The one thing I found trying was the long Indian names that I wasn't sure how to pronounce. As soon as I got used to one set of characters and thought i had them straight in my head, the cast changed. So you really need some quiet time with this or you'll get frustrated.
(However dont let the character list put you off, there's a character glossary at the back which is very helpful)
It really is SO worth the read!!! 5 stars easy.
SEX : None (there is mention of marital relations, an avoided rape, mention of the Karma Sutra, and admiration of physique scattered throughout. But nothing explicit.)
It also bears mentioning (or should i say "bares mentioning "lol) that in some of the historical stories the women dont wear blouses. I think the author had fun with that. I actually whited out a few lines where I thought his descriptions coarse. But most people wouldn't have a problem with it.
VIOLENCE : minimal . There is some warfare but nothing too descriptive. The most upsetting scene to me involved elephants getting hurt in battle.
PROFANITY : minimal. I used a bit of white out on a few words but none were F bombs.
MY RATING : PG
