    1. [9/10] There was a house once whose garden I knew, every last tree, and where the stairs had chipped away and which of the windows would not shut. The ophtalmologist asked me once, "Do foreign bodies ever interfere with your vision? Floating black specks?" And I thought, not bodies, houses, and not foreign, ground into my blood. This is most of all a beautiful story about dreams, desires, hopes, longings – if you want, you can call it another atlas of clouds, less gimmicky, more heartfelt as i [...]

    2. هل للحنين أطلس نعم إن كان له صورا وأشكال وفي الرواية كان للحنين اشكالا عدة على مدى أجيال ثلاثة تعاقبت على الرواية عاشت فترة الاستعمار البريطاني ثم الاضطرابات السياسية التي غزت الهند وأدت إلى انقسامها إنها رواية الطبقات الاجتماعية ونظرة المجتمع تجاه المنبوذ ، رواية الحب وال [...]

    3. Seeking solitude and a niche for himself, Amulya moves to the idyllic village of Songarh, and sets up a factory that manufactures authentic herbal potions from the unique plants of the region. As much as Amulya appreciates Songarh, his family, especially his wife, dearly misses the bustling life of Calcutta. Her loneliness is an implacable longing. The longing starts there. Each person has his or her own deep longing, and grapples to fill the void caused by it. Due to the stringent rules imposed [...]

    4. Тази книга беше за мен една изключително приятна изненада. Прекрасна семейна сага и портрет на Индия и индийското общество и нрави в периода от 20-те до 50-те години на XX век. За мен е тя в пъти по-добра като стил и повествование от "Оризовата майка". На моменти ми напомняше стил [...]

    5. أطلس الحنين المستحيل أنورادا روي تدور أحداث الرواية في الهند بين عامي 1920 و1950 .وعلى لسان ثلاث شخصيات تتواصل أحداث الرواية الحياة في الريف والعلاقات العائلية ، التعقيدات الإجتماعية ، لاحقاً الحياة في العاصمة ، والعلاقات بين الطوائف الدينية والجو العام قبل الإستقلال وانقسام [...]

    6. تنجح روي في القبض على اهتمامي من اول الرواية والاحتفاظ به مشتعلا حتى النهاية. هذه قصة عن الحب أولا، وعن الارواح الهائمة في متاهات سعيا وراء الاهتمام وخلف حب لا تستطيع ادراكه لأسباب تختلف، من الفروق الطبقية كما هو الحال مع موكوندا اليتيم مجهول الابوين، أو من الألم المضن للفقد [...]

    7. When I took note of this book, I had mistook the author as the one who had written The God Of Small Things. In case you are in the same pickle, these are different authors - the other being Arundhati Roy. Close, but not the same. And it becomes obvious when I opened to the first page of An Atlas Of Impossible Longing when typical prose greets me instead of the lyrical joie de vivre of words that The God Of Small Things had.But this is not supposed to be a comparison piece. So I'll get on with th [...]

    8. It requires a bit of courage and ability to write a sad story without actually making the reader depressed. I think that is the most commendable part of Anuradha Roy's writing.This book makes you sad, but it is not depressing. And I loved the Bengali village scenario and the pre-Independence era portrayed set in West Bengal. One of the best novels written in an Indian setting :) Verdict:Great Read.

    9. An atlas of impossible longing happened just naturally for author Anuradha Roy. The novel grew out of an image of a large house half-submerged by a river. It was a haunting photograph of an actual house that had to be abandoned by her aunt’s family.The book starts in 1907 and goes right up to the 1950s. It traces in its pages the lives and travails of a family over three generations. Amulya is quite a reticent man. A visit to a small town of Sonagarh changes his perception completely. He feels [...]

    10. An Atlas of Impossible Longing by by Anuradha Roy is without a doubt the best book I have read in the past six months! It is the kind of book that stays with you throughout the day. The kind of book that resonates within your mind as you think, feel, breathe, do your daily chores. The kind of book that makes you stop and take notice of things around you that you would not otherwise stop and take notice of.An Atlas of Impossible Longing is really three books in one telling stories of three distin [...]

