Worst Book I Have Ever Read
Initially I was very interested in this book, the cover looked interesting and when I read the back it sort of reminded me of One Hundred Years of Solitude. It was slow to begin with but I continued to read it because I heard it would eventually pick up. This never happened. This book was a complete waste of my time. Not only is it horribly written and completely unoriginal (the basic story is taken from the Mahabharat), you never connect with any character in the book and towards the end you are really wishing this train wreck will end sooner than later. There are so many names and subplots in this book that literally towards the third chapter, each chapter being about six pages, you have forgotten half of the information that was given to you and all of the characters story lines. For instance, the main character has three names that are interchangeble throughout the book (Drupadi, Panchaali, and Krishnaa). Divakaruni has truly released an amazing piece of rubbish that cannot even be called literature but should be refered to as a strain of poorly worded sentences that deserves to be thrown in the garabage and forgotten about as soon as possible. DO NOT READ!!!! IT'S SOOO INCREDIBLY BAD
