Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Best Exotic Marigold Hotel | Deborah Moggach
7 posts | 13 read | 12 to read
Now a major motion picture starring Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson, Billy Nighy, and Dev Patel When Ravi Kapoor, an overworked London doctor, reaches the breaking point with his difficult father-in-law, he asks his wife: Can t we just send him away somewhere? Somewhere far, far away. His prayer is seemingly answered when Ravi s entrepreneurial cousin sets up a retirement home in India, hoping to re-create in Bangalore an elegant lost corner of England. Several retirees are enticed by the promise of indulgent living at a bargain price, but upon arriving, they are dismayed to find that restoration of the once sophisiticated hotel has stalled, and that such amenities as water and electricity are . . . infrequent. But what their new life lacks in luxury, they come to find, it s plentiful in adventure, stunning beauty, and unexpected love."

I‘m aware the book might have some “problems” that weren‘t in the movie, but I adored the film so much that I had to buy the book.

I had a helper for this one.

Not only was this book a #booktosilverscreen, but after the success of the Judi Dench movie, subsequent editions changed the title to match the movie. (Original title tagged.) #janinbooks18 @bookisglee
