    Summary ´ The Day of the Scorpion 104 The Day of the ScorpionA little over a year ago I read the first in Paul Scott’s remarkable Raj uartet The Jewel in the Crown Last month I finished reading the next in the series The Day of the Scorpion Each are very captivating novels rich in history and deep characterizations I would be hard pressed to tell you which one I liked better In The Day of the Scorpion the end of World War II is approaching and the end of the British Raj is on the horizon in India In this installment some of the characters from the first are once again part of the story while some new individuals appear on the scene Scott does a tremendous job of presenting to us the sensibilities of the people of an entire subcontinent through his characters We see each through a lens that does not distort but reveals their inner feelings in such a way that you understand even if you do not
