I have long been a fan of Samhita Arni and this current offering does not disappoint at all. I'm in the middle of reading this and didn't want to wait until I'd finished to write the review. This such an excellent retelling and written brilliantly. Fast paced and visual. I can almost see this being made into a movie!
Fast- paced, simple language and a wonderful storyline make this book a powerhouse..What do good books do? Leave you with a feeling of wanting more and make you delve into the characters, in turn pique your interest to such an extent that you seek to know more about the times and the people that it deals with..The Prince does that to you and more, giving one a glimpse into the Man behind the epic Silappadikaram..It's a journey within a journey..This is my first book of Samhita Arni's and there's no stopping me from digging into her other works..This is one ride you don't want to miss.
