  • I sort of miss my romantic notions of the British Raj in India after reading this book. It was well written and painstaking with names and dates. Carefully it showed bits of society, bits of cause and effect, bits of everything that left you wanting to know more. (More in a vivid interesting way, not more in the way of names and dates of inconsequential lackeys, but I digress.)