    11. The Good Stuff * Beautifully almost lyrically written.* The landscape feels so real you could reach out and touch it. * You can feel the authors love for the countryside * This is not my sort of book, so please if you think you will like it, go get it, the author has talent. Check out the more positive reviews from other people listed below * Some light humour - enjoyed the swearing birdThe Not so Good Stuff * This one was a painful read for me as I just couldn't get into it, but too stubborn to [...]

    12. 4.5 stars. Just finished this wonderful book and I immediately want to be back in between those pages, in Bengal, with those characters that I fell in love with. You can click on the book and read what it's about, I won't detail that on here. This is not a fast paced story. The writing is so so beautiful, almost poetic. It has been described to be flowery but I didn't think so at all. I adore stories that span generations and are told over a long period of time; this novel does just that in an e [...]

    13. What if a book offers you all those things which you have read and liked that is what this book brought for me a Bengali author, setting of 1920s India, serenity of rural Bengal, hustle-bustle and noise of Calcutta, old mansions, story of three generations, family feuds, partition and Hindu Muslim relationships and fading British era, All this sounded clichés but the newness of this novel is what makes it unique. Each aspect, character and moment is so well thought and well phrased that it cre [...]

    14. بدء كل شئ في بيت وحيد مشرف على الغابات في سونغارة، وانتهي كل شئ في بيت وحيد في مانهاربور،كحلم بداية بكنابالا الزوجة والام ثم السيدة بارنوم نهاية بباكول وموكندافي البداية ظننت انني ساتابع قصة كنابالا الزوجة ثم اتخذت القصة منحي بوليسي فتوقعت ان نتابع تقصي الجريمة، لكننا تابع [...]

    15. An excellent book! Very well written! The story line had me mesmerized. I empathised with all the characters which means that the author captured the essence of the person. One could see the progression of insanity in Kananbala and understand why she became how she did. I liked the beginning more than the ending. It is a love story and I wonder if the author tried to rush into ending the story at the end. I was dissapointed that Mukanda did not do more for Suleiman Khan. Mukanda did come out as [...]

    16. A simple, well-narrated story set in the modern day West Bengal, starting in Colonial India of the 1920s, and ending in the 50s. I got a glimpse of the ordinary lives without much mention of the political upheaval of those days, except for a passing mention of the partition. I got acquainted with a myriad of characters; Mukunda- the orphan, Bakul his playmate, and Nirmal Babu, her father , staying fresh in my memory. Loved the cultural and regional cuisine references.

    17. I read this several years ago, but having recently finished Roy's new Booker-nominated 'Sleeping on Jupiter', I wanted to re-visit it. It didn't disappoint. It's a deeply moving and beautifully written saga that covers the history of a Bengali family over 3 or 4 decades. The prose is astonishing accomplished, the characters vivid and varied, and doesn't betray any of the foibles common to a first novel.

    18. جميلة وخلال ٥٠٠ صفحة لايمكن للملل أن يتسلل إليك بل شيئا ما يجذبك إليها ربما كمية الحنين فيها

    19. An Atlas of Impossible Longing - The title of this book alone drew me in; that and I'm partial to books about India. This is a fine book on many levels and I was not disappointed. It's a multigenerational novel, a great love story, a cross-cultural learning experience, and a book about yearning, hope, loss, money and betrayal. It captures the big themes of life and does a great job of keeping the reader turning the pages.The story starts out in 1907 when Amulya takes his family from Calcutta to [...]

    20. It did not end the way I expected. And the last part is best in this modestly-paced novel of 20th century India.In An Atlas of Impossible Longing, publisher-writer Anuradha Roy (not to be confused with Arundati Roy, author of The God of Small Things) traces one family's dysfunction through three generations, offering up a tale of caste and ill-fated love and decaying houses. It begins with patriarch Amulya's decision to move from Calcutta to a small town in Bengal to build a stately home in the [...]

