4 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Jose Espinoza am 9. Juni 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
I first read this book when I was about 14. It is truly one of the most unforgettable pieces of literature I have ever come across. It made me fall in love with India. It is, without a doubt, my favorite book. I have recommended it to friends many times. It will appeal to someone who loves romance novels, or action-adventure, or exotic locations. M.M.Kaye has managed to put so much of the essence of what India really was into this book that it transports you back in time to the days when she was an untamed creature fighting against British imperialism.

3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Beau Thurnauer am 8. April 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Whenever someone asks me what my favorite book is I ALWAYS say Far Pavilions. I read this book over 15 years ago and still remember the vivid scenes like I read it yesterday.
So why write this now? Well, my favorite books are almost all referred by someone else and I don't mean Oprah. In turn I like to share special reads with others. Like some other reviewers, I have wanted to go to India ever since I read this. I can picture the mountains, I can smell the back streets, I can feel the tension and I can't even remember the entire plot.
I'm a visual kind of guy. If the author describes it and I can see it I will remember forever. This happened over and over again in FP. The visual images are burned into my brain. I love them.

3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ein Kunde am 3. August 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
I was very taken by the characters, but I don't feel Kaye writes from the male perspective necessarily well. I was also distraced when the story of Ash was largely set aside in the last 300 pages, 200 of those spent on a battle scene with a predetermined ending. After page 900 (my 1970s copy runs to 1200 pages) I felt like I was reading an enormous epilogue.
On the good side, which is much larger than the bad, although I've never visited India I felt I had after having read this novel. Her descriptive passages were magnificent and the characters as a whole were very well drawn. I recommend this novel as a classic in historical Asian fiction.

Von Ein Kunde am 4. Oktober 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
M.M. Kaye's "The Far Pavillions" depicts nineteenth-century India with vivid--and occasionally tugid--language, displaying the struggles of its peoples through a omniscient viewpoint that chances along all spectrums of class and creed, Hindi, Muslim, British, and a score of "lesser" viewpoints. Often this technique can overwhelm an author of lesser talents, leaving his or her work a mess of conflicting POV with little balance. M.M. Kaye handles such difficulties with appearent ease--but in the end, it overcomes her novel.
The first 3/4ths of the book is captivating material. Through the eyes of Ashton, "The Far Pavillions" gives the reader an intimate portrait of India, detailing the various climate and culturial differences between the nothern and southern latitudes. Yet the last 300 pages almost totally concentrate upon the British mindset in the invasion--and attempted colonization--of Afganistan. Though the battles are bloody and at times breath-taking, one cannot help but wonder why the main protagonist--who's 600-page slew of tragedies and triumphs have come to dominate our perspective of this work as a whole--is set to the side for a few officers whose intentions, well meaning but flawed, serve to exemplfy the worse of European attitude toward foriegn civilization. The last 1/3 of the book is not bad, just ill-suited as the book careens into a far-too-abrupt ending.
Personally, I believe Kaye should have finished "The Far Pavillions" with a more satisfactory conclusion for the main character (the books hints throughout that it will detail his life as a whole, not the twenty-three or so years is actually covers) and used the other 300+ pages as a "companion" novel.

Von aeasee am 6. November 2012
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Reading this book was a wonderful experience. Kaye takes you on an adventurous journey throughout India back in the time when the British Crowne still had a strong hold on its fate. This is a part of world history with which I wasn't really familiar, but it definitely shows a lot of potential for a captivating story! I'm glad that Kaye decided on putting her story in this particular setting as it was a whole new world (and time) for me. A world in which you can still encounter the old magical, colorful India how it is often imagined: Beautiful princesses and allmighty maharajahs in huge palaces, the overwhelming Himalayan mountains and striking countrysides... This book is a real goldmine for your imagination! I read it while I was travelling through India and it helped me to get a glimpse of its history and feel totally absorbed by the country.

I didn't rate this book with 5 stars because the beginning seemed to me quite slow. But it is definitely worth reading the first chapters because you get to know the wonderful characters and some experiences of the main character unfold their consequences later in the story - and it is on! Suddenly I was barely able to put the book aside and really looked forward to reading the next few chapters.

3 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von "katyhal" am 26. Mai 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
I had the good fortune of coming across this book in an old, dusty used book store when I was 13. Although the size of the tome was intimidating at first, a recent read, Gone With the Wind, convinced me to "not judge a book by its cover" or in the case, its size. This book is wonderfully written: the main subject matters of love and war are universal, the history lesson superb. After reading The Far Pavillions, I went in search of other M.M.Kaye books. I was not disappointed after reading Trade Wind and Shadow of the Moon. I highly recommend Ms. Kaye's books to anyone who enjoys being transported to a different time and place, and anyone who wants to read a story that is unforgettable.
