    One thought on “The Sunset Club”

    1. In spite of all the negative reviews, I was stubborn to read this. The only reason being to want to read all of the author's novels.An interesting premise in the form of three 80+ yrs old friends day to day discussions - a Hindu,a Sikh and a Muslim.Loved the beginning when notorious jibes were hauled at the Indian constitution and each other's religion.And then it turned into reminiscenes of the sexual encounters of these men in their youth!While Singh saab gets on your nerves with sick details [...]

    2. A light read. A peep into the minds of octogenarians. I am a regular at Lodhi Gardens and now everytime I see the 'Barha Gumbad' and the 'Boorha Binch' I begin to smile inadvertently.

    3. Verdict while reading: I have read about 7 chapters in the book. Regretting it. My advice would be stay away. No content here. An old man's fantasies involving Scotch, women and farts/bowels (yes, this one is really important.) Ugh. Three old men from three different religions - Sharma (Hindu), Boota (Sardar) and Baig (Muslim) sit at a bench almost everyday in Lodhi gardens and converse on politics etc. The conversations only manifest Khushwant Singh's opinions (you have read those many times in [...]

    4. By Khushwant Singh The truth is, we Indians are full of contradictions: we preach peace to the world and prepare for war.I don't remember the names of the three old 'farts' that this book is about. They are old men, who have been 'friends' for 40 years and are engaging each other during the sunset years of their lives. Names are honestly not needed, as the differentiations in their characters relies on their varied religions and cultural backgrounds. Hindu, Muslim and Sikh, these are the tree [...]

    5. Once my neighbors were an old couple. The man would gladly stop me whenever he saw me outside my home and begin with his service stories. He used to regale me with the tales of him being revered by villagers and even had a hand carved knife which he said was a token of gratitude from a tribal hamlet. This is roughly what the book is all about. It sketches the meetings of three old men in Delhi's Lodhi Gardens and the directions their conversations go. Even with this sparsest of descriptions, you [...]

    6. Khushwant Singh is one of India’s best known authors but I had never read him before. This book was written in 2009-2010, when Singh had already turned 95. This is quite amazing to me. In the foreword, entitled ‘Apologia’, the author states that, in his age, he had no intention of writing the novel, as he was not sure he would be able to finish it. The book tells the story of three old friends, all in their late-80s, who form the Sunset Club, gathering most every evening on a park bench in [...]

    7. Like a Batman is a Batman, a Khushwant Singh is a Khushwant singh. The story is about old men trying to involve themselves with the daily routines. Although they don't play an active part in their lives anymore, their blabber is like anyone who can call the shots. Sexual fantasies and laze are ubiquitous in the story and makes the reader hate the idea of getting old.Narration is captivating and you tend to imagine the characters for real.

    8. This is the first book by Khushwant Singh that I have read and have really enjoyed reading it. The authors simple narration and straightforwardness is what makes this book immensely readable.

    9. Sunset Club is the story of two of Khushwant's friends, and Khushwant Singh himself in the guise of Sardar Boota Singh. The three friends are in their late eightees. They meet and chat every evening on a bench in Delhi's Lodhi Gardens. The bench faces a mosque-dome, and the shape of the dome stimulates Khushwant's sex-obsessed fantasies.The three friends belong to different religions, and their opinions often clash. Sakina Begum, the wife of Baig Sahib, is an indirect but active partner in these [...]

    10. This was the first time I actually read a Khushwant Singh book. It was the blurb that got me. The idea of three octogenarians in Delhi discussing everything from the weather to sex to politics was intriguing. Not because of the topics themselves, but because I have wondered about the lives of old people, the daily rituals they hold dear, and their perspectives of a changing world. Khushwant Singh was 95 when he wrote this (!) and therefore this would be very close to the real thing. I wasn't mis [...]

    11. Here I am reading novel from grand old man of India, i.e Khushwant Singh. Before this I remember reading some of his short stories back in school/college text books.I had heard about his agnostic nature and arrogant behavior but here in this book I have been enlightened to his erotic anecdotes style. Well I was quite surprised to read the such a literature from 96+ years(now 98 on 2013) old "Buzurg". And the readers need to find by themself of what's in store by reading the book. Maybe the eroti [...]

