Book Review: The Oath of the Vayuputras

Categories: Book Review
Comments: No

Amish’s latest offering in his Shiva Trilogy, ‘The Oath of the Vayuputras’ has been an absolute let down. With high hopes after reading the first two in the set, the seasoned reader is almost sure to feel tragic. The first 200 pages of this unnecessarily long book were boring, to put it mildly. The rest of the 350 pages were made unnecessarily long where a few things could have sufficed. In fact, there are many gaping mistakes and oversights in the whole book, that the reader is left to wonder whether at all the book was edited or not. The first two books ‘The Immortals of Meluha’ and ‘The Secret of the Nagas’ were thrilling and fast paced, where the Read more

Book Review: Best Kept Secret

Jeffrey Archer’s third volume of his Clifton chronicles contains very little surprises, and would have been considered a great hit had it been penned by someone less illustrious than Lord Archer. Considered to be one of the most talented and extraordinary story tellers alive, this book has at some points let down the reader who expects a lot more from Archer.

Book Review: The Krishna Key

Categories: Book Review
Comments: No

The Krishna Key is supposedly a thriller that will keep you engaged and will be a delight for conspiracy theorists. Well, it is almost all that it claims to be, but just a bit shy of being there at the very top, The book is incredibly well researched and tells the tale of a modern man’s illusion into trying to find Krishna’s great legacy left behind to mankind. In that process emerges a hero, Professor Ravi Mohan Saini who is an expert on Lord Krishna. It is upon Saini that falls the onerous task of trying to save the world from the clutches of a mad man who is falsely led to believe that he is the tenth and final avatar of Vishnu. Read more
