Reviews of 'The Boy from Allahabad'

Review and Author Q&A in Eastern Eye - the largest audience for British Asians

Lucy Bryson enjoys a voyage of spiritual and philosophical discovery with Ruchir Verma’s beautiful coming-of-age tale.


Asian Times

A brilliantly written tale of a young boy’s path to adulthood, The Boy From Allahabad is an impressive first novel that combines elements of literary fiction and philosophy....


India Weekly

With shades of Herman Hesse’s classic philosophical novel Siddartha, Verma’s debut is rich in mysticism and metaphor, and highlights the importance of religious tolerance and making the right life choices in difficult circumstances. 


Goodreads review

'The Boy From Allahabad had several strong and well-written characters, I really enjoyed the book it was actually educational for me as I’m not familiar with the area and or the religion. It was an enjoyable story to follow the tale of Balu and for his search for peace and love.'
