Kurzbeschreibung

Haunted by dreams of an unforgettable loss, Rahul, a young man of thirty living in San Francisco, suddenly becomes secretive and withdraws from his partner Andrew. When Andrew discovers that Rahul is still interviewing girls sent by his parents for an arranged marriage, he gives Rahul an ultimatum—stop living a lie, or give up their relationship. In response, Rahul tells Andrew a story. About a boy who lived in a palace. A boy named Rahul.

Set in San Francisco today and in India in the early 1970s, My Magical Palace is a sensitive tale about a boy’s coming of age, and the many hurdles he must cross to heal and find himself.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Hmmmm!!! 22. März 2014
Von Manu
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I found this book quite interesting. I lived in India for almost 6 months and i could relate to a lot of situations somehow. The story begins quite well and holds your interest till the end. The writing style and the character developement ist great.

However the book ends so abruptly that it almost disappoints you. The Author develops the story with great detail till the character Rahul is around 16 years old and ends or rather writes off his puberty, his life in a new city & in the US before Andrew in 2 pages??

Why such hurry??

Overall a great read..... I just wish that the author had spent just as much time on the ending as he did on the beginning.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sensitive, particular reaching the universal 14. März 2013
Von Jonathan Arnowitz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I do not write many reviews so it takes a pretty amazing book for me to write one. My Magical Palace is a moving account of a young man and a young India at a crossroads of self identity. The young man struggles with his gay identity, which is still incendiary in India judging by the book's controversial reception there. The book is not merely about a single character though, this is a richly populated world showing India in the 70's it's joys and it's foibles.
This book was not written for the US market, in that it does not always explain Indian references. This sent me on many occasions to the dictionary, Wikipedia and Google. The result is you get the unadulterated Indian experience instead of something Americanized or westernized. But that makes the experience of reading it all the more full of integrity and honesty. The story reaches deep into the personal so deep that it becomes universal. A great achievement and well worth the effort, it is a delightful read.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful settings, but somewhat unsatisfying. 12. Mai 2014
Von Estarianne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Without doubt this book paints beautiful picture of India in the 70s. The settings are beautifully detailed and very rich.

The characters start off pretty good. However, my feeling as the book progressed was that the main character dd not come off as a 13 year old boy. He struck me as closer to 8 or so. And beyond being naive, he seemed terribly incurious. The story start with him at 13 feeling his first attraction to men. More than a year later, he still has no idea what sex is and has never had an orgasm? Other kids had this information, but he was unable to figure anything out?

It strikes me that sometimes authors forget that their characters are supposed to live beyond the scenes experienced by the reader. If we read 2 or 3 hours of the life of a character, while a year has passed in the story, we expect the character to have done something with the experence in the off-page time. This character did not seem to. He didn't develop greater understanding or perspective, investigate unknown issues, or even play with himself. He was repeatedly victimized by others, yet was surprised every time it happened. He never considered ways to hide his secrets or be more discreet.

Additionally, I felt like the story built up to a tragedy that never materialized. It starts as though he needed to reveal a major trauma that resulted in nightmares and explained his inability to come out to his parents. It ends up as just a description of an unhappy and confusing time of life.

And I thought the boyfriend who prompted the story acted like a jerk (not because of his objection to being hidden, just in the way he spoke and dealt with things).

So I am going to say 3.5 stars. It is worth reading for the visuals. It is an interesting portrait of a culture in which family honor takes precedence over individual needs, and what happens when cultures clash. It also is a sad look at patriarchal societies and the effect they have on women.

This beautifully wrttien book will not only impress the read with the author's skill but his sense of humanity. The courage of his very vulnerable boy faced with such an intollerant culture will hopefully expand the humanity of us all.

I'm so glad I got this book! I enjoyed every moment of it. It is a world entirely different than my own. This was colorful, enchanting and heart warming. I loved reading before bed time. I would highly recomend it to any reader. Thank you Kunal for that magical journey.

Tender, haunting, and deeply touching, My Magical Palace is one of those books that stays with you. Beautifully written...the reader feels a sense of becoming part of the scenery, and the emotion that shines through is sometimes overwhelming. This is a highly impressive first novel, and I look forward to reading more of Kunal Mukherjee's work!
