The best part about the narration is not just the way it flows, but also the first person narration by the antagonist of the story.
Also, the narration happens to be very visual. The readers can actually imagine the things happening, the details are such beautiful. Of course, you have to read it with your creative-mode on!
The book is about the serial killings happening in Mumbai. The killings follow a pattern and the presence of Indian mythological relationship with the whole plot confirms the typical Ashwin Sanghi presence!
I am always amazed by the way Ashwin Sanghi draws a similarity between the history, mythology and the contemporary world and actually writes about them all. But this time, it is just the contemporary Mumbai that he has written, which is a treat to the eyes.
The plot has been revealed in short chapters, leaving many loose ends for the readers to connect the dots.
The end is, of course, fantastic and not so guessable.
As I have already mentioned, I am a huge fan of Ashwin Sanghi, so my opinion is pretty biased. Having read all his work and Dan Brown’s as well, the book turned out to be quite predictable. Relating the things to Goddess Durga was apparently an easy task. If you love suspense, if you love fiction and if you love the spine-chilling description of minute details of a thriller, do read this book. You will not regret.
But, the book keeps on turning really filmy at some points that it might disappoint many people. The real-life connect is missing somewhere, somehow.
