An Amazing book set in Calcutta

  • Book: Eden Gardens
  • Location: Kolkata (Calcutta)
  • Author: Louise Brown

Review Author: Charl



Calcutta is a city I’ve always wanted to visit and this book brought it to life so beautifully. The location descriptions are amazing, especially those of the back streets – most of the time I felt I could really hear, smell, and see all the incredibly vivid scenery. The story is amazing, wonderfully written and the characterisation superb.
