Críticas: - "Neel Mukherjee has written an outstanding novel: compelling, compassionate and complex, vivid, musical and fierce." --Rose Tremain
- "A devastating portrayal of a decadent society and the inevitably violent uprising against it, in the tradition of such politically charged Indian literature as the work of Prem Chand, Manto and Mulk Raj Anand. It is ferocious, unsparing and brutally honest." --Anita Desai
- ""The Lives of Others" is searing, savage and deeply moving: an unforgettably vivid picture of a time of turmoil." --Amitav Ghosh (www.amitavghosh.com/blog)
- "Very ambitious and very successful... One of Mukherjee's great gifts is precisely his capacity to imagine the lives of others... Neel Mukherjee terrifies and delights us simultaneously." --A S Byatt, "Guardian "

Like a rolling stone, Mukherjee's nonostentatious epic accrues its weight and mass gradually; it's a three-generational family saga that embraces tensions both micro- and macro-cosmic This is an immensely accomplished, steady-handed achievement, Victorian in its solidity, quietly enthralling in its insightful observation of the ties that bind. "

Searing, savage, and deeply moving: an unforgettably vivid picture of a time of turmoil.--Amitav Ghosh

Unfailingly beautiful. . . . Resembles a tone poem in its dazzling orchestration of the crescendo of domestic racket. His eye is as acute as his ear: the physicality of people and objects is delineated with a hyper-aesthetic vividness.--Jane Shilling

Mukherjee s scope is vast yet so intimately personal that it s easy imagine him donning different costumes for the characters as he composes their stories How he accomplished such a wonderful feat is unknown.

Breathtakingly tense the force of this journey hits you in waves."

Haunting...Mukherjee can recall Tolstoy in his ability to bring to life a diverse and expansive set of characters and to sharply invoke interior worlds...[it's] a sophisticated meditation on suffering that invites empathy for characters who embrace violent ideologies as a result of injustice without ever vindicating the horrific violence they commit.--Hirsh Sawhney
