Manil Suri’s debut novel, The Death of Vishnu (PEN/Faulkner Award nominee, 2002), satirized families in a single apartment building in Bombay. The Age of Shiva, about women’s subjugation, postindependence Indian politics, and Hindu-Muslim conflicts, offers a more panoramic view of Indian society. A few critics compared it to Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children, but The Age of Shiva is a smaller, tighter work, ambitious in scope if not as wholly successful

The Age of Shiva book. Which means, at certain points, The Age of Shiva touches the brilliance of V S Naipaul's A Home For Mr Biswas in portraying human despair and chaotic family life with all its colourful and despicable characters. The First things first.

My family needed paper in their printing business and her family owned lumber forests and a mill, so it was a logical match.

My family needed paper in their printing business and her family owned lumber forests and a mill, so it was a logical match e couldn’t keep her doll with her during the ceremony. I remember how she clung on to that doll, so tight that the arm ripped right off when her father tried to pull it away. It was nothing more than a threadbare piece of cloth, and the cotton stuffing burst out into the air. I remember thinking what a silly girl this was, and so obstinate as well-perhaps village girls were brought.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and wished there was a sequel when I came to the end. What happened next? I want to know. What I enjoyed most were the detailed sketches of everyday life in India, the wonderfully developed, invariably flawed, and often unpredictable characters, and the honesty with which the interactions between characters were portrayed. Death of Vishnu is still my favorite, but this was a real treat as well and for many of the same reasons.

I was very excited to see a new novel by Manil Suri, since I was completely taken by his first novel, "Death of Vishnu." The novel is completely focused on the female protagonist, Meera... including every nuance of her thoughts and feelings. And although individual sections are well-written (when Suri writes about food cooking, you can almost smell the chapattis... ), the book moves very slowly. And most striking for me.... I found her completely inappropriate relationship with her son... well, creepy.

"Death of Vishnu" was an extraordinary novel. To me, "Age of Shiva" is just another Indian novel which leaves the reader feeling sad and sorry for most if not all of the characters.

Good but discomforting. Perfect if you're interested in an overview of Indian history but the story line was no great for me. A friend who understands the myth was completely sold on it so I realize I didn't bring the depth of understanding to the book that I might have.

Answer: No.

I found The Death of Vishnu to be a masterwork. The Age of Shiva is a disappointing follow-up. I stuck it out, all the way through, hoping for something to make it worthwhile. No joy. I wish I had those ten evenings back.

I love Manil Suri's books. He is a fascinating storyteller, and you really get a clear picture on the characters.

I had read a review about the upcoming author, so expected more from it. The writing is very introspective, more like one would expect a woman to write (at the risk of sounding sexist).

A nice book to reread every year.
I truly loved the author's first book, the Death of Visnu. I was so let down by this one, after looking forward to reading it so much. It was depressing, a little creepy, and I became ever so tired of the main character. This is a gifted author. I hope he writes another book, this time expanding the context to other personalities, as he did in his first book.
