The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Deborah Moggach

Well, this was totally different to what I expected and totally wonderful because of it! Loved it. Be intrigued how the film turns out. Anyone else? Highly recommend book!
Description:
When Ravi Kapoor, an over-worked London doctor, is driven beyond endurance by his obnoxious father-in-law, he asks his wife: 'Can't we just send him away somewhere? Somewhere far, far away.' His prayer seems to have been answered when his entrepreneurial cousin, Sonny, sets up a retirement home, recreating a lost corner of England in a converted guesthouse in Bangalore. Travel and set-up are inexpensive, staff willing and plentiful - and the British pensioners can enjoy the hot weather and take mango juice with their gin. The "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" is a brilliant comedy of manners, mixing acute observation with a deeper message about how different cultures cope in the modern world.

What the papers say:
"Funny, touching and so full of colours and visual details that you feel, after finishing it, as if you've already seen the movie."
--"Daily Telegraph "

"Moggach has served us a treat with this novel. Moving, sincere, funny, terrifying in places, it is a truthful view of old age and what it brings."

It is. They are.
I went to see it with my 22 year old daughter and ninety year old Mum and we all loved it. Mum thinks we should all retire to somewhere warm!
