How do the tides, when gone wild, affect the people who drink from the ocean that gives them the water to grow their crops? What do the people feel when their homes are returned to the sand and water that were utilized to construct them? ? I was acquainted with all these questions when I first started reading The Hungry Tides by Amitav Ghosh. And later, I discovered the answers in the very same book. The book covers a wide range of topics, including dirty politics, love, sadness, betrayal, and other topics, all of which grabbed my heart. The unthinkable and undeniable struggle between nature and humanity, on the other hand, prompted me to put the book down and think about it. Ghosh has depicted the intricate interaction between nature, animals, and the people who are sometimes driven, and sometimes not, to live with them, in a very apparent and powerful way. As readers, we may witness the ebb and flow of the tides through the eyes of Piya and Kanai. The tiger's roar can be heard through Kusum and Moyna's ears. Through Nirmal and Fokir, we can hear and feel the riots and gunshots. The narrative is situated in the Bay of Bengal, and the author does an excellent job of describing the culture and environment.

This is one of my favorite novels, and I highly suggest it to everyone looking for a quality literature.
