To be honest if I was given this book by a person and they told me to read it, I would have put it down by the first chapter.

After he eats it, he immediately feels energized and transformed. Also, in the end, everything was ruined by a group of alcoholic monkeys. I never imagined Sampath to take such a downturn after the monkeys drunken rage. I would of never thought that the monkeys getting drunk would have been such a huge problem, but that moment resulted in a complete turnaround in the lives of all the citizens of Shahkot. He intended to keep his own involvement with such matters to the minimum, making instead firm progress in the direction of cleanliness and order.
With each new photograph he is fatter than before. Well there can never be a definite answer for that because society is made up of different individuals and its our ability to live and cope with each other despite our differences which actually makes us humane. Young Sampath is not successful at school nor work, hates being stuck in a post office job his father secured for him and longs to just be left alone.

I thought the story till now was interesting, though I'm still confused about the significanse of everything. He climbs a beautiful guava tree and decides that he belongs there. This had an absurd storyline with eccentric characters. She drew dishes that she had never eaten: a black buck suspended over a fire with a row of ingredients destined to transform it into magnificence; a peacock cavorting among cloves of garlic; a boar entangled in a jungle of papaya trees. Her brilliant, unorthodox cooking makes her a special lady in my eyes, and not a crazy one! Please blast me an e-mail if interested. She looked at the tiny creature in her hands, a creature that looked as if he had come from another planet altogether, or had been discovered in the woods, like something alien and strange. The characters are delectably quirky and ordinary in just the right measure, and the usage of magical realism, Rumi-meets-Tao-koans lines, bar cabinet raiding mon Replace Shahkot with Malgudi and it wouldn't seem out of place.
While there's great potential for a bollywood film, on paper, it's just not very interesting or worth the time. It filled up every bit of sky. I find it good that not everything is clear and that she is revealing and opening the story slowly. This book promised to be loads of fun and it was, helped generously by Desai's excellent prose. This boy, Sampat, can't cut it in the working world, so he runs away and decides to live in a Guava orchard. This is a quick read that packs a wallop!

Add to this a flair for storytelling and you have the uproarious, whimsical and occasionally stinging Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard. Twenty years of failure later, that unfortunately does not appear to be the case.
He bolts off the bus to an attractive orchard he sees in the distance. They teetered on their bicycles as they looked around for just another sight of that stomach extending improbably before her like a huge growth upon a slender tree. She stretched out her hands to feel the weight of the drops on her flat palms and then put her face out too, holding it, luminous, pale, in this town enclosed within the dark heart of the monsoon. So perhaps what the author really is trying to say is that everyone should live his life as humanely as possible with everything god has given him. As time passes, a mythology about Sampath begins to develop, and villagers come to sit under his tree, observe Sampath's tranquil state, and ask questions of Sampath. Filling their arms with their share of this booty, they ran up and down.
