The search for roots is the central theme in Martin Wickramasinghe’s writings on the culture and life of the people of Sri Lanka He imaginatively explored and applied modern knowledge in natural and social sciences, literature, linguistics, the arts, philosophy, education, and Buddhism and comparative religion to reach beyond the superficial emotionalism of vulgar nationalism, and guide us to the.

    I approached this book by friendship as a lovely friend gifted me this book as representative of the literature of her country, so my predisposition to read it was beyond the mere literary motivation.

    However, I have to say, I loved it. I found it so innocent in both its style and plot, it has been like breathing fresh air. It portrays childhood friendship in rural SL time ago so we have to relate the episodes to a certain historical moment without judging them.

    The adventures of the protagonist and his friend (like Asians Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn) moved me frequently, made me laugh, smile but, above all, feel an inmense tenderness from the beginning to end.

    There are books you read but there are others you read and never forget: this is one of the latter for many reasons

    This is the English translation of Martin Wickramasinghe's මඩොල් දූව. To say something about Prof. Halpe's translation, it's really good so you won't regret reading it. I liked the fact that it has the Sri Lankan colouring with names of titles, food etc. without translated into English.

    I read the original when I was around 14 and didn't see things I see now re-reading it. Firstly Madol Doova is a Growth novel/bildungsroman one of my favourite genres. The narrator/the protagonist Upali is a young rebel who finds Madol Doova (Madol island, Doova means island) a perfect utopian escape from everything he is tired of back at home. And I didn't noticed it earlier, being motherless and having a step-mother is a key reason for Upali's rebellious personality. It's his way of punishing his father for forgetting his mother so soon.

    Then Upali loves adventures and it is this teenage venturesomeness that leads Upali and Jinna ( Upali's friend and a sevent-boy in his household) to walk away from the class structure and make bold choices , face the consequences and to face the realities in their own terms.
    The island helps to shape Upali into a mature figure a one who is responsible, independent and caring.

    *Recommended to Young-Adult/Children Fiction fans

    I know my first encounter with this book is way before 1990, just can't remember when. But I can remember the blue cover with a boat and two boys. How wonderful it was.

    The survival of Upali & Jinna in a remote island after running away from home is the cream of the story. Nostalgia hits every time I think of this. The ghost lights, the boat carrying a woman & child at night and Soma, the stubborn daughter of the principal who always did what was forbidden are earliest memories of Madol Doowa. Mr. Wickramasingha wrote in his beautiful flow of language with arousing curiosity which makes the reader a slave to the book. The beauty of life, the harmonious existence of man & nature and the rebellious nature of youth is portrayed in the best way possible.

    Translated to many languages from Sinhalese, Madol Doowa still holds the place as one of the best books of Sinhalese literature.

    Playful and nostalgic, Madol Doowa tells the story of Upali, a young boy living down South. He faces tragedy at a very young age, but that doesn't change his playful nature. Defiant of his parent's expectations, Upali gets up to all manner of mischief with his friend, Jinna, a servant boy at his house.

    The book is simply written, but deals with quite complex issues, such as death, loss and guilt. Yet through it all it maintains its playful tone, and is a great snapshot of rural life at the time (it's said to be set around the 1890s). Madol Doowa has been made into a movie and teledrama, and you can even go see the island which is said to have partially inspired Martin Wickramasinghe, not far from his home in Koggala.

    It's a quick, easy read, and recommended.

    This is Sri Lankan famous book. I read this book many times. Because I can read Sri Lankan letters(Sinhala letters);because I'm from Sri Lanka. This book wrote Mr. Martin Wickramasinghe. I will discuss about him self also. Mr. Martin Wickramasinghe is very famous writer was Sri Lanka. He was born on 29 May 1890 Koggala, Sri Lanka and he dies was 23 July 1976 Colombo, Sri Lanka. When he dies he was 86 years old. His nationality is Sri Lankan. His other names is Lama Hewage Don Martin Wickramasinghe. His ethnicity is Sinhalese. His occupation is Writer, author in Sri Lanka. His religion is THERAVADA BUDDHISM. His wife was Kataluwe Balage Prema de Silva. His children are *Sarath Kusum Wickramasinghe,

    *Rupa Malathie Saparamadu,
    *Himanshu Ranga Wickramasinghe,
    *Usha Ekanayake,
    *Unie Kuruppu
    That was about writer Mr. Martin Wickramasinghe. Now I'm going discuss about Madol Doova.That story about island in Sri Lanka. Madol doova is Mango island. In that book main character was UPALI. His mom was died. When his mom was dies he was 7 years old. Because after his mom's died his father was married again. Sri Lankan people called 2nd mom is KUDAMMA But his Kudamma was very very bad. Every times blame for Upali. In their home had a servant. He was a small boy. His name was JINADASA. But Upali called for him JINNA He was older than two years for Upali. younger time he was lived village. Because he had May be 5 or 6 friends. His best friend also was Jinna. Jinna is very kind. His author friends was Dagadasa,Jinadasa and More............... If he was adult and went to madol doova to live; with Jinna. They was first persons of lived madol doova.

    The first time I read මඩොල් දූව I was 8 or 10. I loved every page. There is adventure, boats, good and bad guys! At that age there is something profoundly evocative in words like Island, boats, adventure and so forth and I have remembered Upali's adventures with great pleasure over the years.

    Best one

    Tbh, I think a lot of the amazing-ness of this book was lost in translation. I enjoyed it, I really did- but at the same time I wasn't really compelled to keep reading.

    It had a lot of the same vibes that my old Enid Blytons had though, and that was awesome. Maybe one day my Sinhala will be good enough to read this in it's original format.

    Also sidenote, my boyfriend loves this book, so I guess like any other book, it's subjective!
