Swami and friends book review
Book Review- Swami and Friends by RK NarayanAbout the author: RK Narayan was an Indian author whose works of fiction include a series of books about people and their interactions in an imagined town in India called Malgudi. He is one of three leading figures of early Indian literature in English. It depicts a very nice scene, when the three boys become fast friends. If you look at international literature, the likes of Pride and Prejudice, or Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Great Expectations… these are the books that come to mind. There are few books that bring back the innocence of childhood to our mind. Swami and Friends is just such a book.

About the author
The Ohio State University. - Title : Swami and Friends.
Just looking at the cover art and reading the title transported me back to my childhood days. But when it comes to books I read all genres without bias most of the time. The story follows the adventures and misadventures of a ten-year old boy Swami and some of his friends, in and out of the school. Just like almost all the kids, Swami loves to play all day, even in scorching heat and hates to go to school. Swami has some friends from his school. But their groups begin to break when a new boy Rajam enrolls in their school. Swami, just like every other boy, is in awe of Rajam and wants to befriend him.
