Sea of Poppies

Sea of Poppies (Ibis Trilogy, #1)Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Sea of Poppies offers vast imaginings in stunning, historically inspired detail, forming a lacework of converging stories.

Written in a voice that lends a wonderful perspective to the early days of Empire, the book gently exposes us to some of the rationales behind the manipulation of whole cultures in the name of  the grand colonial mission.

This book is  riddled with micro texture and macro insight.

Recently I added some books I have read over the last couple of years to the 'Goodreads' web site.

I'm going to try to integrate my interest in 'Goodreads' by using that format to review books, and we can then see if  it sits comfortably within this little 'phlog'..
