  1. We follow Polly s journey to India, a trip taken to escape home after her husband is arrested for paedophillia Her decision to work with homeless kids seems like a sort of penance at first, until she begins to really care for them and regard them as her responsibility.Polly s dilemma at the end caught me off guard and I m still wondering if I would have made the same decision.What I enjoyed most was how the author s gorgeous and extensive descriptions transported me to India We smell the rotting [...]

  6. What a great book Dianne Noble has really captured the essence of the sights and smells of the real India Not the splendour of the Taj Mahal, the high end hustle and bustle of Mumbai, but the reality of life for many slum dwellers and their children.I was truly touched, reading the story of Polly, who escaped to India, following the arrest of her husband for paedophilia It s an emotional story, showing the changes that helping those who most need it, can change you and your outlook on life I tho [...]

  8. The richness and vibrancy of Ms Noble s writing is something one rarely sees in fiction.Read full review in the 2017 July August issue of InD tale Magazine.


  9. I devour Dianne Noble s books about India I admit I have a penchant for reading anything about the slums and the caste systems of India and have read most of the famous authors on this subject A God of Small Things, A Suitable Boy, City of Joy, Heat and Dust Ms Noble s novels could stand proudly up there on the book shelves alongside these novels.Her observation skills are second to none Her characters become friends, they re so real The reader sees the very worst of Kolkata slums through Polly [...]


  10. A Hundred Hands treads familiar territory to Noble s previous novel, Outcast A disturbing incident propels a middle aged woman to leave a comfortable existence in Britain to engage with India, its children and all the cultural shocks that must entail.The arc of change is at the heart of both books, but this novel is broader, encompassing Kolkata orphans, a Welsh gran and a whole range of easy prejudices turned on their heads.Noble s skill is in sensory description and the increments of change, a [...]


  11. Very interesting and evocative setting in Kolkata, India, powerful depiction of street life and poverty, and clearly a setting the author knows well, but I found difficulty in identifying with some of the protagonist s emotions and decisions.


  12. This is a very good book if you want to get an idea about what Indian life is like for thousands of people The smells, heat and sounds are so realistic that at times I felt transported back to the time I traveled through India with a backpack myself It was a culture shock just as much as it is for the main protagonist Polly The author delivers an honest description of the dirty, polluted and cockroach infested back streets of Kolkata and Polly s acclimatization, her integration into the local co [...]
