From its beginning in the foothills of the towering Himalayas, to the burning plains, to the besieged British Mission in Kabul., M.M. Kaye's masterwork is a vast, rich and vibrant tapestry of love and war that ranks with the greatest panoramic sagas of modern fiction. It begins in 1857 when, following the Indian Mutiny, young English orphan Ashton is disguised by his ayah Sita as her Indian son, Ashok. As he forgets his true identity, his destiny is set. This is a story of divided loyalties and fierce friendship; of true love made impossible by class and race; a critique of the imperialist adventure; and an examination of the cultural and spiritual clash between East and West.… (més)

    Kim de Rudyard Kipling (MarthaJeanne)
    MarthaJeanne: I think that Ash in Far Pavillions was based partly on Kim. Both books deal with the ambivalence between cultures of those who were brought up in a different culture to the one they belonged to by birth and later education. Both are also great adventure stories that take place during the British Raj in India. The big difference being that Kim only deals with childhood, but Ash has to go on to life as an adult.… (més)

[b:The Far Pavilions|10222|The Far Pavilions|M.M. Kaye|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1403391799s/10222.jpg|114] by [a: M.M. Kay|5665898|M.M. Kay|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/u_50x66-632230dc9882b4352d753eedf9396530.png] is one of my all time favorites.

As a young adult, I did not have much money, but I did belong to a book club. My selections were always the fattest and most interesting books I could get.

"The Far Pavilions" did not disappoint. I lived in California, and had once been to Mexico, but there were no exotic travels in my itinerary. My future did not hold travels to far lands. When I started to read this book, it was like I became a different person.

Looking back now, I would say this was a romanticized version of the history of the British domination of an Indian subcontinent, "The Far Pavilions" opened my mind and heart to parts of history I never knew.

[b: The Far Pavilions |10222|The Far Pavilions|M.M. Kaye|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1403391799s/10222.jpg|114] is a fantastic time machine, for many years I recommended this book to any person seeking a good read. ( )

Being woefully ignorant of history, I didn't know how frustrating and ultimately tragic this historical fiction was going to be. I did find the main character Ash a tad irritating at times only to be brought up short by the realization of how young he was (he is still under 30 at the end of this epic!).

The narrator (whose name escapes me at the moment) was terrific. ( )

A sweeping epic of adventure, war, and romance. I can certainly see why it's loved by many, but two things keep me from being completely satisfied with it: first, the love story is kind of weak because the lovers don't really spend that much time together; and second, the main character practically disappears for the last few hundred pages, leaving us with nothing to do but wait for the inevitable slaughter brought on by British political and military incompetence. Still, I'm glad I read it and may well read it again--albeit with some judicious skimming. ( )

El protagonista es Ashton Pelham-Martyn, hijo de unos distinguidos padres ingleses que mueren trágicamente poco después de nacer él. El joven recibirá una educación hindú en el Estado de Gulkote, al pie de una cadena de montañas consideradas sagradas, los Pabellones Lejanos. Durante este período, marcado por conflictos coloniales y guerras regionales, Ashton también conocerá el amor.

Kaye's writing is masterful and edifying: the reader will learn a great deal about the history of parts of India, and Afghanistan at the same time. Her writing is also evocative, using imagery to describe the endless amount of beauty of the land in this part of the world.

While this is a love story, and therefore held in a certain contempt by old codgers like me, it's also historical fiction, which saves it from my pessimism. This work can only be from an author who lived among Hindus and moslems, familiar with hearing many different dialects in the parts where the story takes place and making it therefore believable. ( )

We are the Pilgrims, Master: We shall go
Always a little further. It may be
Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
Across that angry or that glimmering sea,
White on a throne, or guarded in a cave
There lives a prophet who can understand
Why men are born . . .
