The amazing book. There's a twist every turn. Wasn't much crazy about movie, just picked the book as it went on low price just before release of Bahubali 2. So instead of waiting for movie, I thought to give this a try and I'm eagerly waiting for 2nd part now --By Amazon Customer on 5 May 2017
Reading it before watching Bahubali - the Conclusion, was thrilling. Waiting to see lot more such books of each character in bahubali to know why they are the way they are as shown in the film. A good read. --By Amazon Customer on 13 May 2017