    12. Simple narrative, readable, start to finish book written by the 97 year old veteran author Khushwant Singh. It's amazing to see an author of such calibre write with such simplicity. The Sunset Club, probably the author's last is a feel good book that shares with us the lives of three lonely old men who belong to different caste, creed and mindset. It is a story about their friendship. Sharma , Baig and Boota Singh meet every evening at the 'boorha bench', Lodhi Garden, New Delhi. They have been [...]

    13. I picked up this book, thinking it would be as fascinating as 'In the Company of Women' by KS. Alas! This book in simple words, is for a bunch of old people who are idle the entire day, are not a part of any clubs and need someone to converse with. I wouldn't say its a bore or a tasteless read, rather you can easily spot the KS style humor(based on how well an observer of humans he has been) and have a few laughs often. However, it comes with a certain age bracket(and if you belong to it, you wo [...]

    14. I've read only a handful of Khushwant Singh's novels, and have enjoyed them all. I enjoyed reading this book as well, not as much as the others, but still enjoyed it. I love the way a Khushwant Singh's novels are written. This book revolves around the lives of three friends. One Sikh, one Hindu and one Muslim. They reminiscence about the past, talk about current events, and provide support to one another as they age. Flashbacks happen quite often. Stories about sexual encounters are the majoirty [...]

    15. The book revolves around the lives of three friends who are at their sunset age and relish their meetings at Lodhi Garden everyday at sunset. They talk about everything; sex, women, politics, news, sex scandals, relegion, work, and enjoy every bit of their conversation with some tiffs. It is beautifully written novel that explores friendship, sexuality, old age, frailty, nature, festivals; an insightful portrait of India's paradoxes and complexities. I felt the pain of old aged Boota Singh when [...]

    16. Three different men of three different religions sit in the bench of Lodi garden and discuss the day today news and their life routines. They are old men who have been friends for 40 years. A light and comical read. It’s quite amazing that this book was written by Khushwant Singh at the age of 95 years. It’s a beautifully written novel in which these friends talk about everything like college friends or the street friends talk with each other.

    17. Simple narrative, I picked up this book, thinking it would be fascinating. This book in simple words, is for a bunch of old people who are idle the entire day. I wouldn't say its a bore or a tasteless read, rather you can easily spot the KS style humor(based on how well an observer of humans he has been) and have a few laughs often. However, it comes with a certain age bracket.

    18. Wow! this book made me nostalgic. All about India , life of a common man, the stuff they talk and the things they can only boast of but do nothing about, they food they eat,politics and what i love most about this book is the way it describes the 4 seasons of India and links them to our daily lives.

    19. Kushwant Singh had me glued, with several laughs and lots of information on Delhi's diverse fauna and swear words before the inevitable tragic end. I appreciate the his candid style and the cheek to explore topics few would consider decent. Sex and ablutions are a part of our lives but are rarely popular topics for discussion. His truthfulness is the reason why I enjoyed the book!

    20. Salacious, brash yet a good enjoyable narrative - typical KS humor stays intact with some profound Shayaris particularly of Mirza GhalibIf you are looking for a continuous story it is not the right book along with the regular topics u would read more about -- Drink, Sex and about debilitating health condition in old days – So be prepare for that :)

    21. though people in the sunset of their lives would relate to this book more, this book has some great insights into our lives! i, unexpectedly, liked this book a lot! Khushwant Singh once again at it! :)

    22. Story of 3 old men who walk and meet in Lodhi Park in delhi over 12 months. One chapter for one month. They talk about weather, history, current political/social events, their lives, their relationships and quote poetry. Author was apparently 93 years old when he wrote this book. Delightful book.

    23. Enthralling.ough i have not read other works of khushwant singh;i really enjoyed it.He is honest and true.He doesnt not hesitate to speak on subjects people detest of talking in public.The book reflects an Indian's thoughts and ideas on various subjects.Completely enjoyed reading it.

    24. This is a typical Khushwant Singh book. Sex, humor, poor story; rather most of Kushwant's books (except Train to Pakistan) are centered around him only.Though the book makes you laugh 2-3 times, there's hardly any value in there.Pathetic read; not recommended to anyone.

    25. In a splendid way,Khushwant singh has shown the domain of life through the lifes of the characters. They escapdes,sexscapdes,happiness,misery,longing for fun and togetherness all through their life has been great.Looking forward to more reading stuff.

    26. Crap of a novel. Wasted my time reading this trash. The whole novel is about 3 oldies talking about constipation,sex and politics. Wish there was a negative rating.
