4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
Although I did find the ending a little contrived, it didn't detract from a very good piece of writing. I would also have liked to see what happened to Aparajati, after the ending. Would she be another cog in the wheel_ preserving the status quo, would she like many others suffer "compassion fatigue" as she tries to change all that is wrong in Indian society...

3.0 out of 5 stars Aparajita
Some interesting and, at times, startling facts about women's rights or rather lack of rights but
generally lacked depth regarding character and story.

I had a lot of empathy for her story and it does sound all to familiar unfortunately. Thank you Mangala for writing this and bringing this appalling situation to light. If domestic violence wasn't brushed under the carpet as much as it is, if people were not so willing to accept it, it wouldn't be such a problem.

This review is from: APARAJITA--The Woman Who Fought Back, And Won. (Kindle Edition)
Beautifully written book. Brilliant ending. Lyrical descriptions of Bharat interspersed with the reality of the suffocating social and cultural norms that continue to hamper equality there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic story for women in this world, 16 May 2014

This review is from: APARAJITA--The Woman Who Fought Back, And Won. (Kindle Edition)
This book depicts how women are treated in India. It illustrates the backward thoughts of elders and their offspring. The main character is an extremely intelligent woman who does her utmost to put things right and do herself and her injustice. Wonderfully written and thought provoking. The author should be congratulated.

4.0 out of 5 stars WOW!What a Story!!, 27 Mar 2014

This review is from: APARAJITA--The Woman Who Fought Back, And Won. (Kindle Edition)
A painful tale. A fantastic story. Maybe a little confusing at times but probably because I didn't discover the glossary at the back til I finished the book. A good read for a woman who perhaps is doubting her worth. In fact anyone who needs a pointer of hold on it can get better sort of thing!

This review is from: APARAJITA--The Woman Who Fought Back, And Won. (Kindle Edition)
Most people are unaware of the problems of women in certain countries who are widowed, divorced without choice or single. It makes for very sad reading the 21st century. However, I'm glad I read it

This review is from: APARAJITA--The Woman Who Fought Back, And Won. (Kindle Edition)
Gives a good insight into life in an undeveloped part of India.
An interesting read but with so many similar names it takes a while to identify who is who and when

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fabulous read, 23 Oct 2014
This review is from: APARAJITA--The Woman Who Fought Back, And Won. (Kindle Edition)
I have not enjoyed a book as much as this for a long time. I loved all the little stories she tells. You must read it during the day, it kept me up half the night I couldn't put it down. I didn't want it to end. I would definitely read more books by this author.

This review is from: APARAJITA--The Woman Who Fought Back, And Won. (Kindle Edition)
I would have appreciated the translations at the beginning of the book, rather than having to guess throughout the text.
A really great book, an excellent read. Thank you. I feel privileged to have read it, thank you
