Historical Fiction: The book is full of riddles entwined with historical fiction. If you're a person who gets wowed with historical fiction, this one is for you. You would be thrilled to read a historical fiction based in India.
Fast Paced Story: The story is quite fast paced and keeps you glued to the book. You will keep turning the pages to find out what happens next.
Narration: The narration is superb. Even with a complex plot and exciting twists, you don't get confused on what's happened. It is all complex but still simple.
Overall, I think this book is a must-read. It can be quickly read and you would have a pretty good time reading it. Perfect for those who like thrillers and mystery novels , with a slight hint of romance in it. ;)
It is a thriller based on Indian mythology and about the quest for Shyamantaka – a jewel believed to have been lost for 5000 years. Sangeeta Rao, the protagonist is a TV anchor in Singapore who drops everything to go to Agra for a special story and that is when she gets embroiled with a Welshman Alan Davies to find the jewel and go through a lot of trials and tribulations.
The thing about the book is the story. The plot is the king and that’s how it should be. The characters are well-etched and the banter between Sangeeta and Alan is worth it. It also has a wry sense of humour in some places, which is refreshing.
The writing sometimes seems a bit tepid but carries pace when it has to and saves the day. I loved the way the book was written and the chapters kept revealing the plot lines, keeping me glued to the edge of the seat.
“The Curse of Surya” is the perfect book to be read on a flight. Before you know it, it is over and done with. If someone asks me what thriller they must read next, which will get over soon and which will keep them hooked, I will recommend this one.
The characters in the story are very well written and completely developed as individuals . Sangeeta is an intelligent woman while Alan is equally up to the task. Even Blanchard and SP Nisha are also very exhaustively written and fleshed out. Clearly each character has been given the right amount of attention and that helps the entire book very credible and very thoroughly enjoyable and riveting to the core.
