This is a must buy book.Being a avid reader since childhood of classics,novels,historical biographies,spiritual and scientific books,I have a minimum knowledge of as to what sort of narration captures a reader's attention and makes a book, page turner.This is one of those books which does really well in 3 departments.Full kudos to the author for churning out a real delight,in spite of being a novice writer.
1)Premise of the novel is fascinating & very thought provoking.
2)The pace of the plot is just right.Not too slow,not too fast(Like Chanakya's chant).
3)The plot itself is not cheesy.It has some serious muscle to it.At no point I felt like I was reading the script of a bad bollywood movie.
I had bought this novel along with Chanakya's chant back to back in the same week.And,I could tell clearly where Chanakya's chant novel dropped the ball with respect to this one.
Amish has got some serious talents required for a good fiction writer,who can churn out some deadly novels.This is where Ashwin Sanghi(Writer of Chanakya's chant) clearly lacks and it shows.I feel Ashwin can be a better bollywood script writer than a novel or fiction writer.A novel requires lot of detail in every page without ever boring the reader.
In my opinion,get this book.Worth it!
