Jun 13, Arun S rated it really liked it "Chennaivaasi" - By the time you finished reading the book, you will feel like you are an chennaivaasi. Excellent characteristic narrations by author. Sure a page turner book.
Author moves in depth into the characters and shows the presence of them when they are required into the scenarios. Feb 01, Nandhini Sathyamurthy rated it really liked it Chennaivaasi is an engaging book to the reader upon two conditions.
Tirumurti and the story is engaging. Tirumurti brings the sights, smells and sounds of Chennai alive with his picturesque descriptions and lively narrations. The plot is neat and simple. The struggle that Ravi goes through to gain confidence of his family is well-narrated and not a tinge overdone. The traditions and customs of Tamil brahmins have been well portrayed and Debbie really does catch our sympathy and love!
The only sore patch in the entire book is the use of local language words here and there, which may confuse a non-native reader. To someone who knows tamil and belonging to TamBrahm community, this book would be a fine read. The ending comes unexpectedly, like a bolt out of the blue. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Would suggest it for a breezy, light one-time read.
The book according to me is a happy transformation to a Chennaivaasi. To his dismay, Ravi and Deborah moves in together :P Deborah, on the other hand, gets used of being stared in the streets of Chennai, understands Tamilans and their customs. Well-crafted set of crew! Subrabaatham, Filter coffee, Madras central railway station, Naadi astrology, our own Navraatri Golu and other Tamil Brahmin customs were well explained.
Found the book bit dragging and dramatic at few places. While I liked the descriptions of the city, the writing was stilted and the characters fairly superficial.
I also got tired of reading about how Tamil Brahmins are this, that or the other.
The plot sounds like so many others: traditional south Indian couple strives to build a happier world for their children; sends son off to America, only to have him commit the biggest blasphemy a Tam-Brahm could—falling in love with a white woman. Chennaivaasi book cover Buy What you should do, though, is pack a suitcase for that sense of wariness and send it away on a long, long trip. Chennaivaasi is beautifully written, relentlessly paced for a family drama , and keeps you turning pages in a frenzy for way longer than you might initially expect. Right from the crisply written prologue, Tirumurti sets the stage for a tale of duty, love, and family that spans across continents and generations.
