    Chasing the Monsoon eBook â Chasing the Epub / chasing epub, monsoon book, Chasing the book, Chasing the Monsoon PDF/EPUBI have read this book several times usually as a summer read at the beach and each time I am transported to alluring and exotic places and times by Frater's colorful descriptions and lyrical prose The binding of my original copy is broken with the pages stained with sweat tanning oil seawater sand and muck secured between the covers by means of a large rubber band Yet the experience of reading the battered pages while sweltering in the heat and humidity of a summer's day along the Florida coast only amplifies the gritty beauty of India and the air of anxious anticipation for the arrival of the monsoon rains Truly a brilliant and inspiring travelogue

    Chasing the Monsoon eBook â Chasing the Epub / chasing epub, monsoon book, Chasing the book, Chasing the Monsoon PDF/EPUBI loved this book We found it in a stack of books marked free on someone's lawn as we walked home from the market We liked the look of the cover and because it is a Penguin book decided to give it a try We Couldn't Put It DownHalf memoir half travel diary it is wonderfully paced How wonderful to get a completely different view of rain At one point in Bombay there is a lovely picture of a little girl leaping around in the pouring rain and happily calling to her father I'm cold I'm cold Ha I wonder if this girl now travels in the summer to distant places so she can be cold the way we northerners seek out tropical beaches when cold snowy winds are howlin
