Reviews

Ghosh's novel is a tense, compelling account... The accumulation of minutiae puts the reader so firmly in the time and place that the whole thing becomes as hypnotic as an opium dream and pretty unputdownable - Daily MailFor those who like to see history bought alive through the deployment of wave upon wave of plausible detail, River of Smoke should prove a marvellous read - Literary ReviewAny good historical novel should teach the reader some history as well as sweeping him or her along with an unfolding narrative. Few do this as well as Amitav Ghosh. A book whose conclusion again left me panting for the next volume in this trilogy - Financial TimesThe novel's strength lies in how thoroughly Ghosh fills out his research with his novelistic fantasy, seduced by each new situation that presents itself and each new character, so that the scenes read with a sensual freshness as if they were happening now - GuardianBest of all, Ghosh, through the depth of his research, lightly worn, has captured the many cross-currents of a fascinating historical period - SevenPraise for Sea of Poppies - ---Ripping post-colonial yarn ... Ghosh spins a fine story with a quite irresistible flow, breathing exuberant life ... an absorbing vision - Guardian
