This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. I This is a depressing book.

I was a little curious as to how the characters really are and whether the interpretations on TV or movies is actually real.

What then is the lure of Devdas, arguably a spineless character, loved by two powerful women? In the hands of Chattopadhyay the grandiosity of the love-triangle becomes an achingly beautiful piece of minimalist fiction. I am upgrading my rating from 3 stars to 5.

How to write a great review. Sep 29, Roewoof rated it really liked it. Parvati decdas Chandramukhi come across as much stronger in the book as well. Get married, Devdas, I want to see you married before I go.
