Mahabharata is one of the interesting epics in the Indian mythology. Every character of this epic is notable; one of them is Karna who is the greatest interest among the writers. I always look forward reading Mahabharata and this is the sole reason I accepted reviewing this book. I would like to thanks the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 🙂
This book narrates a story of Karan Vir Oberoi, a renowned real-estate tycoon based in New York. He frequently gets nightmare depicting some ancient warrior in golden earring and armor. Trying to brush it off, he gets curious to know who this person is.
During all this, he miraculously survived an attack and becomes more determined to find the answers. Searching for answers, he comes to India and fell Déjà vu at various circumstances.
On the other hand, the author has narrated the tale of Karna. Who is a fierce warrior, the martial-arts expert and generous king of Anga. The author has beautifully narrated the birth of Karna, his childhood and how he struggled hard to prove his ability. In short, the author has retold the story from the point of view of Karna.
Presently, Karan is unconscious. Is there any similarity between these past and present events? This book travels to solve the mystery.
The language is easy and narration is smooth which helps to finish this book in two sittings.
This book is good for those who don’t know Mahabharata’s story and wanted to read more about Karna. The author wanted to link between Karan and Karna’s story, but I didn’t find it impressive. The author has mostly written about Karna leaving me to think what follows Karan. A sequel to this book is coming, but the author should have ended this book on an interesting note which doesn’t happen. The dedication and introduction could have been shorter giving more space to the story. The only interesting part in this book is to read about Karna and his voice. The sketches are also good. I think this book could have been more interesting if the author has written equally about Karan too. If you love Mahabharata and want to read about Karna then you can give it a read.
