Comments The Bus Stopped

  1. And time stands stillould aptly have been the title of the book Yet again another novel in English by an Indian writer though this one is settled in Netherlands which is rich in painting a lyrical picture of small town India and its inhabitants And like a painting, the visualisation of static imagery appeals to the literary senses of the reader but that s where the bonding between the book and reader stops The characters have been developed but they haven t got any motive and without any motive [...]


  2. He has the voice The voice The voice that s important, and strangely like a person whom you have known for a long time, maybe that s just because he is an Indian Who cares The book works It does Maybe it worked for me cuz I read it on a long train ride and well, I want to read of Khair He has a voice strangely similar to Adiga but better in some ways.


  3. This is a book for people watchers It pulls fragments of people s lives together as they travel randomly on the same bus There were many small nuances I lay in bed thinking about after like that between the pious or self proclaimed religious character and the crude sinner who gave the charity most willingly.ese little asides make the story.


  4. It is written from many different perspectives although the story line is v simple a bus journey All the different characters with their own baggage literally and figuratively The language is simple yet descriptive and eloquent It s an easy read, and thought provoking


  5. I liked this a lot The emphasis is on perspectives and characters rather than plot, although the characters are sort of grouped around a bus journey from Patna to Phansa Khair shows us the whole tapestry of Indian society, from the wealthy business class to indigent tribals No one point of view is necessarily privileged although the author does confront the fact that maybe there is only so far he can take us into the lives of those from different walks of life from his own We see the effects of [...]


  6. After reading the first 40 or 50 pages of The Bus Stopped I was not sure I would like it especially with the introduction of a number of characters so quickly I thought the book to be confusing.However, the author Tabish Khair pulls all these seemingly disconnect threads into a tapestry of life that I won t soon forget I finished reading the book with the thought to reread it after the first of the new year as I will have returned from a trip to India which will include some bus trips as well.


  7. it is a multi threaded account of life in small towns of Eastern Indiauthfully depictedbut i was kind of missing a story line


  8. A well crafted book with interwoven Vignettes of several lives Only thorn is it is slightly hinting condescending in its nature.


  9. Boring, this book took a while to get going what s meant to be the middle takes place at the end and the overall impact of the so called climax is bland.


  10. Beautiful what is home it was a little choppy at parts not sure who was narrating but it all comes together


  11. Three out of ten.Bizarre stories about a group of people on a bus travelling through India No real story or plot and tenous links between the different characters.
