A most beautiful story
I have already listened to it twice and will be hearing it again. It's not just a beautiful story but a most detailed sketch of Indian society that is as much relevant today as it was for the period it was written in -- the issues are just as unresolved and relevant today. It illustrates the discussions we all need to be having now most urgently for genuine social reform.

I haven't but he is a great reader.
You can't make a film of this book -- it wouldn't do it justice I think.
I wish there were more English audiobook editions of Rabindranath Tagore's novels. I want to hear them all.
