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. Amitav Ghosh tops my list of authors I wish readers everywhere would get to know better. A fascinating tapestry.

The Hungry Tide (2004) is the sixth novel by Indian-born author, Amitav Ghosh. It won the 2004 Hutch Crossword Book Award for Fiction. Off the easternmost coast of India, in the Bay of Bengal, lies the immense labyrinth of tiny islands known as the Sundarbans. For settlers here, life is extremely precarious. Attacks by deadly tigers are common. Unrest and eviction are constant threats. Without warning, at any time, tidal floods rise and surge over the land, leaving devastation in their wake.

When the tides create new land, overnight mangroves begin to gestate, and if the conditions are right they can spread so fast as to cover a new island within a few short years.

Published by the Penguin Group. When the tides create new land, overnight mangroves begin to gestate, and if the conditions are right they can spread so fast as to cover a new island within a few short years. A mangrove forest is a universe unto itself, utterly unlike other woodlands or jungles. There are no towering, vine-looped trees, no ferns, no wildflowers, no chattering monkeys or cockatoos.

But Ghosh's book is about more than the pursuit of a disappointing dolphin

But Ghosh's book is about more than the pursuit of a disappointing dolphin. This last element is the least successful: Ghosh's prose is too precise, too pedantic, to find the right gear for action adventure. By the time he explains a near-miss with a crocodile, a real one would have had your head off and come back for seconds.

Amitav Ghosh The Hungry Tide. It took her a while to understand that he had created an enclosure to give her the privacy to change out of her wet clothes. In absorbing this, she was at first a little embarrassed to think that it was he rather than she herself, who had been the first to pay heed to the matter of her modesty. At the time she was living in a room that looked down on one of the busier walkways in the university. She had stood by the window and turned the glasses on the throngs of students below, focusing on their faces and even their books and newspapers, marvelling at the clarity of the resolution and the brilliance of the image.

From this moment, the tide begins to turn. A contemporary story of adventure and romance, identity and history, The Hungry Tide travels deep into one of the most fascinating regions on earth, where the treacherous forces of nature and human folly threaten to destroy a way of life. One fee. Stacks of books.

The Hungry Tide book. Off the easternmost corner of India, in the Bay of Bengal, lies. Amitav Ghosh, I must say is an amazing story teller and in this book he proved beyond doubt that literary skill of the Bengali is redoubtable! Absolutely engrossing, this book is one such where you come across a great story which is amazingly written and make you an instant fan of the author.

Early as it was, there was already a cycle-van waiting at the gate uitcase, Piya’s two backpacks and a bundle of blankets and pillows they had borrowed from the Guest House. They set off at a brisk pace and were soon at the outskirts of Lusibari village. They had almost reached the embankment when the driver spun around in his seat and pointed ahead. Look, something’s happening over there on the bãdh. Kanai and Piya were facing backward.

Название книги: The Hungry Tide. Amitav Ghosh asserts the moral right to be identified as the author of this work. This novel is entirely a work of fiction. The names, characters and incidents portrayed in it, while at times based on historical events and figures, are the work of the author’s imagination.

The author of The Glass Palace presents a new novel of life in modern India, chronicling the interwoven journey of an American marine biologist and a Delhi businessman who travel to the remote Sundarban islands. 40,000 first printing.

This is the fourth novel that I have read by Amitav Ghosh and I remain astounded by his intelligence and his mastery of language. This book takes place in a part of India that I had previously known nothing about. The descriptions of the tidal environment, its history, and its inhabitants, both human and animal, are simply stunning. I live on the water and see dolphins every day. I never knew river dolphins existed before reading this book. Each time I read one of Amitav Ghosh' books, I learn not just one thing, but many things. I highly recommend Hungry Tide to anyone with an adventuresome spirit, a love of animals and an appreciation of beautiful writing.

I knew nothing of this author until a friend mentioned that I might enjoy this well crafted description of an exotic locale and people......all woven together with a vivid description of the flora, fauna, geology, meteorology of the largest island and river delta in the world. I am a botanist by training and greatly enjoyed the way that respect for the natural world was thematic throughout. Add to this a love story, life and death situations, excellent character development and your time spent is well rewarded.

The tide country setting is as much a character as any human in this thought-provoking tale of human and nature interaction --- not just human and nature, but human and human as well as nature and nature. I read it in South Florida, gazing over mangroves that echoed the setting of a story. A different sort of writing than I'm used to, but the characters were largely believable. The suggestion of romance added nothing and could have been omitted.

This book has some unusual characters representing several cultures and social milieu. Life in a unique Indian ecological niche and the subculture, flora and fauna that populate the mangrove forests and islands of southeast India provide the fascinating context to an unusual love story and adventure.
Nothing personal
Very atmospheric. Spooky. I liked Glass Palace much more. 3+ or 4-

This book, like all of the others I have read by Ghosh is a stunning work of fiction. It is mystical, suspense full and deeply thought provoking . Though I did not want it to end I could not compel myself to stop reading.

I love all of Amitav's books. This one taught me so much about the mangroves and the effects of climate change on islands and the effects that climate change will have on people's everyday lives. Very descriptive, as always.
Somewhat engaging. Wanted to get to know the characters better. End was very abrupt. Did not feel much empathy for the characters from the writing. Interesting but want more from a read.
