Read full description of the books:



Este livro esteve na "shortlist" do Booker Prize 2008 e foi também considerado o "Melhor Livro de 2008", segundo o 'San Francisco Chronicle', 'Chicago Tribune', 'Washington Post', etc. Ambientado na Índia do século XIX, este romance histórico desenrola-se nas vésperas da primeira Guerra do Ópio. No coração da saga está um navio de escravos: o Ibis, que recruta indianos para as plantações de cana-de-açúcar mas principalmente para o transporte de ópio para os consumidores chineses. Com uma tripulação constituída por uma mistura heterogénea de marinheiros, passageiros clandestinos, trabalhadores asiáticos e condenados, Ibis terá como destino uma longa e tumultuosa viagem pelo oceano Índico. Considerado "avassalador" pelo 'The Guardian', não lhe poupam elogios como o 'The Observer': «Uma saga de extraordinária riqueza... com muita acção e aventura à la Dumas, mas com momentos de grande profundidade à maneira de Tolstoi - e um toque de sentimento como em Dickens.». Autor de "bestsellers" internacionais, The Hindu considera o "Mar de Papoilas" o trabalho mais bem conseguido do autor: «Ghosh escreveu vários romances notáveis, mas "Mar de Papoilas" é indiscutivelmente o melhor.»
