    "While this book has settings of India, it is not just an Indian book. It is hard to label this as a book about Indian when it's a fictional historical book."

    "This book is why I read books. It covers a century in a place I know little about, but the stories about the people (and their loves) are universal and compelling. Well regarded by both the critics and the "peeps.""

    "The Glass Palace is a good book based in South Asia. If historical fiction is your cup of tea, I would say give it a chance, especially if you're interested in the region or in the Konbaung dynasty."

    "From the Land of Green Ghosts: A Burmese Odyssey by Pascal Khoo Thwe is an awesome novel about a professor visiting a village in Burma in 1988. This event is a story about a life changing love and a life and death struggle with Burma's military dictatorship. And awesome adventure."

    "I have really wanted to read an Indian historical fiction novel lately so I decided to check out my local library. The librarian was able to help me find a book that met these needs so I checked out The Glass Palace. This novel actually taught me a lot about the cultural history of India."

    "I liked that this book was set in Burma in the 1800's because life was so different back then. It's a long story but worth the read for the moral of the story and to appreciate this author's wonderful style of writing."
