Description
A modern classic, this epic tale of families, romance and political intrigue never loses its power to delight and enchant readers.

Vikram Seth's novel is, at its core, a love story: the tale of Lata - and her mother's - attempts to find her a suitable husband, through love or through exacting maternal appraisal. At the same time, it is the story of India, newly independent and struggling through a time of crisis as a sixth of the world's population faces its first great general election and the chance to map its own destiny.

'A Suitable Boy may prove to be the most fecund as well as the most prodigious work of the latter half of this century - perhaps even the book to restore the serious reading public's faith in the contemporary novel ... You should make time for it. It will keep you company for the rest of your life' Daniel Johnson, The Times

Hope it helps someone.

Beast (in number of a pages) of a book. I've had it sitting on my shelf in printed book format for nearly a decade - and still can't bring myself read it. Some day I will, but for now I have too many other things to do (plus, if I'm being honest - I just don't want to currently). Heat for the price, and paper saved.
Thanks Mat!!!
This is a true classic for every lit-lovers library. Gonna take a while to read it though...
Incredible price per page here - 0.066p
Read the paperback a few times, beautifully written, it is a slog but well worth it
amazing price for an amazing book. Nice one OP

Cheapest per page price indeed unless we consider the free books
Good book but huge in paperback. This was made for e-readers.

Hmm, don't think so (99p/1500 pages = 0.06p/page) - either way, phenomenal value
Cheers op. Wanted to read again but couldn't face the paperback paperweight. Now to get it on to my Nook...

That's as a fraction of a £ per page, not as a fraction of a penny!
