Off the easternmost corner of India in the Bay of Bengal lies the immense labyrinth of tiny islands known as the Sundarbans where settlers live in fear of drowning tides and man eating tigers Piya Roy a young. I know Amitav Ghosh isn't for everyone but I just adore his writing I can't think of another author who can transport me to another place the way he does whether it's India somewhere else in Asia the US or the UK I haven't yet visited the Sundarbans but after reading The Hungry Tide I feel like I've suelched my toes in the mud and scratched my skin on the mangrove roots of that regionPiya Roy and Kanai rhymes with Hawaii Dutt meet on a train when both are traveling to the Sundarbans; Piya to study the Irrawaddy dolphin population and Kanai to visit his aunt and review a manuscript left to him by his long departed uncle Through a series of events Piya unexpectedly finds herself on Lusibari island taking up Kanai's casual invitation to look him up while she's in the area Both get caught up in the region's past in different ways and by the end they have both mapped out a future for themselves that is tied to the Sundarbans The story includes themes about conservation ecology displacement human trafficking caste literacy and economic disparityOne thing I didn't really find convincing was the idea that either of the main characters would have seriously contemplated any kind of romantic involvement with each other There didn't seem to be any spark But that was such an inconseuential element of the story that it didn't lessen my overall enjoyment at all

Characters The Hungry Tide

The Hungry TideAmerican marine biologist of Indian descent arrives in this lush treacherous landscape in search of a rare species of river dolphin and enlists the aid of a local fisherman and a translator Together the three. A fascinating and gripping read given an insight into a subaltern history In particular I enjoyed the exploration of language and who is given the ability to write history However there were slightly cringeworthy elements tacked onto the end of each chapter especially the final lines of the novel This cheapened the novel slightly and seemed a bit out of place