    21. Many adjectives come to mind when reading Anuradha Roy’s novel. Exquisite is one of them. And also: bittersweet. Evocative. Poignant. Intimate. Masterful. Delicate. I would even say “magical”, but that adjective has been overused again and again to the point of becoming suspiciously empty of meaning. The title of the novel gives away the wistful atmosphere and tone of the book: An Atlas of Impossible Longing is a family saga filled with such melancholy and evanescent sadness that they imbu [...]

    22. This book is filled with longing and heartache. From the beginning the wife’s hatred for her new home just hurt to read. Moving from a large busy city to a small rural community is hard on her and yet her husband takes no notice. The children and the marriages of those children were happy occasions that a few years later would suddenly fill with loss. The mother loses her mind in the process of all this misery. Will any of the people in this house be happy? The description of the homes, ruins, [...]

    23. The story was enjoyable. Of course there were no earth shattering events or extreme drama but it was the story of a normal family. A busy dad Amulya, his wife Kananbala so affected by loneliness that she almost goes insane, the eldest daughter-in-law Manjula who yearns to have a child of her own, the youngest son and archaeologist by profession Nirmal, Bakul his daughter and the almost adopted child of the family Mukunda. I enjoyed that the book was essentially 3 stories written as if they were [...]

    24. Occasionally a reader finds a book that suits one's pleasure, not as in leisurable pleasure, but in style and substance. First off, it's well written. Second, it's well edited and published. The cast of characters in front and glossary in back were wise additions. Thirdly, the story is interesting, compelling and intelligent. And fourth, Roy uses ingenuity that works - in switching point of view in the third section. At first I found this jarring, but somehow she made it work. Wonderful characte [...]

    25. I've just finished this book, which I read cover-to-cover in about 4 days.I thoroughly enjoyed the read: the book is well-written, the story engaging, and it proved to be a good companion during hot, crowded bus trips and late, sleepless nights in South India. (I suspect that the story was engaging partially because I read it in India; something about reading a book where it takes place makes a reader more engaged, makes one feel like the story is much more alive)That said, I'm not sure I am sat [...]

    26. "An Atlas of Impossible Longing" is a title that draws a reader's interest. Set in India during the mid- 20th century the novel tells the story of loves lost in a culture of occupation under the Raj, revolution, Partition and Independence. The descriptions of taste, of smell, of heat, rankness and rot, are beautifully written and reflective of India. ( the glossary at the end helps those of us unfamiliar with terms and references). Nonetheless the "impossibility" of the longing, the relentlessne [...]

    27. An Atlas of Impossible Longing could have been a great book. It deals with the improbableness of human longings and dreams when held up against reality and human selfishness. Each character longs for something he/she cannot have, and cannot or will not enjoy what they do have. Unfortunately, several things let the book down. While the author has full command over the language and writes beautifully, her writing does not flow and often seems contrived. This in turn affects the story. I had to str [...]

    28. Don't you just love a book that gets better page by page? As I started this book, I thought it was just another Indian family saga. And so it seemed for perhaps almost the first half. It was good, I was enjoying reading it, but it wasn't special. Then things changed and the second half of the book went up a level.All the way through, the characters in this book feel alive and real. And so do the places. It is excellent writing. But once the story starts to focus on one specific character (no spo [...]

    29. I had never heard of Anuradha Roy when I picked up this book, but I am glad to have found her. Reading the book is like being transported to the India she describes, with all its sights, sounds and smells. The story alludes to the effects of many old Indian customs (which may well still exist) and, while the impact of these often blights people's lives, this is not a dreary book. The tone of the book is gentle and sympathetic. I believe Anuradha Roy likes her characters, despite all their idiosy [...]

    30. This multigenerational family saga that takes place in India during the early- to mid-20th century was a pleasant surprise. The plot was intriguing, the characters were well developed, and I learned a lot about the Indian culture during that period. The author thoughtfully provided a cast of characters in the beginning for reference (the names were confusing and hard to tell apart), as well as a glossary of many of the unfamiliar words, both of which helped immensely with my overall comprehensio [...]
