Sea of Poppies – Amitav Ghosh

sea of poppies


Set prior to the first Opium war, on the banks of the holy river Ganges, this book portrays the characters as poppy seeds emanating in large numbers from the field to form a sea, where every single seed is uncertain about its future.

♥ “The text is sensory and thick with meaning. It seems to be a moving and significant work that needs to be read attentively and fully absorbed to be appreciated.” – Rachel
