Reviews
"One doesn't so much read Ghosh's masterful fifth novel as inhabit his characters and the alluring if treacherous Sundarban archipelago...a lush backdrop for an intricate narrative." Publishers Weekly, Starred

"...lovingly and fanatically and even beautifully about a place...[Ghosh] has created a large, colorful story and a voluptuous world into which we gratefully disappear." O, The Oprah Magazine

"The Hungry Tide is a great swirl of political, social, and environmental issures, presented through a story that's full of romance, suspense, and poetry." The Washington Post

"Ghosh not only infuses great energy and spirit into an engrossing tale of caste and culture, he deftly introduces readers to a little-known world and makes it familiar." (Editor's Choice) Entertainment Weekly

"Amitav Ghosh tops my list of authors I wish readers everywhere would get to know better." Seattle Times/Post-Intelligencer

"A fascinating tapestry." Kirkus Reviews
