This is first of its kind of book that I read (India under British rule from British author). I wont say it was awesome book but it wasn’t bad either.
Best thing about this book is it shows social structure of India under British rule and relation between British and Indian people as well as between India people of different class and religion.
Plot is based in small India city called Chandrapore and it circles around Dr. Aziz, Mr. fielding, Miss Quested, Mrs. Moore and to some extent Mr Heaslop & Prof. Godbole.
Miss quested accuses Dr. Aziz of something and it creates a big uproar in Chandrapore. Though Mr. fielding in British he sticks with Dr. Aziz. Due to this Mr. Fielding is thought as traitor in British circle. After the case is over Mr. Fielding speaks for Miss Qusted as well and After some interesting turns of event even Dr. Aziz and his circle also starts doubting Mr. fielding.
Mr. Fielding character stands out in this novel, he is don’t fear to speak for what he believes in.
One should read this book if he/she wants to know more about India under British rule in 1920s or 30s.
