My both elder sisters recommended this book ages ago but for some weird reason, i could not cross a certain hurdle which would be page Few days ago I retook it and take an oath that this time I am gonna finish it, no matter what happens.
Immediate reaction would be, "Why the heck I didn't read it long before? I am allergic to fat books but I guess this book gave me the thrill to read more fat books in future. About this book, the My both elder sisters recommended this book ages ago but for some weird reason, i could not cross a certain hurdle which would be page About this book, the way the writer portrait the 3 generations, 3 time lines story which gives you the chill to understand, "no matter in which age or time you are born, the only thing mattered and matters is 'how you take everything around you'.
Hemakanto was from English period but he possess a liberal mind, same goes for Dhrobho, he is new gen kid with liberal mind except Krishnokanto, he is bit fundamentalist but than again, all of them posses something which kind of shows they are from the same root.
An epic saga of two different generations. Their upbringing, their relationships, their struggle.. Reader gets engulfed in two different times, two different generations , their conflicts and look forward with an expectation of a dream ending, only to get a twist Oct 08, Neil Wadood added it. This book touched me in so many levels when I read it first.
Simply a masterpiece. May 14, Aanica Zulfiquar rated it it was amazing. Another favorite classic! Mar 17, Trisha Islam rated it really liked it. Really liked the book. The transition between two different generation and a middle man in both - this book is by far the best there is. This is my first book by Sirshendu Mukhopadhyay which actually inspired me to read his other works.
Oct 04, Nahian rated it really liked it. It was worth the time reading this lengthy novel. I cannot remember who recommended it to me but it was indeed a good one. But can it be considered a Bangla Classic? The most fascinating aspect of this novel is that, it has two simultaneous storyline: one in the past and one in the present. Both of them progress side by side.
But the fast pace of the novel saves it here. It never gets bogged down. The story hooks up the interest very early on. There are ample allusions that suggest something sinister had taken place in the past which created the abnormal family dynamics later on.
But disappointingly, as you approach the end, you will find out nothing really happened and there is no secret to be unveiled. You pretty much end where you had started. However there is a cheap twist at the end and the last line of the story is downright ludicrous.
So by all means the novel gets you high and then leaves you dry. Nonetheless, a very good read. Oct 24, Subhojit Bera rated it liked it Shelves: owned. Shirshendu's forte is dialogues. In the many other books I have read of him, he has expertly steered the narrative through dialogues that extend over multiple pages at times.
Something, I have seen very few authors able to do. In this book too, he uses the same technique. However, he overdoes it this time. This is his first book, that has made me say, "Way to stretch it.
It follows through three men of three generations, and their link with Shirshendu's forte is dialogues. It follows through three men of three generations, and their link with each other. Rather than taking a linear structure, the two stories have been told parallel to each other. Perhaps this is my personal opinion, but I am quite disappointed by the character development of the third generation, Dhrubakanti. In the first few chapters, his character builds up with such intensity and then it dies down and in fact it destroys all this build up towards the end of the book.
There are dialogue rich formats in many chapters of the book , however while they are enjoyable at first, they seem redundant afterwards, with the same subject being dragged over and over again. This is the probably Shirshendu's first book that I have rated below 4 stars.
Sep 16, Ishtiaque Khan rated it it was amazing. When I first started reading this book, the differentiated timelines and plethora of characters really confused me. But after reading it for a while, I started appreciating the brilliance of the entire plotline-how three generations of the same family endured through some testing times. The biggest achievement of this book is that no matter which character, main or minor, will leave a lasting impression in to your mind. Even though I read the book years ago, the entire plot line is quite clear t When I first started reading this book, the differentiated timelines and plethora of characters really confused me.
Even though I read the book years ago, the entire plot line is quite clear to me, still. A true masterpiece of Bangla modern literature. Apr 29, Dibyendu Pal rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. A saga of Three Generations! The two way narration was very well written. The ending to a massive book was also superb. I loved the writer's deep introspection of paternal instinct and human mind.
