A #CliFi that reads like a thriller! Ghosh in his inimitable style weaves stories within stories that reel you in tighter with every passing page. Almost every Book of his has transported me back in time. This was no different. But what‘s new to his writing is this sense of urgency. And rightly so. That I‘m yo-yoing between seasonal prompts of #Booked2019 is additional proof that #ClimateChangeIsReal. #SundarbansToVenice #TimeTravel #WeAreInNature

BarbaraTheBibliophage Thanks for the review. I think I‘ll go put this one on hold at the library. I‘ve been contemplating that, and you put me over the edge! 3mo
AppuNthebooks @BarbaraTheBibliophage 👍🏽 I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Despite its grave topic it‘s a hopeful book. 3mo

Just completed this ARC, courtesy of Netgalley. Ghosh is one of my favorite novelists and Gun Island focuses on climate change, migrations of refugees, power of myths and folklores, and the random workings of chance. It narrates how Dinanath Dutta‘s quest for a legend becomes a story of 17th century Venice, the Sunderbans in India, the travels of refuges, displacement and privilege, & the hope inherent in humanity. #SummersEndReadthom
