The Hungry Tide

In de Golf van Bengalen ligt een uitgestrekte archipel van eilanden de Sundarbans genaamd In dat gebied vermengen de wateren van de Himalaya zich met het inkomend getij van de zee Dagelijks verdwijnen duizenden hectaren oerwoud in het water om uren later weer droog te vallen De plaatselijke kol The true tragedy of routinely spent life is that its wastefulness does not become apparent till it is too late This uote does not reflect the theme of this book but it caught my eye in this green covered book in my hand when today I was flipping its pages thinking what to write about it It s tea time and there is a tray ready on a side table with two pieces of cookies A suirrel on the wall of the garden is eating something in a ravenous way I have no idea what is that something it s scanty for my eyes but it must be something very delicious which can be assumed by observing the way this little creature is feeding itself using both its hands fleetly and effectively In fact for the past few days I am routinely spending my time this way only in the evening A finished book in my hand at tea time I thinking something to write about it on GR Two routinely placed cookies on the side table A suirr

Rzoek doen in de uitgestrekte en gevaarlijke Sundarbans en laat zich daarbij begeleiden door Fokir een ongeletterde man uit de omgeving Kanai wordt haar vertaler Vanaf dat moment begint het tij te keren Piya's zoektocht naar de biologische omstandigheden wordt vooral een zoektocht naar zichzelf This book was written well before Sea of Poppies It was a fairly interesting story set in an area of Eastern India in a labyrinth of tiny islands known as the Sundarbans where settlers live in fear of drowning tides and man eating tigersIt was almost of a documentary giving interesting facts about the history of the settlers how the government fought them using this ground how they eked out a living there and were sometimes eaten by Tigers Dang tigers The story of the American Marine biologist from Seattle there to study two rare species of Dolphins and her relationship with two local fellows a fisherman and a translator was a bit too tame for me No real meat in the story But it was interesting and I could see Ghosh starting to develop some of the skills that lead him to write the amazing Sea of Poppies trilogy

    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

    One of Amitav Ghosh's best books I would say The setting of the book is in the 'Sundarbans' in Eastern India– a vast forest in the coastal region of the Bay of Bengal and considered one of the natural wonders of the world
