Astounding, 30 May 2006
Swarup uses his intellectual charm to make you turn the pages of this book right to the very end. The simple but articulate style of writing only appears to be melodramatic on the surface but underpins a great storyline that unfolds and alternates between tragic and comic. The book is thoroughly entertaining and the authors sharp wit adds to a highly inventive narrative which will cease you from the very beginning. A short review does not do justice...it must be read to be loved!!!Astounding!
