Eclipse of the Sun is one of the most enjoyable books Ive ever read. Even now, quite a few years later, I can remember the characters and key details of the story (a rarity for someone who used to read a book a day!).Hang on, I wrote a review on Amazon (I wanted to share the enjoyment):If I could only own three books this would be one of them.On the face of it, Eclipse of the Sun is the story of science teacher Rajesh Deshpande, his faithful wife and the arrival of a beautiful new teacher, a potential threat to the marriage. But its so much more than that.Ive never been to India but when I recall reading this book I feel as if I have.

The people, the heat, the way of life all come vividly to life and stay with the reader long after you reluctantly come to the last page and close the book.I fell a little bit in love with all of the characters, despite (because of?) their very human flaws. Not only is the story itself a page-turner (I stayed up til 4 a.m. on the first reading) but each time I read it I appreciate another layer, more detail and enjoy it all over again.I still find it hard to believe that this was Mr Whitakers first novel.

Ive since gone on to read all of his excellent (and all so very different) books and am keenly awaiting the arrival of his latest (Freak of Nature).My only question now is why hasnt this wonderful story been made into a film!
