I am a High School Sophomore and I chose to read this book for my research project on the Taj Mahal. I chose to read this book because I thought it would be interesting and because my teacher recommended it. I did not find it interesting at all. For a good portion of the book it mainly discusses previous rulers, their history, and impact they made on the future rulers and I think that it was too informative and unnecessary. It also goes into too much detail on the ruler’s conquest and fight to keep the throne and power. The main reason I did not like this book is because it took several chapters to begin discussing the Taj Mahal, and when it did, it did not help me as much as I thought it would. I could not answer most of my research questions with this book. When the book finally discussed the Taj Mahal it is too detailed about its architecture, design, calligraphy, and techniques on how they built it. It also discusses too much about the people involved it its construction. I felt the authors should have included more about Taj Mahal itself instead of all the history about their ancient rulers. It took me a lot to read this book and I would doze off frequently. The only thing I enjoyed about this book were the pictures. They showed the unique structures and patterns inside and outside of the Taj Mahal. Overall, I thought this book was very boring and I would only recommend it to people who are interested in history.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
