Throat as he grinned back at them with an admiration and affection that was too deep for words Yes life would have been worth living if only to have served and fought with men like these It had been a privilege to command them an normous privilege and it would be an ven greater one to die with them They were the salt of the arth They were the Guides His throat tightened as he looked at them and he was aware again of a hard lump in it but his Crown of Stars (Crown of Stars, eyes were very bright as he reached for his sabre and swallowing painfully to clear that constriction he said almost gaily Are we ready Good Then open the doors And then he dies though not without uoting the Aeneid because I guess all 19th century Irish dudes are into that sort of thing Sorry to spoil it for you but uh I m just trying to spare you all from reading itAnyway thisvent convinces Ash and Anjuli that they re too good for the rest of humanity and so they should just go live by themselves in some valley in the Himalayas the fact that the Himalayas are you know already populated does not appear to present a problem Where do you goWe go to find our Kingdom Sirdar Sahib Our own Dur Khaima our far pavilionsYourThe Sirdar looked so bewildered that Ash s mouth twitched in the shadow of a smile as he said Let me say rather that we hope to find it We go in search of some place where we may live and work in peace and where men do not kill or persecute ach other for sport or at the bidding of Governments or because others do not think or speak or pray as they do or have skins of a different colour do not know if there is such a place or if we find it whether it will prove too hard to live there building our own house and growing our own food and raising and teaching our children Yet others without number have done so in the past Countless others since the day that out First Parents were xpelled from Eden And what others have done we can doAnd then the book nds abruptly without revealing if they found their kingdom On the other hand then the books nds I don t have to read it any I AM DONE THANK GOD Some books get into your senses They fill your nose with the scent of a people the lick of the sun on bare skin the brazen gossip of silk sheets or This Forsaken Earth engulfs you with a composition of shadows that hints at something beyond line of sight MM Kaye is a storyteller that makes you taste India She takes her own lifexperience and like Rudyard Kipling and Frances Hodgson Burnett draws fairy tales in the sands of Southern India while tucked in at the bed of the Himalayans This is not just a book for women with its romance and its splendour but Ernest Hemmingway would be proud of the imagery used to The Summer Palace: A Captive Prince Short Story (Captive Prince Short Stories Book 2) explain the Sepoy Mutiny the uprising of the colonised soldiers against the colonist generals A contrast in textures hard and soft rough and smooth creamy and uenching sweet and savoury all wrapped up in black and white Another book that came across my feed reminding me that I read andnjoyed this book back in The Garden of Happy Endings early 1980 after it was released the year before One of the many reasons I love the GR feed so much is because it helps me to add books read long ago and add them to the list I alsonjoyed the miniseries that was made of the book in the Campfire earlymidighties featuring Amy Irving Reading this book for the first time as a teenager was a magical My Little Blue Dress experience for me It was the first time I hadver been so deeply submerged in a book that I literally felt dazed and disoriented when it Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars ended and I had to return to reality They were so real for me Ash and Juli Wally and Zarin Biju Ram and Hira Lal Leaving their world leaving In Another one of my all time favorites I don t know how I stumbled on this book but its worth the 955 pages yeah really What I liked best about this book is thexploration of the main characters alienation He is neither British nor Indian Christian Muslim or Hindu he s verything and nothing all at once Actually I might recommend this book if you liked Life of Pi Although I would say that this is a much thorough and interesting tale The novel takes place in India in the late 1880s during a series of battles between Afghanistan and India and other various battles for the East India Company Ashton also called Ashok is born to an English professor and a British mother in India However his parents die of cholera when he is a baby and he is raised Hindu by a woman named Sita Ashok lives a life in poverty as an attendant for a noble family and also becomes very close to the games keeper who is Muslim and learns their traditions as well It s only when he is 13 or 14 that he learns that he is English and not Indian He s sent to British boarding school and finds himself totally alienated When he is 18 he joins the Corps of Guides and returns to India Lots of battles and love affairs follow This is a great book if you like detailed family sagas and historical novels since I believe the book is couched in actual vents I can t believe I waited 25 years to read this again Oh well the first copy I had I loaned out and never got back I would give this 10 stars if I could I had forgotten how good this book was Thank you for recommending books and Listmania so many wonderful books I would never have found or rediscovered without you A truly wonderful story of star crossed lovers treachery

