An Equal music by Vikram Seth

About the book

Set in the present day, with flashbacks, An Equal Music is a story about deafness, the perils of excessive love, the curious matter of nationality and how it affects lives and relationships.

Reviewed by Andover U3A Reading Group

This is a book that carries you along. Those members without a musical background felt they missed out but the majority found the portrayal of a group working together realistic. The different personalities were well developed and engaged one’s interest.

Star rating: ***

  1. Review by Entre Nous
    Mixed opinions – some thought it was the best book they’d ever read. One person was irritated by it and didn’t finish it! Most thoroughly enjoyed it – good discussion for reading groups.
    Star rating: *** and a half


  2. Review by Tuesday Afternoon Basingstoke
    Beautifully written – interesting insight into the world of musicians. Very strong characterisation. Provoked good discussion.
    Star rating: ****
