An awesome book, based mainly on Mountbatten's version of events that led to India's independence and partition.

The narrative is excellent, and it is really difficult to put the book down once you get hooked. The book moves along two lines mostly, one following Gandhi's actions and the other following Mountbatten's(which is in detail, since the authors had personally interviewed Mountbatten extensively for the work).

The authors have their own interpretations in some cases, which makes it all the more interesting.
In short, an excellent read.

I am one person who ever ran in the opposite direction of that of history books. A friend suggested me this and I take this friend very seriously. I had it on my shelf for a fortnight before I decided to do it. The 800 pages thickness can look overwhelming but, once you start reading...it's darn difficult to put it down. The first time I started reading it....I was in train, there was dim light and yet, I only realized it was 3 in the morning when the train halted at a station. I finished the 200 pages the very first time and it is the first time, too that a book filled me up with so much pride and sadness, with patriotism and betrayal...everything at the same time. There couldn't have been a better book to gift someone important to you, to give them the brush of being an Indian...all through just a book. It's a must-read for every one who knows how to read! I am ordering two more copies to gift my closest people. The price is very good, paper quality is very very good. I found a few typos here and there but..the overall look of the book is unappealing....only until you are on the first page and you can't wait to devour it all in one go!!! Cheers to being Indian and cheers to the Freedom At Midnight!!

Commendable work by the authors. the book provides many inside facts about well known history of our country INDIA. this book helps to come out of commotion about historical events happened during the Independence period.

some times we feel it as a suspense thriller we go through certain historical events. it enhances respect towards the leaders who were at the helm during Independence.

Younger generation must read this book to enlighten themselves.

Thank you very much.

I'm a Japanese learning India.
I thought I learned a lot by the movie "Gandhi" about the independence of India.
This book gives me a lot more detailed and restless reality of the independence.
Disasters of the partition, Maharaja and Nizam, assassination of Gandhi, and a lot more.

I've leaned a lot

I was fifteen years old when India became independent so the book brought back poignant memories of those days and also filled in the gaps in my knowledge. Thank you.

I liked the book, it started very well, the author detailed everything, at places lot of exaggeration like the Britannica (Encyclopedia) was divided, I could not really understand what the author meant by this, also the last few chapters the pages were missing and few pages missing. Although I wrote the publisher to exchange the book but in vein we exchanged few mails but of no use, the publisher never exchanged so I could not read the whole book.

I had already read this book in my college days. But I realized a need to revise my knowledge and clarify facts and fictional stories which we come across everyday on the social media. I consider this book highly authentic account of the actual events at and around the time of independence of India. The authors Dominique Lapierre and Larry Collins have themselves been very close to the last Viceroy and the first Governor General of India Lord Mountbatten. So who else can tell the real stories better than them. Believe me, this book will change your mind set about what the actual scenario of the country was at that time and what our leader had to go through to face and handle those situations. A must read for all who want to know the truth behind all the drama.
And moreover this is an Indian Edition with an elaborate re-written Preface by the authors. The authors have also declared that all the royalty from this edition will go for charity work in India. That is something very impressive and appreciable job done by the authors. Kudos.
