Indian boy in the 1950s though it addresses many complex issues that most people on the Western hemisphere aren't all that familiar with. I thought it was a very interesting book to read and it definitely kept my attention. I'm normally not used to reading autobiographical books though this one is unique in that it paints a different perspective and culture. "
- "A Suitable Boy is a great read for someone who enjoys a long book. I learned so much about the history and culture of India. Full of vignettes, tragedy and comedy. Loved every minute of it. Well-researched cultural background of 1950's India and well-balanced story lines with interesting characters. In many ways the novel is masterful."
