    I won this book as a giveaway. Although I've won just a few giveaways so far on , I've received ARC books in the past from other sources. Giveaways/ARCs are hit or miss: I've gotten a few really good books, and more than a few not so good books. Fortunately, Darshan falls in the first category.If you like multi-generational family sagas set in mostly exotic locales, then this is your book. Darshan is about the Toor family, who live in the Punjab, Northern India. Baba Singh is one of their sever [...]

  • Zoeytron says:

    My highest compliment to an author is when I am able to say that I did not want his or her book to end. This is one of those times. Not at all ready to leave Darshan, I went back and reread the prologue that had so intrigued me and it brought everything full circle. The fascinating minutiae of Indian culture is intricately woven into a sweeping narrative of three generations of the Toor family, following them from India to Fiji, then to San Francisco. From the art of wrapping a turban to the mak [...]

  • Sofia Quezada says:

    My favorite part of this book was the ending, I didn't expect it and you'll have to read this book to find out what I personally couldn't imagine. I'm a California native who happens to be of Mexican-American descent. When reading books of other cultures, I tend to have a somewhat difficult time to read with fluency because of my need to fully understand their traditions and beliefs, and with Darshan, I didn't feel the desire to do any added research because the author was so detailed that I phy [...]

  • Cherry M says:

    I just finished reading Darshan, and it was amazing! As a Sikh American I was able to relate to the characters, the culture, and the patriarchical family structure. The way that Chima describes everything about the Punjabi culture seemed very authentic to me. It was easy to understand Baba Singh's anger when his family was cheated out of their land, and Chima somehow found a way to make the reader empathize with the character even when he committed such a serious crime. The fact that he carries [...]

  • ✰☽♥✰Unsolved Mystery ✰♥☾✰ says:

    I won this in a giveaway. Thank you. I made it to page 77. I didn't stop reading because the story line was bad. It wasn't. It was kinda interesting. I stopped reading because the names of the people made it confusing and overwhelming.

  • Tita says:

    “He sometimes takes a rag to [the motorcycle], trying to polish away the rust. He does not realize that rust changes the metal, that it cannot simply be wiped away.”As a family saga, Amrit Chima’s first novel confronts us with a lot of questions: How many generations have to suffer for a sin committed by somebody who wasn’t even aware of his crime (was it his crime at all, or could we find another context to avoid condemning him)? If, as the writer claims, the rust cannot simply be wiped [...]

    A multi-generational epic family saga that spans generations, decades, and continents, Darshan traces the reverberations of a single shocking act, from grandfather to the grandson whose name gives the novel its title. The book is a map of the physical and emotional journeys, the struggles that bind and define a family just trying to find and claim its space in the world. We follow the sins of the father as they pass to the sons, we see why people close their hearts, even as what they want and ne [...]

  • Sharon says:

    Shoot, I was hooked on the first page of the prolog. This may turn out to be one of my favorite books. _____________________ Darshan is a literary achievement. This book goes on my favorites list. Darshan is a well-written literary novel spanning generations with all kinds of characters. The story takes place in India, Figi, and finally California. Learning about life for this family in northern India and Figi was fascinating. Sikh tradition and culture envelop the family tightly. Everything abo [...]

  • Heather says:

    This lyrical debut novel follows three generations of the Toor family—from India to Fiji to San Francisco. Despite the many migrations and historical events the characters witness, this is a book about family and the human soul. Are sons doomed to repeat the mistakes of their fathers? What is more important—familial duty or individual dreams? These are some of the questions Darshan raises.At the heart of the novel is an enduring and pervasive guilt that burdens not only Baba Singh Toor but a [...]

  • Karen says:

    This seemed just like the sort of book I would like - following 3 generations of a family from India and their journey from Punjab to Fiji to San Francisco. I liked how the point of view shifted from father to son to grandson seamlessly and there were some interesting themes about family and obligation, but overall I just couldn't get into it. I found the plots often dreary and depressing and the characters were not particularly likeable.

  • Delilah Medina says:

    Darshan by Chima is a moving and emotional read that left me clinging to every page. The author had be immersed in the story and I could not put the novel down. I began to love and hate certain characters as they came to life (or death). I can't wait for more works to come out from this talented writer.

  • Jessica Maarek says:

    I enjoyed this debut novel by Amrit Chima very much. Its attention to detail, setting and character development was expansive and impressive and a joy to read. It is a difficult tale to tell, as many of the events in the lives of the three generations of the Toor family are heartbreaking, but in the hands of Amrit, the lives of these characters become a tale of family-ties, transplanting to new lands, parenting, yearning and ultimately redemption.An excellent read, I highly recommend!

