Book Review: Maharani by Ruskin Bond | Of Books and Reading
She lives with her dogs and her caretaker, Hans, in an enormous old house in Mussorie, taking lovers and discarding them, drinking too much, and fending off her reckless sons who are waiting hungrily for their inheritance.
The seasons come and go, hotels burns down, cinemas shut shop, and people leave the hill station never maharnai return. Observing her antics, often with disapproval, is her old friend Ruskin, bind can never quite cut himself off from her.
Melancholic, wry and full of charm, Maharani is a delightful novella about love, death and friendship. This book is a character study of sorts. The book is basically about the Maharani and her life and lifestyle.
The other characters are mere shadows who flit around the Maharani of Mastipur. But the author, himself a character in the book is possibly the second most important character.
We also follow his life through the years, working in Delhi and keeping in touch with antics of the Maharani.
Maharani by Ruskin Bond – Book review
The book reminded of an old uncle or family friend telling a story about an eccentric friend or acquaintance. I loved that it chronicled the life of such an original character. She is a drinking, smoking, going from one man to another, party loving woman. She is basically a train-wreck and like all good train-wrecks she was a lot of bonr to read about.
The Whimsy Bookworm: A Book Blog from India: Review: Maharani by Ruskin Bond
I love stories about people who had a lot of money mahaarni lost it all because they were wild and foolish. I enjoyed reading this book. It was short and sweet. Funny in parts, even when it was talking about seriously tragic events. I loved reading about Royalty in India, even if the Royals in question were a small princely state and not the grand Royal families from Rajasthan.