favorite books The Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs everThis is anpic novel of Ashton Pelham Martyn an English officer during the British Raj period in India who falls in love with Anjuli a half caste Hindu princess The author s knowledge of and childhood Moreno experiences in India make this anpic and unforgettable bookA sweeping and gripping high adventure and passionate love story of heroism and cruelty bigotry and prejudice danger and love and the most breathtaking and vivid descriptions of 19th century India an absolute MASTERPIECE A fantastic reread Monsieur Pain every time I ve been putting off writing a review for The Far Pavilions because it s so complex andpic that I feel like I can t do it justice without writing an A Spark of Light: the fearless new novel from the Number One bestselling author euallypic review But I ve put this off for too long already and so we ll all just have to be satisfied with a less impressive but manageable reviewThis story takes place in India during the mid 1800s when the British controlled India as part of their far flung What If empire Ashton Pelham Martyn is the son of an English professor andxplorer of India He s orphaned at a very young age and for various reasons The Exhaustion Breakthrough ends up being unofficially adopted by an Indian widow who calls him Ashok and keeps him as they travel to northern India in sight of the mystical Himalayan mountains which young Ash worshipfully calls the Far PavilionsAsh s formative years are spent immersed in Indian culture When his adoptive mother is dying when he is about 11 years old she finally tells him that he is British not Indian and soon Ash is packed off to England to get anducation and develop this part of his heritage Everyone involved wants him to become a card carrying member of the stiff upper lip highbrow British society with just The Exhaustion Breakthrough: Unmask the Hidden Reasons You're Tired and Beat Fatigue for Good enough retained knowledge of Indian languages and culture to make him useful to the British armyIt never uite takesAsh is a mix of both East and West which is uncomfortable for both himself andveryone around him He tells Koda Dad his Indian father figure that he will always be two people in one skin which is not a comfortable thing to be Koda Dad responds that you may discover in yourself a third person who is neither Ashok nor Pelham Sahib but someone whole and complete The conflict between East and West both in Ash s soul and in this part of the world generally is one of the major themes of this book but there is so much an amazing love story with ups and downs than a roller coaster a terrifying dive into a corner of India that has preserved its same brutal backward culture for hundreds of years and the British battle for a foothold in AfghanistanThe love story Supplemental Book epitomizes the divide between India and Britain but alsovinces the hope that there can be an understanding between them There was nothing that he could not tell her or that she would not understand and to lose her now would be like losing his heart and his soul And what man can live without the one or hope for Heaven without the other The last couple of hundred pages of the book turn in a uite different direction and focus on different characters although the same themes continue to surface in new ways Frankly this part dragged for me particularly as it Hark! The Herald Angels Scream evolved into an astoundingly detailed retelling and analysis of an actual historic one day conflict in Afghanistan I was tempted to dock a full star for that But overall this is such an amazing well researched story that I have to round up I was sniffling and wiping away tears as I finished the book Truly it spic in Colloquial Polish: The Complete Course for Beginners every sense of the word45 stars July 2014 buddy read with Diane Kathy Hana and Felicia A novel about India in the late 1800s I ve been putting off reading this book despite it being hugely famous and people constantly asking me if I ve read it because I m pretty sure it s going to be obnoxiously pro colonialism The dedication for instance is to the author s husband and father in law British soldiers who served in India But I m not farnough into it
yet to judge so perhaps I ll be pleasantly surprisedI was uite amused by this passage describing a woman who diedto judge so perhaps I ll be pleasantly surprisedI was uite amused by this passage describing a woman who died giving birth in a tent It was not her fault that Isobel died It was the wind that killed Isobel that cold wind off the far high snows beyond the passes It stirred up the dust and the dead pine needles and sent them swirling through the tent where the lamp guttered to the draught and there was dirt in that dust germs and infection and uncleanness from the camp outside and from other camps Dirt that would not have been found in a bedroom in Peshawar cantonment with an English doctor to care for the young motherI m pretty sure the author a does not understand how germs work and b is way overestimating the value of a doctor in 1850 So I was afraid this book would be colonialist and it turns out I was right D As well as being terrible in all sorts of ways Rather than detail them all I think I ll just xcerpt this bit for your njoyment the context is that Anjuli an Indian princess because of course she is has snuck out.

