Depth of characters could have been better. Build up of situations and background could have been more wholistic. Major portions are in the realm of pure fantasy. I expected a more grounded, realistic depiction of special ops, given the author's access and familiarity with defence circles. Interactions in the political circles and between the Pakistanis are portrayed in a stereotypical , filmy manner which borders on the juvenile.
Would love to read more from Shiv Aroor though. His grasp of military hardware and technology is top notch.
1. Mr. Aroor has a great knack of defense jagron and workings, as this book rightly displays. However, in the process of exhibiting knowledge, he fails to carry an ordinary reader along who struggles to keep up with the book's acutely fast pace, twists and turns after every 3 pages and miles away from the ground reality. I am yet to fathom that there can be such a tolerant PM who'll trust his Navy chief even after botches of the highest order. Just weird.
2. The characters lack depth, as someone rightly mentioned here too. It's all too much of a haphazard and unrealistic, which would make you wonder whether the ghost writer of this book was Rohit Shetty. A pertinent issue with a hostile nation and the NSA, DIB, Secy. (Research) and Army Chiefs are not even in the frame!
3. The plot is good. It's refreshing. The author could have done a way, way better job at arranging the plot the right way but I will cut him some slack, given it's his first book.
4. The diagrams! Thank heavens! They were a welcome change and did tone down the annoyance of my non-defense forces-following friend as well. Credit where it's due, the diagrams added more sense to the plot. They involved the reader well enough.
I am neither too satisfied or dissatisfied by this book. I feel inclined to be liberal, and I don't know why would I be so, but I'd be more of dissatisfied had I not followed Mr. Aroor's work closely and give him my respect for being one of the rare breed of journalists who actually have interest, responsibility and factual knowledge of our nation's armed forces. Hoping for a better second book from Mr. Aroor.
A one time read, nothing more.
I have earlier seen shiv aroor but this book coming from him is just unexpected..great narration skill
Just wish that it had been a reality....it's stellar griping ☺☺
