Author has tried a new element in this book and that is to introduce different events of India, that shaped the 'India' that we see today. The whole story is divided into timelines and every major event has been shared or have effected the story to shape up.
The only flaw that I encountered in the story was the pre climax part. The story becomes too slow and predictable as well. But the climax takes it over as well.
Overall a wonderful read.
Ashwin has notoriously chosen the mythological topics, so no one could judge him.
I've read all of his books, from Rozabal Line, Krishna Key, Chankya Chant, Private India, Sialkot Saga and currently reading Keepers of the Kalachakra.
I've also read DB's all the books, except the latest one, Origin.
And now the feedback, "Sialkot Saga" is one of the most pathetic books I've come across. The story revolves around two main characters, Arvind and Arbaz, which crosses each others path every 100th page, meanwhile it's all crap.
To make the story more intriguing, AS has put a temptation of Asoka's '9 unknown'. I personally have read so much on them, it irritates me reading them again with a new theory.
The plot is crazy, and story is deep shit. No pace, what so ever!!!
I didn't find it neither intriguing nor intellectual. And, from my experiences I can say, fiction could bear both of these properties.
To me, AS looks a crazy man possessed, he can't serve other than mythology and that too with no proper plots to justify.
If you still want to read this, I would suggest beg, borrow, steal. But, don't buy it..!
Everybody must read it, let knowledge enlighten you.
Another unique part of the book is the alternate narration of the ancient secret society of Nine Unknown Men, Author did an extensive research on them and portrayed very different dimension of Ashoka's Unknown men. However, my thirst to read more about The Nine Unknown Men was not quenched by this novel. All the dots were connected beautifully but still something was missing. People who want to read this novel just to read about the secret society may get little dishearten but I suggest giving points to Ashwin Sanghi's bold experiment with the book.
I tweeted this to Ashwin Sanghi after finishing the book, "Wonderful book. Epilogue is a masterpiece. I prayed for more pages after every page turn."
Epilogue was indeed a masterpiece and you will yearn for more and more as you turn page. I wish Ashwin wrote a novella taking epilogue further in the realms of mythology and legends.
Also, stories from Pre-independence era was touch based for climax of the story.
Loved the conceptualisation of how urge for monetary achievements was dramatically mixed with twisting events of life.
It helped to learn many commercial ideas that is achievable in anyones life from the lead characters.
Definitely 5star for me!!!
