A stunning novel set in modern India, sometimes funny, often shocking, mostly heartbreakingly sad. At times it is almost unbearable to witness the characters' unending struggle for a minimum of security and wellbeing. Whenever things start looking up, fate deals them another cruel blow. There is no happy ending but - strangely - the one person who still has reason for hope gives up while those whose life's dreams are utterly shattered carry on, seeming to have found the fine balance between hope and despair.

A story you just jump into and can't let go. It goes through many emotions, sad, funny and just crazy sometimes! The characters lives intertwine with one another in a wonderful way! You start to enjoy how the story comes together when outside interferences begin to change their lives and as in real life poses new problems as each of them have to struggle with.

Von Ein Kunde am 22. Januar 1998

I obviously missed the point of A Fine Balance. Other readers here have raved about how this novel captures "that fine balance between hope and sorrow," etc., but what I read was an incredibly depressing story about a few characters with hopeless lives who are subject to endless acts of pain. In the beginning it wasn't so bad -- I thought, "Okay, here are a few nasty things that these characters have to deal with. It's all part of the character and plot development." But IT NEVER ENDS, and eventually any progress that the characters or the story actually achieve comes crumbling down under the weight of the ridiculous events that the characters are made to endure. Near the end, I started skipping the acts of torture out of sheer annoyance. I wish someone would enlighten me about what really makes this book so wonderful.

"A fine balance" starts with slightly confusing and totally unnecessary time shifts which fail to give the story dynamics or some kind of percieved structural quality the author might have intended and is just a little annoying. But this is not too bad since the main characters quickly win the readers heart and suck him into the story.
Unfortunately it is the storyline that lacks quality: too many bad things happen to the same people - this is no more credible. The end is simply not only sad but depressing. I suppose Mistry just wanted to include too many of the ugly aspects of Indian life in one book. He certainly is capable to write a great novel but failed this time.
Well, it is just a novel, a made-up reality, maybe Mistry`s one. But it is not mine. I have seen a lot of hardship and poverty in India, but there is much more than that. My India fascinates by its huge and cruel contrasts. Mistry only shows the dark sides.

first of all: this book IS magnificent ...

during my stay in India I have read a lot of books by those very gifted contemporary Indian authours like Rushdie, Kiran, Gosh, Suri among others.

A fine balance is one of the most beautiful, terrific, hilarious and epic of all of them.
There are a lot of reviews already that try to recommend that book - i strongly support them.
In case somebody is searching for others intelligent and interesting, humorous and sad books I highly recommend "the age of shiva" by Manil suri, too.
I loved that book almost the same way I did and do "a fine balance".
in my opinion, the intelligent, sad but hilarious at the same time, and profound descriptions of situations, moments and people by Indian authors is kind of unique in the English speaking literature of our times.
I will read a fine balance and the age of shive many, many times and will dive into the sophisticated world of Indian novels again and again ...
enojoy!

While I read through this long book pretty quickly because it is clearly written, and it is good in terms of letting you visualize the scenes and characters, I found it to be too preachy and steinbecky. Some bad things happen, then some more bad things happen, then some bad people do bad things to good people, followed by worse things, horrible violent things, and a horrible thing. In between, some minor bad things happen, but there is a bit of humour here and there, plus some touching moments and the boy and the woman and the two tailors develop a friendship that seems a little too cartoony for me. There are interesting quirks throughout, I found Beggarmaster to be one of the best characters in the novel, and the landowners in the tailors' villiage to be the most one-dimensional. Mistry overwrote this book. When I see his collection of short stories from Firozha Baag, I realize that he is capable of creating much better pieces than this almost propaganda-like tradgedy. I give it 4 stars because of its ability to read and its genuine sympathy for human suffering. But that's generous.

A Fine Balance is, hands down, one of the best books I've ever read--and I read a lot! The cast of characters is Dickensian, the sweep of the narrative expansive. But the heart of this book is in the details, which are brilliantly wrought and which carry the reader straight into this seething, beautiful, and devastating world. I couldn't put this book down, and when I was finished, I just wanted to go back and start again. Mistry's "fine balance," between hope and despair, is portrayed with such an aching humanity; it brings brilliantly to life all those news reports from distant and difficult places that we see all the time on TV. This is a great and important book: It will not only keep you utterly engrossed from start to finish, but it will also enlarge your humanity.
