The author might have taken some months to write the book, but I read cover to cover within 5 hours, so gripping it was! Just loved it and still feel I should read it again.
The drama and the pace matches with the original drama in Mahabharata. Mr. Iyer has interestingly blended the stories which are very well known and the regional versions, which are hardly known, (could have been very contradicting to the original story) into one fluid narrative.
The painful Draupadi vastraharan (which every known author has done injustice with) has been given a completely different and very welcoming ending. I really thank the author for how he has interpreted and present it. I believe every Indian must read at least this interpretation, it can change the mindsets.
Only a downside I see, is use of difficult words. Simpler alternatives could help the author get more fan following.
Cover must be changed!!!! and please add some bibliography to it, so we know this is really authentic and not just a creative expression.
I've read agyatavas as Chitrakatha in the child magazine Balarama and the stories were not unknown. But the way it is narrated, that style bags the stars. It is so racy and every page leaves the reader with 'what next' question though the story is well-known. Only thing is it was concluded rather ambigously. The strange formations in the sky can be explained more.
On the whole a nice weekend read.
Overall a good read but not a great one
I enjoyed the familiarity of the stories I've either heard or read woven into the curiosity of this spy thriller. During the course of the story, one comes across many one line observations that command a deep thought.Specifically,I re-read and nodded in appreciation at all that is written about Lord Krishna.
A piece of history served with dollops of imagination, a must-read in the Indian Spy-thriller genre!
