The book that inspired the box office hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and its follow-up The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel starring Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Dev Patel and Penelope Wilton.

Enticed by advertisements for a newly restored palatial hotel and filled with visions of a life of leisure, good weather and mango juice in their gin, a group of very different pensioners leave England to begin a new life in India.

On arrival they are dismayed to find the palace is a shell of its former self, the staff are more than a little eccentric, and the days of the Raj long gone, But, as they soon discover, life and love can begin again, even in the most unexpected circumstances.

Originally published with the title These Foolish Things.

a very enjoyable read


I saw the movie and loved it. The book is quite different in the story line and the characters in it.However, it is well written and entertaining and is worth reading. It will not spoil your memories of the movie.
