  • This was one of those books that was entertaining, but not great. The language seemed too simple for me. I wish there was more flare. I wish there had been more effort in lyrical writing. It might have added that little extra something. Don't get me wrong, I read this story quickly. It's easy to immerse yourself into the story and it's easy to follow, but ultimately, that was the issue. The story was too simple for me.


  • The Far Spent Day by Nihal da Silva promises much for the reader. The fact that it foes not deliver all it attempts should not deter anyone from exploring its world. Those interested in reading about the society and politics of contemporary Sri Lanka will find too little to justify careful scrutiny of the 100,000 word text. But they will enjoy the unexpectedly complex thriller that unfolds. People seeking a rip-roaring story will enjoy the process, but the only real suspense is that of the chase [...]


  • The Far Spent Day was a slight disappointment. Although the story flows fine and the writer has skillfully and smoothly takes the reader through the change in Ravi, the main character, the novel is not up to the expectations of the readers who have read the other books by de Silva.The story is written in simple English and the reader can read through the story effortlessly. The writer paints a clear and true picture about Colombo and suburbs, and even a reader who has never set foot to this city [...]


  • Was disappointed with the book for so many reasons;his characters were not believable. For example, I didn't feel the the romance between Ravi and Tanya. The romance has to bloom, but this justhappened. It was so abrupt and artificial. Didn't particularly like that fact that all Sinhala dialogues were repeated in Sinhala and English. In some instances, it broke the flow of the story, dialogues and characters.His other books are definitely, definitely better than this story however, I was pleasan [...]


  • In this the author courageously exposes another aspect of our contemporary world/Sri Lanka - the misuse of power by politicians - the use of violence as a weapon, the amassing of wealth illegally, by use of power to indulge sexual harassment. Sounds too harsh? It's Nihal de Silva who tells these. He also focuses on the areas of experience hardly explored by our writers in English - the urban world of thugs and pickpockets and the world of destitute. At a level Nihal de Silva's novels are thrille [...]


  • i loved this book. I lived reading about Colombo and Sri Lanka. I loved Ravi, I loved the way he changes. I hate the way de Silva portrays women, Tanya, strong, but unlikeable. Why couldnt he have a likeable women, they are always strong, bossy, unlikeable. Why cant they be soft, romantic, sexual? Too late for that now, but, anyway, this was a great book. Became very dark, and it didnt have the war as the central issue of conflict. liked this book very much.


  • A book written in very simple English but it wasn't as good as Nihal de Silva's other books. The overall plot was nice but I couldn't help picturing a Tamil actor and an actress as the characters, had a little too much of perfection when carrying out the plans.