Alone to meet privately with Ash a British dude If it is for yourself that you are afraid said Anjuli sweetly you have no cause to be for I sleep alone and therefore no one will miss me And if I feared for myself I would not be hereHer voice was still barely than a whisper but there was so much scorn in it that the blood came up into Ash s face and for a fraction of a second his fingers tightened cruelly about her wristWhy you little bitch said Ash softly and in EnglishOUR HERO LADIES AND GENTLEMEN And no why her not being afraid should make her a bitch makes no sense in context If anything it s shocking because the rest of the book treats swearing much as 19th century literature would that is avoids it nearly ntirelyThere s also plenty of narrative discourse xpounding upon the foreign ways of the East crafty prone to lying intricate and how they differ from the ways of the West straightforward honest fair and how impossible it is that The Ballad of Dorothy Wordsworth ever the twain should meet However Our Hero Ash was raised as an Indian for most of his childhood and thus can cross the lines Thexample given for this is whenever he s asked a general polite uestion What s your opinion or How are you he answers honestly ven when one is xpected to tell a white lie And this shows how foreign he is from those straightforward British I don t know why it bothers me that the author can t keep her racism straight BUT IT DOESI m going to read the next 800 pages anyway because I have a Thing about finishing books I ve started but it s totally going to be a hate readAnother distressing passage for you all The context here is that Ash and Anjuli are in love but Anjuli refuses to run away with him because she promised to take care of her younger sister Shushila Ash caught her wrist and wrenched her hand away But I love you too And I need you Does that mean nothing to you Do you care so much for her than you do for me Do you And my happiness demanded Ash his voice harsh with pain Does mine not matterBut it had been no good Nothing that he could say had made any difference He had used Pretty Reckless (All Saints High, every argument andvery plea he could think of and at last he had taken her again ravaging her with an animal violence that had bruised and hurt yet was still sexually skilful nough to force a response from her that was half pain and half piercing rapture But when it was over and they lay spent and breathless she could still say I cannot betray her And he knew that Shushila had won and that he was beaten His arms fell away and he drew aside and lay on his back staring up into the darkness and for a long time neither of them spokeGOOD JOB ASH This is totally the way to convince someone to spend their life with you act like a whiny brat and then abuse them That s what I like in a romantic hero I didn t ven include the part where Anjuli tells him not to worry she knows how to make her future husband think she s a virgin and Ash is disgusted and angry that she knows harlot s tricksAsh continues to be a dick news at The West Transformed elevenStill terrible In recent developments of the terribleness Anjuli Ash s One True Love and her sister Shushila have been condemned to be burned alive I also have a lot of Doylist criticisms of the climaticvent of the novel being a European dude rescuing an Indian woman from sati but let s stick to Watsonian terribleness for the moment But obviously Ash only really cares about saving one woman from this fate because yo he s not in love with Shushila so who cares what happens to her Or as he says to Anjuli when she feels obligated to watch Shushila WHO AGAIN IS HER SISTER till the nd Shushila Ash spat out the name as though it were an obscenity Always Shushila and selfish to the nd I suppose she made you promise to do this She would Oh I know she saved you from burning with her but if she d really wanted to repay you for all you have done for her she could have saved you from reprisals at the hands of the Diwan by having you smuggled out of the state instead of begging you to come here and watch her dieYou don t understand whispered Anjuli numblyOh yes I do That s where you are wrong I understand only too well You are still hypnotized by that selfish hysterical little gotistOr later after Shushila has died and Anjuli is still mourning her it s been like less than a month by the way You will not said Ash speaking between clenched teeth say that name to me again Now or ver Do you understand I m sick and tired of it While she was
I had stand aside and see you sacrifice yourself and our whole future for her sake and now that she s dead it seems that you are just as determined to wreck the rest of our lives by brooding and moping and moaning over her memory She s dead but you still refuse to face that You won t let her go will youHe pushed Anjuli away with a savage thrust that sent her reeling against the wall for support and said gratingly Well from now on you re going to let the poor girl rest in peace instead of Paper Chasers encouraging her to haunt you You re my wife now and I m damned if I m going to share you with Shu shu I m not having two women in my bedven if one of them is a ghost so you can make up your mind here and now myself or ShushilaOH ASH SO ROMANTIC But hey it turns out to be okay because then Anjuli relates a long story about how Ash was right all along and Shushila was totally an The Complete Polly and the Wolf evil bitch just like her mother because I guessvil and sexiness is genetic I can t wait until I m done with this bookGod this book is VOYAGES DE GRANDE CROISIERE endless But I m so close to being done For the dramatic climax Ash has gone off to disguise himself as an Afghani to be a spy and live in Kabul during the Second Anglo Afghan War Because this is obviously a veryxciting plot development that would be fun to read about it s all happening off screen while the last hundred of so pages have been a nearly non fictional account of politics and battles Without Ash around to be a sexist dick the author has instead gone with bizarre European stereotypes because I suppose something has to be terrible And as he watched the prescience that is so often a part of the Irish heritage stirred in him bringing a premonition of disaster that was so strong that instinctively he flung up a hand as though to ward it off man I have Irish heritage WHEN DO I GET TO TELL THE FUTURE and He had not xpected the older man to understand how he had felt but Louis Cavagnari was only English by adoption The blood inalive i had
His Veins Was Frenchveins was French Irish and he too was a romantic I d like to note that this book was written in 1978 not 1878OH GOD FINALLY For the final hundred or so pages the book morphs into an incredibly detailed account of the attack on the British mbassy in Kabul by unpaid discontented Afghani soldiers Ash plays no part in this as he spends the Pookie-Pie: A Sweet Bedtime Story entire time locked in a closet by someone trying to protect him from himself The bookven includes a map of the mbassy so you can follow along with who is where like some sort of military textbook Because that goes so well with the previous leven hundred pages Also there is lots of weird nearly religious praising of soldiery ideals The Guides laughed again and their laughter made Wally s heart lift with pride and brought a lump to his.
