Product description

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 --This text refers to the paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Diary
By Devika ramadoss on 19 April 2018
I have read two of previous works of the author but they didnt impress me in any way.With the blurb I decided to give a try. And this is an emotional heart whelming novel. When a novel could be written with pure memories from a diary then this book gets a special place in that.Such a lovely narration by the author.

I didn’t expect the novel to be so emotional and convincing. It was different in many aspects. Every character was knitted according to the real world people. I could relate Velu character very much to the people in my native place. They will help their people whatever their situation they are in.

The strong and the main character is grandfather Gopal. He is not stubborn but still a rigid man. He is happy and content but still his memories haunts him. He is definetly a man of word, you will know what I mean when you read the end part of the book . The best portion in the novel is the dairy pages. Author didn’t play the part as a flashback scenes. I felt it as if I am reading a person’s diary. It was perfectly said through the words of Gopal and not with the Ayan words.

This book helps us to get to know the old age people mind and thoughts. It’s not the love and caring they want but sometimes we have to leave them with want they want. Gopal is of that sort. Ayan father was a typical day to day life father. Author took a controversial theme but gave a justice to that. Friendship exist forever in a relationship. The length of the book was really long. Could have reduced little short.

Overall “A Hundred Little Flames” will leave you with heavy heart and encourages you to have a long chat with your grandparents and understand them in a better way.
