A magnificent romantic/historical/adventure novel set in India at the time of mutiny. The Far Pavilions is a story of 19th Century India, when the thin patina of English rule held down dangerously turbulent undercurrents. It is a story about and English man - Ashton Pelham-Martyn - brought up as a Hindu and his passionate, but dangerous love for an Indian princess. It's a story of divided loyalties, of tender camaraderie, of greedy imperialism and of the clash between east and west. To the burning plains and snow-capped mountains of this great, humming continent, M.M. Kaye brings her quite exceptional gift of immediacy and meticulous historical accuracy, plus her insight into the human heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far Pavillions This is a superb book. I'm reading it for the second time after a long time thinking about it. If you love historical novels about India during British imperialism, you'll love this one. Very long, but worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The far pavilion This book was very long but full of interesting historical facts concerning India and Afghanistan. For me it shed some light on the happenings in that country in our day.
