After all how can any reality match the worlds that exist only in books? “This was my first Amitav Ghosh novel and I doubt it will be my last While the story touched on many prevalent issues ie climate change migration what I most appreciated was the way they were tied together We see the impact humanity has on the world both negative and pos
