    So many of these are classics that you cannot but love them. Though I didn’t like White Tiger so much. Do agree with you about most of the rest. I am actually waiting to read the Flood of Fire by Amitav Ghosh. Will like to see how fiery it is after the stormy Sea of Poppies, the indolent River of Smoke.
    Thanks, Preeti, for the list.
