    1. Brilliant first novel by Poile Sengupta. Inga starts slowly like all novels do in a maze of characters, but explodes mesmerisingly in between to build up a beautiful climax. Poile is brilliant as well as brutal at times in her treatment of culture, men and tradition throughout the book - brilliant in the form of humour which is peppered through every second or third sentence and brutal in the condemnation of the orthodox traditions which forbids a girl from doing anything other than what the eld [...]

    2. If you haven't read this book already- what are you waiting for? Inga is beautifully written- and revloves around the lives and struggles of Rapa, and Inga- both Tamil Brahmin women in the 60s- when life was a little slower (and more oppressive for the women in question). Rapa lives in Delhi, keeps a journal and writes stories. Inga is the younger cousin left behind in the village. They share an interesting relationship- Rapa is fascinated by Inga's story- talking about her in her journal and wr [...]

    3. I loved the book, “Inga”. It had an almost ‘unputtdownable” quality about it because of the fine thread of suspense that runs right through the book. I took just 2 days to read through it, which is saying a lot since I always have a million other things to do!! Inga draws on the author’s childhood and early days in a traditional tambram household, which brought back vivid memories of my own days spent in my grandparents’ house in Chennai, the long summer holidays spent eating raw man [...]

    4. Inga is a great read,I finished it in 2 days. The book is not a thriller, far from it, but there is a suspense which is maintained through the book, which makes you want to reach the end. The whole family at Komala Nivas,from Great Aunt Kuppai downwards,is a family which has its own politics,a strict adherence to customs,is very caste consciousness,and has fixed notions about the behaviour expected from the women of the family. The book is not written in the orthodox style of a book, instead dra [...]

    5. My third visitation and Inga is as intriguing, delightful and mouth wateringly detailed as it was the first time, if not more.Poile Sengupta ingeniously weaves this complex tapestry of a southern Indian family surrounding that odd girl among the evens, with devices that make one sit up and jump with joy.The book certainly makes one nostalgic and the innocence that sprouts every so often is heartbreakingly beautiful. But it does not just remain a thing of beauty, it does so much more. It talks to [...]

    6. Reading this book took me all of two days!!A fantastic story of a little girl, this book is very gripping. It touches the vast diaspora or rural India during the post independence era and politely reminds us how relationships and unnecessary customs precede what one would treat as really important in life. The detail is lively and transports you quite literally to the happenings during the time. The author classically details various styles and english authorsFantastic story and leaves you absor [...]

    7. I struggled hard on how to rate this book. Some parts of it are absolutely 5-star writing. The tongue in cheek humor about Brahmaniac families and their impenetrable web of rules and regulations, the accurate descriptions of being caught between two worlds as a western-educated Indian.But some parts are just weird. The almost magical hold Inga has over people, the hazy sexuality of Rapa. In some ways its reminiscent of The Color Purple, but with a heavy infusion of coconut oil.

    8. It was a drag at times. I skipped pages. However, I loved the light humor. Especially when the author explains "adakkam". Can totally relate to it! I laughed aloud :D The climax was unexpected. Overall it was OK. Wonderful attempt for a debut novel.
