1. As usual , Amazon's delivery was swift & fast .
2.Quality of pages isn't good & so did it's erring so I think this book doesn't deserve such a ill-quality version .
3. Book Review
14-15 Aug 1947 was the day when Raj ruled India attained freedom on the cost of vivisection of the country which caused a huge turmoil . The nation wasn't just divided into two but it's the heart of the people which once live together, work together, enjoy each other's festivals turn against one another. Seeds of hatred were sown in those days which actually cost more than a division of land . Punjab- A state once known for the fraternity among Hindus, Muslims & Sikhs had experienced the havoc that even frog leaped Nazi Germany's concentration camps. But how did it began ? Who , When & Where sown those seeds of hatred that divided a peaceful country ? And how that decision kept on affecting millions for years & probably will continue in future too.
Freedom At Midnight is a treasure of information which will enlighten about the tragedy that caused so much of bloodshed that even the British started comparing it with the situation of people in Nazi's concentration camp. A splendid book,it is , to understand the birth of India & Pakistan. It 'll reveal what most of us aren't aware of , lessons that were never taught to us in our schooling (not in India at least) . Albeit it's a work of non-fiction but the deep research by the authors has made it pacy & comparable to a pacy with the speed of a modern jet. A number of stories were also embedded in this tome of 774 pages related to the sufferings brought by partition to the common as well as special people.

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.

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.

Its difficult to find a book written as objectively as this one is, about India's freedom struggle and the role played by our great leaders in bringing forth the tryst with destiny! In my opinion this book is a classic and classics are beyond review-they invariably touch a chord deep down in the heart and leaves one gasping with choking admiration. A must read book for all those who wish to know about India's freedom struggle and events leading to the partition.

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

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.
