An ordinary book
12 July, 2014
I would rate this as very ordinary novel and the Indian mythology has been presented in a quite dramatic fashion. I respect writer's fancy and imagination but I don't buy the association of any kind of reality with this narration. Somehow If you start associating with this religion , this might offend you but if you think "Shiva" as a character and a worldly figure , would come to terms with this depiction.
If you have watched "Lord of the Rings" and Harry Potter " movies which are again the results of great research and imagination as in case of Lord of the Ring where Tolkien did great research on Elves , Hobbits and Ogres, you would have treated this book in a very ordinary fashion. the Outrageous response is just because that Indian audience is not exposed to such glorified picturesque narration of mythology.
It might help the adrenaline rush in teens and people who are tending towards maturity and consciousness but I believe that intelligentsia will not buy anything presented in this book.
This is fiction best concocted with mythology ever seen and the story telling style is kind of a movie which actually attracts the reader however there is nothing special in the plot but events and dialogues make this different.
A little infusion of sensuality has also been chosen by the author to appeal readers who are still used to watch movies that have got sex and action both elements , its very Indian novel.
