First published in , Chemmeen tells the story of the relationship between Karutthamma, a Hindu woman from the fisherfolk community, and Pareekkutty, the son of a Muslim fish wholesaler. Unable to live with the man she loves, Karutthamma marries Palani, who, despite the scandal about his wife's past, never stops trusting her, a trust that is reaffirmed each time he goes to sea and comes back safe since the 'sea-mother' myth among the fishermen community goes that the safe return of a fisherman depends on the fidelity of his wife.

This book had been made into a Malayalam movie by the same name. The cover page of the book is still from the "Chemmeen" movie. The malayalam actress Sheela who portrays the character 'Karuthamma' is seen holding earthen pots on a sea shore.
She is in her fisherwoman dress and she seems to gaze at someone or something. The story revolves around Karuthamma, a fisherman's daughter destined to marry a fisherman of her same caste and religion. When Pareekutty, a Muslim fisherman helps her family, Karuthamma couldn't help herself from falling into the forbidden love. Little did Karuthamma know that fate had other plans for her.
The vivid description of seashore is striking and the story takes us through the life of the fisher folk. It also elicits how the caste division affects the people.
The characters often question the ethics and norms set by the society. The novel has been translated into many languages over the world and is one of the best translated works of Malayalam.
Thakazhi Sivasankara Pillai brings out the simple story in its brief detailing, but manages to enthral readers from all over the world. I would definitely recommend this book as a one time read. Even though this belongs to the tragedy genre and the ending seemed to pull a sudden brake, the plot unfolds beautifully which is guaranteed to entertain all readers. One person found this helpful. Great one.. Make me walk in real life.
Good book, The best translated novel.. The book was brand new.. I'm completely satisfied! I enjoyed the story throughout, it was an emotional journey, and we could easily relate to it. It's a Well crafted tale depicting the lives of Fisher folks in Kerala. Story of Mother Sea's sons and daughters; their values and way of life is what makes this story possible. Clash between norms and liberty makes their life happy, miserable and engaging; a life worth to live.

Knowing she's an editor and writer herself, I thought Ms. Nair would bring a great ear to the language of the book, but this is where she fails terribly. The language of the book in its original Malayalam is spare and direct, but Nair uses a lot of trivializing British and American idioms that spoil the rhythm and poetry of the novel, even to the point of distorting the meaning.
At one point she uses the word "kerfuffle" to describe a fishermen's brawl. In another part of the book, she says something like "He gave her a tight slap," when the original translates more like "He gave her a nice hit across the face. Good Work. Thank you. Report abuse.

Chemmeen novel in english
Indian literature has always fascinated me. However, due to my lack of skills in reading and writing any language fluently apart from English, I am losing out on large chunks of great Indian literary works. So all this while, I had to be content with reading Indian novels written in English. And it was really worth it.

Не спуская со Стратмора ледяного взгляда, Сьюзан сделала шаг вперед и протянула к нему руку с зажатым в ней предметом. Стратмор был почти уверен, что в руке Сьюзан сжимала беретту, нацеленную ему в живот, но пистолет лежал на полу, стиснутый в пальцах Хейла. Предмет, который она держала, был гораздо меньшего размера. Стратмор опустил глаза и тут же все понял. Время для него остановилось.
Punqui. - Панк. - Да, панк, - сказала Росио на плохом английском и тотчас снова перешла на испанский. - Mucha joyeria.
Что же тогда случилось? - спросил Фонтейн. - Я думал, это вирус.
И больше. Женщина сочувственно кивнула. - Поссорились. На мгновение Беккер задумался.
Это н-не… - заикаясь, произнесла она вслух, - невероятно. И, словно возражая ей, в ее мозгу эхом прозвучали слова Хейла, сказанные чуть раньше: Танкадо не раз мне писал… Стратмор сильно рисковал, взяв меня в АНБ… Рано или поздно я отсюда слиняю. Но Сьюзан физически не могла примириться с тем, что увидела.
