Woot! BOOK CLUB!!! I picked Ponniyin Selvan because I’ve almost finished the first volume, it’s very fun, the movies are great, and it’s on topic for the blog. Oh, and the English translations are pretty readily available, at least digital copies (physical you may have to ship from far away).
Ponniyin Selvan Vol 1
The whole novel is in 5 parts and very long. But each individual part is pretty short! Each translation has slight differences, but if we read the whole book together, it will even out and be close enough.
I’m reading the newest translation, by Nandini Krishnan. But the older translation by Pavithra Srinivasan is pretty good too! And I’ll have to switch to the old one for the next volume anyway.
It’s available on Kindle Unlimited and Audible, and for kindle purchase, or you can track down a physical copy somewhere.
Yay! So exciting!

Oh I’ve read these books! So glad you’re on them! Book 2 is my absolute fav and I go back and have reread it so many times.
Yaaaaaay! So at least someone will be available to discuss them with me.
