I bought it for my term paper last year and fell in love,such a simple yet compelling story.
Ruskin really draws you in with his rich imagery and the simplicity of his language.
Pick it up for anyone who can read.
We all should read more.
Binya is an ordinary girl from hills who have not seen any luxury in her life. One day, she meets picnickers and saw an alluring bright blue umbrella. Her love for the umbrella was instant and after the demand of picnickers, she exchanges her lucky charm over the blue umbrella.
This blue umbrella becomes the talk of the town. Some envied her, some feel happy for her. Overall, this umbrella brings various adventure in the life of Binya.
This book has a very good ending, which I have not expected and at this point, this book becomes a mature reading.
I am really touched by this book, I am so glad that I read this book. I am still lingering with the thoughts of this book.
This book can be finished in 20 minutes so if you have read this book yet then you should definitely pick it up.
Very nice story, I recommand everyone to read it.
That line "umbrella is not everything" touched my soul.
A great author.. a great human.. RUSKIN BOND.
