    One thought on “In The Country Of Deceit”

    1. I Just love Shashi Deshpande’s writing, her prose are always enchanting to read it gives me immense pleasure to read her works, which are ‘simple and sophisticated ’ at the same time! She writes about ordinary people, about their loneliness, their emotions, their agony, their helpless situations in life. Her characters are easily relatable or should I say they are ‘there’, they are ‘real’!In the Country of Deceit is a story about Devayani the main protagonist who lives independentl [...]

    2. Although Mrs. Deshpande's language is not particularly evocative or ebullient, she always manages to get the writing just-right. This is yet another excellent book, beautifully written to evoke an incredible sense of empathy with the protagonist. The book is written in the first person, interspersed with correspondence between her and various main figures. This tool makes the writing even more real, as the reader is simply given the letter, mostly without analysis.The story revolves around the d [...]

    3. 'Love is an idea' or is it? And who decides what is right and what is not? The novel is about 'adult love'- as the author herself says in an interview. Two individuals fall in love despite being restricted by the society's norms. Usually in popular media, the major reason why lovers fail to unite at the end is death - one of them dies. But in the real world, there are dozens of other 'reality checks' which can prevent them from being together. What if you meet the right person at the wrong time [...]

    4. The book keeps you captivated till the end. You can relate to the characters very well and most emotions are just as in real life. For instance when Devayani decides to give up on Ashok and prays for Arjun to get alright and I loved the letter that Shree writes to Devayani, very touching. Overall an excellent read the author leaves you asking for more

    5. Well a different type of novel. Enjoyed reading it.Questions about Love - how different people perceive it? remain after reading it.

    6. Good well written, liked the independent nature of the heroine, somehow felt the book lacked depth. Could have been much better

    7. Account of an eventful period in the life of a single woman living in a small city. Narration keeps you hooked till the end. Few passages about love/life really beautiful
