Nepali Novels

Nepali Novels : Overview

Nepali Novels are being written in large numbers these days.The news that a book has been made public can be read on social media. The pace of publication has become so fast that even online magazines that are updated every minute are unable to make the news public. This means that not only the number of book publications has increased, but also the reading culture is on the rise.

Writers are becoming celebrities in the market. And, Writing has earned their livelihood. Some time ago, it was like a daydream. Despite this, there are frequent complaints of poor quality of Nepali books. In Nepal, it has become a common practice to show faults in well-known, well-received and best-selling books of the year.

Such allegations are less likely to come from readers, more from the writers themselves, and more from critics. While readers are happily promoting authors and works on social media, critics seem to be eager to point out the book’s weaknesses.

To end this dilemma of the readers, online news prepared three questionnaires and asked some well-known writers, poets, journalists, critics and readers to write down the names of their favorite Nepali books. Here we have made public the names of 111 books that Nepali readers must read through the analytical method.

In this survey, we have divided the book into 10 parts and tried to find 11 best books in each field.

Many books on Nepali history, society and traditions are not well written. As much as was written, in foreign languages ​​and foreign writers wrote with their own eyes.