  • Joan says:

    This is a saga of three generations of Sikhs in Punjab, India, Fiji and California during the occupation of the British from 1910 until they left India. I have read many novels by Caucasians wherein they describe how the subjugated Indians felt under British occupation, but this novel is written by an Indian woman who had the viewpoint of those who suffered. Sikhs were considered the warriors of India with great prowess. The culture, as like many old European cultures, placed the responsibility [...]

  • Lorin Cary says:

    Darshan is a sweeping, beautifully written and constructed novel about one Sikh family (the Toors) from northern India across four generations from about 1915 on. It’s not easy to characterize this novel or neatly summarize the plot. The first third of the book is set in India. After the death of his father, Baba Singh is the central character. Then we turn to Fiji, another British colony, where Baba Sing’s son Manmohan is the central character. In the last segment of the novel, the focus is [...]

  • Megan says:

    When I read the description of this book, I was intrigued by the premise. I was thrilled to receive a FirstReads copy and was not disappointed. The book tells the Toor family saga over three generations. Spanning nearly a century, the book is divided into three sections focusing on a different location, time period, and family member. The first section takes place in Punjab, India between 1910 and 1937 and tells Baba Singh's story; the second follows his son Manmahon's tale and takes place in Gr [...]

  • Kara says:

    ATTENTION (April 2014 change): I have revised this review to show a well-deserved 5 rather than 4 star rating -- I am a more experienced reviewer now, and I see some ratings from earlier reviews were a bit too high or low based on the standard overall. I'm not marking down any I think I may have given a star too many because it seems unnecessary and kind of mean. But, I thought I ought to show full regard when merited with my rating if I am serious enough to actually have written a review in the [...]

  • Diane Decorso says:

    Astonishing in its depth of character development and descriptive perceptions, Darshan is an account of multiple generations, living on multiple continents and filled with multiple surprises. In her first novel, Chima has woven together a complex story in such a way that the reader feels a personal and intimate knowledge of, and attachment to, the characters. Her ability to paint a clear picture with her phraseology fills out the story and adds color, profundity and interest at every turn. Chima [...]

  • Pat says:

    Darshan is a magnificent read by a new author who is destined to be a prolific, best-selling writer. It is a deeply moving novel derived from the author's family history. It explores the themes of loyalty, love, betrayal and finally redemption across generations from its beginnings in India, on to Fiji and finally to the US. It is beautifully written and filled with vivid descriptions. The story is so captivating that you will not want to put it down. This epic novel will captivate and maintain [...]

  • Nicole says:

    Darshan is one of the best books that I've received through the Giveaway so far. A touching story about an Indian family's struggles to relate to one another despite changing times and immersion within new cultural environments, this book has themes reminiscent of The Good Earth. The story really draws you in. I'll be looking forward to seeing what else Amrit Chima writes, since this book is a masterpiece.

  • Ami says:

    Chima writes a family saga in which the characters are tragically doomed to shoulder the sins of their parents. Although the characters are at times frustratingly blind, I nonetheless understood their decisions and motives, cheering them in the right direction even when I knew they would veer off course. Exciting, it reads quickly despite its length, and kept me riveted until the end. A must read.

  • Ayl says:

    The characters in Darshan will haunt you long after you finish the book. A masterful storyteller, Chima leaves the reader wanting more. Thankfully, there is so much richness and subtle nuance in the writing that multiple reads offer new discoveries and insights into the characters and their stories. Impressive debut novel.

  • Ankur says:

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I identified with the Indian aspects of it, and some parts of it hit close to home (I live in San Francisco). So those two aspects made it intimate.I enjoyed how the story flowed through generations. The characters were well thought out and realistic. I was even upset with some of them like they were real.I'm glad this book was recommended to me.

  • Misty says:

    Fascinating book about a culture that I do not have a strong understanding of. The book took me to a different world and culture and revealed a whole new world to me. I am so thankful to read a book that has helped open my eyes to this new culture.

  • Lora Desrosier says:

    I won this book on , & it really is a treasure. What an emotional ride! The pain, fortitude, bitterness, envy, & love portrayed by the characters in the story are remarkable. I hope this author keeps writing!

  • Wanda says:

    14 DEC 2013 -- offered as an ebook for only $0.99 for the nook from Barnes & Noble. Whee for me!

  • Wendy says:

    I loved this rich and epic novel I didn't want it to end.I love Southeast Asian novels ans look forward to more from Amrit Chima.
