This review is from: Kalki (Hardcover)
I get the impression that this is the kind of book that you have to 'study' rather than just read to get the full benefit of it.
I enjoyed the first half, and it brought up some interesting questions, but after the 'event' I felt the plot went downhill and was more a vehicle for the message Vidal wanted to communicate than a believeable and engaging story.
It did not encourage me to explore any of his other works, but having discussed it with other I know a lot of people disagree with me
