Having lived in Hyderabad for years, I was easily pulled in by this book. The narrative was really nice, the references and letters showed what India was like way before our times, and the descriptions painted over the current Hyderabad. I wish I could have been in Hyderabad or read this book while I was living there... I would have seen Banjara Hills, Golconda Fort, The Masjid and Hussain Sagar with new eyes. 

The verbal portraits of each British Company Employee, the Mughals and commoners were beautiful. And I like how Dalrymple included pictures and paintings in the book.

Its a great read.

    I get lost in books and live their lives until I turn the last page. I ponder a while, carry the laughter, shed a few tears and sigh. Then the thirst for more arises.
