Review

A Hundred Little Flames is an out of the box story for many reasons. I particularly liked the way characters strengthen page after page. The letters in the prose add a great substance and the entire setting of the story is described beautifully, be it Kerala or Pondicherry. The people, weather, landscape, local delicacies and every little detail mentioned shows the amount of research that has gone into the making of the plot. Just reading about them made me want to visit these places and meet those people. Many a times we end up reading a book because it was recommended by someone we know or there are many people talking about it, but I pre-ordered this one knowing the amount of delight the author puts into her writing which is wonderfully contagious and thus serves the purpose. I had a teeny weeny issue with the number and sequence of letters that filled up the last part of the book and the sudden turn of events in the end which seemed like a deliberate climax. More importantly I like the way the story tries to convey a very important message, to look at relationships beyond what we think they are. There is more to an individual than how they are related to us. This was such a great learning lesson. --ByRaksha Bhaton 22 November 2017

It is a very good book and the content reflects the real situation. I wish all students or children living away from grand parents should definitely read this book. It consists of a love story that I have not imagined in my life. Such a pure and heart touching story which is very different from all contemporary love stories, filled with romance and lust. I'm myself studying away from home, felt an urge to visit my grandparents while reading the book --By Tejasree on 27 November 2017

An emotional book. Also depicts the difference of love of yester years with current. A generic read.... wants to integrate present generation of thought with the old one and minimizing generation gap. Every one will love the the character Gopal Shanker and the noble lady Rohini. An emotional touch --By Partha pratim bose on 10 January 2018

Product Description

Sometimes, a journey back is a step forward.

When 26-year-old Ayan is sent to live with his grumpy old grandfather Gopal Shanker, in a tiny village, in Kerala, he is understandably devastated. What can a sleepy, idyllic village without even Internet connectivity offer a young man?

To make matters worse, Jairaj, Ayan’s domineering father has his own plans and is determined to have his way. Soon, Ayan has to come to terms with the hard realities of life and the blindness of greed as he and Gopal Shanker learn that life can sometimes unravel in unanticipated ways.

A young man, whose life lies ahead of him. An old man, whose life is all in the past. And a few months that change everything. A Hundred Little Flames is a charming account of a relationship across generations and also a meditative look at the issues of old people.

Preeti Shenoy’s foray into new fictional terrain is an absolute triumph!
