    One thought on “Ishq And Mushq”

    1. EVER since Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children bagged the Booker of Bookers in 1993 -- declaring it the best novel written during the Prize's first 25 years of existence -- Indian literature in English has officially been, in a word, hot. It is easy to see the appeal of such novels. India has a rich history of thousands years from which to glean inspiration, yet the former British colony still feels accessible and relevant to Westerners. Meanwhile, its people are cosmopolitan -- particular the [...]

    2. Overall I really enjoyed this book. The only complaint I had about it was that it went off on random tangents from time to time making me lose interest in the plotline, but otherwise it was a really great story with nicely developed, interesting characters and as it covered a specific subject (Sikhs) in both India/Africa and then in England, I found it of particular interest as I knew nothing before now about their culture, so that was cool.

    3. Really enjoyed this. At times I felt the book was double the length it needed to be to tell the story it wanted to tell! Ultimately satisfied with the ending and book as a whole! Would read again. Bit disbelieving that there are so many negative reviews! A solid first novel, look forward to seeing more from Basil in the future!

    4. Эту книгу я купила просто потому, что больше ничего интересного не попалось на глаза. Лучше бы я ничего не покупала. Сразу скажу, что книга просто никакая. Индийская семья с маленькими детишками переезжают из Намибии в Лондон. Наверное, это меня и зацепило. Ну, знаете, люблю ч [...]

    5. My Review:I counted this book for AFRICA: Kenya for the666 for 2015 - An Around the World Reading Challenge .This story spans London, England (United Kingdom), Nairobi (Kenya), Kampala (Uganda) and India, so a great choice for this challenge! The author herself grew up in Kenya too.This is a story of 3 generations of Punjabis, the Singh family, who are Indian and move from Nairobi (Kenya) to Kampala (Uganda) and then on to London, England. Its a story of fitting in, the struggle for head of the [...]

    6. This is Priya Basil's first book and clearly a labor of love. The labor however, is very evident. The book tries to do and be many things, and while the author clearly has a marvellous command over the English language, her prose fails to draw one into the story. Readable, but not a great or very good read.

    7. Un libro agrodolce, che ti fa venire voglia di ordinare tutto il takeaway indiano sul menu, ma che racconta anche una storia familiare intrecciata e complessa con amori, piccole vendette, segreti, tentativi di dimenticare e profumi incredibili. Letto in un lampo, ottima evasione dal lavoro e dai lunghi viaggi in treno!

    8. Journey spans from partition to Africa to England, enjoyable, although sometimes laboured a point too much, occasionally made me wonder why irrelevant tangents were explored, but came clear at the end. Would recommend, if only to show why some first generation Indians have the values and thoughts they do, and how the next generation have changed.

    9. I'm afraid I've given up on this as it just isn't holding my attention but then I've been so busy lately I've not had time to think about any. I've given it 3 stars as the bit I read seemed well written and I don't think it is right to mark a book down for personal preference.

    10. I decided to read this book because it said on the back that a lot of food was involved. It was a disappointment. The book itself was a bit tedious: it would have been more interesting if it's volume was half of what it is now. I finished it though: that's the reason it still got 2 stars.

    11. A tough read. Fairly joyless. Felt a little bit like Kate Chopin, only Indian. Interesting commentary on traditional familial roles, esp. the mother worship in Inidan culture. A good read if you really enjoy books about the Indian culture - lots on food, which I loved!

    12. I get stuck with any book that is set across a span of time. And so it was with this one. i enjoyed the glimpse into the life of Indians in Africa who moved to Britain. The whole British Punjabi diaspora. But that was it. Not more than that.

    13. It´s Priya´s Basil´s first book.It spans Partition from India, elixabthe 11´s Coronation and Chruchill´s funeral to the present day. It´s a passinate and moving family drama but a little too long.

    14. Enjoyable and well written but too similar to all the other Birtish-Asian books around at the moment
