Stunning book encompassing Indian philosophy, geography, and a thriller!
6 July, 2014
The fascinating start of the Shiva trilogy that keeps you going until you "unfortunately" reach the end and you wonder why you did not get # 2 book! Not only a very addictive thriller, but so well done with Indian philosophy, geography etc... and a story line that plays a movie in your mind.
The writing style is very flowery and very Indian and flavorful even though sometimes you read a discrepancy between the old times when it takes place and the current language that we hear nowadays.
But you take to it. The heroes become YOUR heroes and friends, you understand the choices they are confronted with and you have no other way but think about your own life and own choices in your own world and time.
This is very well done. And I would actually recommend it to all those who study yoga, Indian civilization and culture because this comes out of this culture. Even those who are tickled by a natural curiosity about India may want to delve into this trilogy.
Enjoy with all your heart!
