I must admit that I bought this book completely by chance as I just wanted an interesting book regarding an Indian personality so I just did a general search on Amazon I came across this book...I had a vague idea of the Bandit Queen but, wanted to know more about her motives and reasoning as to what caused her to become a bandit, so I bought this book and I can honestly say that after reading this book that it really affected me in profound ways...I have so much love and respect for this woman and her continual fight for justice....She is a symbol of hope to any woman in the world. This book is very highly recommended and would easily put it into my top 5 most incredible books of all time...

Phoolan Devi, the bandit queen of India, an accidental title but one she deserved - this story is told by her. Not many people know who Phoolan Devi is, but after reading this book she is definitely a queen in my eyes! Her unfortunate circumstances along with her will to survive forced her into the hands of bandits but they took her in, respected her and made her their queen. The ordeal she went through at such young and tender age shocked me, made me thank god everytime i turned the pages of this book. A story of true courage, can easily bring anyone to tears!

Format: Paperback
This book is one of my all time favorite books. It is a wonderful account of her life, though some may dispute its authenticity. I do not care if this is fact or fiction made up by Phoolan. I do believe it is fact, however (after reading several other books about her). What matters is that this is her story, how she wanted to tell it. There is truth in that.
History is the same way. It cannot be "fact" per se. It is biased, twisted, etc. The truth is in what historians WANTED to convey. This book is Phoolan. If that's what you seek, this is what you want.
Though she was uneducated and poor, Phoolan still had a fire in her that resisted. This book is difficult to read but it is worth it in the end. Her life was not a waste. She was a victim of circumstance and did all that she could do. She was not perfect. She committed murder. She was a wild woman. It's a paradoxical thing to both love and hate this woman. Phoolan will always be remembered by me. She was amazing.

You need strong nerves to read this to the end, though it's hard to stop reading, either. A shocking account of life among India's lower castes and bandits.
