I loved reading all the three books in the Ibis Trilogy. Reading Flood of Fire has been a true revelation in the sense there is much to admire in this one that I feel honored and privileged to have read all these books. In the background of Opium Wars, the characters such as Zachary Reid, Neel, Kesri, Shireen, and never to forget Mrs. Burnham, have made thrilling stories of their lives tied together by the Ibis ship. Altogether, Flood of Fire is a fitting finale to a glorious expedition of the author Amitav Ghosh’s writing about the Opium Wars. I strongly recommend the book.
Albeit the Amitav version of this book has luckily learnt not to stick around the same bollywood action , he has failed to captivate the readers till the last page.There were some interesting segments in the book like the cause of the first opium war and the pitiful absence of rationale in world history.Despite such interesting sketch-ups, the reader sometimes feels that the book was tad bit stretched. Amitav in this book has more control on the language and knows how to sketch his characters even more colorfully,but he still has to learn how to write convincing events that relates to the main plot and keep the readers engrossed rather than making him skip a few lines
