Regarding the contents itself, I must say that this is one of the finest novel that I have ever read, including the ones not in Malayalam. K.R. Meera's Aarachar was to me a very good novel. But now having read Yakshi, I must say that Aarachar falls a bit short of Yakshi. I had heard of Yakshi in my school days. It became more popular after a movie, Akam, based on the novel was released. I had the chance to watch the movie. But then I wanted to read the novel first. And it was very wise of me to do that.
The author's knowledge and his intellect is evident from the references that he makes in the novel. From using Sherlock Holmes' Impossible quote (How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?) to Terry Higgins, Helen of Troy and Botticelli, the author makes sure that the reader acknowledges the author's broad and well built base. Not that it matters, but I felt more convinced of the narrative when I was sure of the author's broad base.
One more feature that attracted me was the unusual narration. It was a non-linear narration. And perhaps, it is clear to me that the use of first person non-linear narration added much more depth to the story.
I have never ever read a psychological thriller such as this ever. And to expect one in my mother tongue, Malayalam, was certainly unexpected. This is definitely a must read for all those looking for an unusual, yet highly awarding experience. I guarantee, that you will finish the book wanting for more.
