By Arun (Trivandrum, Kerala, India) · ★★★★★ · January 19, 2012
The English language has a word that can aptly summarize this book : Magic . Amidst these pages is sketched a portrait of a place named Khasak. A sleepy hamlet isolated from the relatively bustling town of Palakkadu in northern Kerala is Khasak. Guarded by the brooding & enigmatic palms the... ...more

Such was the influence of his debut Malayalam novel Khas... ...more
By Gayathri (Kayamkulam, 19, India) · ★★★★★ · February 26, 2014
A book which portrays the soul of the villages of Kerala. Filled with every character you'd expect to find in a village... The same communist struggles, religious conflicts, legends, myths, rituals all packed up into a single book that beautifully traverses through the life of the protagonist who... ...more
By Abeer (Dhaka, Bangladesh) · ★★★★☆ · January 13, 2008
Gorgeously sensuously written (and translated from Malayalam by the author himself) - dreamy and deep fabulist stories that twine science and fate. Will have to pick up more of his stuff when I can. ...more

'Njangalku vazhi kanichu taruka,avar paranju. Avarude kannukal kalanjitu tirichuvaran ayaalavarodu paranju..'
Even though this is the story of common men in day-to-day life,I'll call this a fable because all the characters seemed to be talking in multidimensions. It was a bit difficult reading it... ...more

Hype is usually the death of enjoyment. I have found this to be true of so many things; from movies to places to food to books. And it is fiction that has let me down more than any other. Not that it is anybody’s fault. Such is the variety in themes, context, treatment etc in world fiction that s... ...more
