    One thought on “Train To Pakistan”

    1. This is one of the very first books of this kind that i am reading: A fiction based on a true historic event. And god damn i am impressed. This book preys on people like me (in a good sense) by portraying the thought process that the Indian society is driven by faith rather than logic. Besides all the messages it tries to convey, it is a very well written book in the first place. The characters are used appropriately and the ending is just phenomenal. I love how the author respects the readers i [...]

    2. Gelezen op aanraden van Naemha Tahir. Indrukwekkend en afschuwelijk verhaal over een vreedzaam dorp met moslims en sikhs door elkaar, dat meegesleept wordt door slachtpartijen elders. Tamelijk deprimerend hoe iedereen zijn eigen hachje wil redden, maar met een prachtig hoopvol einde.

    3. Even though I have a memory of hearing about partition (I was a kid in LA) it took reading “Train to Pakistan” to drive home the scale of its tragedy. Singh’s fictionalized take on Partition is believable, compelling and accessible, even for a westerner. An important, powerful story well told.

    4. Highly recommended Interesting story about a despicable time in history not too long ago. Author brings this story to life with the characters and shows how this could have happened
