    " As a work written in his time, this is truly ground-breaking. It is well written (hence the reason it's a classic!) and the characters are developed in a most believable way. What I did not like was the fact that I couldn't relate, and therefore couldn't empathise with any of them. Not that surprising I suppose. Even so, I felt as though this novel was more of a work of art than a 'good read'. Aside from the court case, not a whole lot happened, and, through my own personal choice, I don't like that in a book, or a film either, come to that. I didn't leave the book with a feeling that something had been resolved, or dwelling on the characters, but it did make me think about colonial India, and all its consequences. "

    " A great read - takes place a few decades before India's independence from the British. A English woman accuses an Indian man of rape. Even though she is not a racist and was friendly with this man when she befalls to violence she accuses one of them. I enjoyed both the movie and book and found it scary how misunderstandings can cause such turmoil. "

    " I finally realized why this is such a classic. Foster is a master of prose. A most read for all of those interested in fiction and the social interactions between different races, social classes and religions. "

    " This is one that I've wanted to read for a while, and I must say that I wish that I had read it in college when I was in the hight of my intellectual brain (vs. my current out-of-critical-thinking-practice mommy brain). I'm definitely glad I read it for a book club, however, so that I had other people to throw ideas around with. One thing that I loved about this novel is that one could easily trade out any number of scenarios from our own country to still feel the relevance of this book today (race relations of white America vs. Native Americans, African Americans, and even post-9/11 Muslim stereotypes today). Some of the reading is slow going, but I enjoyed that the novel covers both sides of the racial divide, neither side is perfect, and the variety of characters means that you could probably identify (at least partially) with at least one character.
