    Kindle Cinnamon Gardens PDF EPUB ñ ½ pkv1me ½ cinnamon kindle, gardens book, Cinnamon Gardens KindleHistorical novel set in 1920s Sri Lanka Ceylon as was with two vaguely connected stories the secretly gay married man and his younger proto feminist cousin who wants to be a teacher It's well written and I liked the vivid depiction of place and time a great deal I knew nothing of the history of Ceylon but was unsurprised to learn the British made a mess of it but there just isn't enough plot It's like a slice of life the stuff that happens in a year without any driving plotline or even any big changes Stuff happens but in the end everyone is or less where they started albeit having learned something Ultimately unsatisfying for me though a character driven reader would doubtless take a different view

    Kindle Cinnamon Gardens PDF EPUB ñ ½ pkv1me ½ cinnamon kindle, gardens book, Cinnamon Gardens KindleI found this a fascinating read partly because I had only just finished “Burmese Days” by George Orwell and the parallels are easy to see even though it was obvious that they come from completely different directions Both books deal with the English Raj – one in Burma one in Ceylon – but one is written from the point of view of the priviledged and ruling whites whilst Cinnamon Gardens is written from the point of the view of the privileged native population of CeylonI knew next to no
