5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant book, 13 April 2010
This review is from: The Palace of Illusions (Paperback)
The idea behind this book is amazing - a female perspective on the events of the Mahabharata. Somehow, seeing the story through the eyes of Draupadi, or Panchali as she is often called, gives the story a really human touch. It also gives you a totally different view on things.

I especially love the way Krishna is portrayed in the book. What is clever is the way that that Panchali talks about the rumours she has heard about him being a god, and his strange exploits, and how she is not sure because she cannot believe that he could be a god.

Overall, this book is definitely worth a read. If you know the story of the Mahabharata, then you will enjoy the interesting new perspective on things. And if you do not know the story, then this will be a great introduction for you.
