The Fantasy Eaters deals with their life and experiences on plantation, struggle for preservation of social, moral, and cultural aspects of Indian way of life and unanticipated violation of it and existential dilemma. It also deals with the psychological effects of multiculturalism and colonialism. The book is a complex revelation of the complex fate of Indo-Fijians where their bleak existence finds an expression, often threatened by failures. The failure of communication is not only emphasized by the characters’ existence but also by the natural elements like wind, sea, trees, birds, animals, sky, clouds, etc.
