The Immortals Of Meluha

Author: Amish
Price: Rs. 295

This book has been an experimental accident for me. I was just going through http://www.infibeam.com and saw this book. The cover and the title inspired me to order this book. I was sure of delivery failures, but to my surprise, book was delivered the next day itself.

This is the first time I am attempting a book review. I feel, nothing should be exposed in the review. So if you want to know about the story, plot or even the characters, you will be disappointed to read this. I am not even mentioning the name of the characters.

When I started reading it, I was comparing it with the legendary characters, researching about the Indus Valley Civilization. It was a bit difficult to digest the language that was used initially, found it ridiculous to be very frank. Then I started reading it from an Author’s point of view, and the experience was awesome. I have categorized this book as the book of philosophy, or the self help book to stop stereotyping. There is something beyond the story, the characters and the plot that the author is trying to express.

As far as reading experience was concerned, it was a roller coaster ride. As Anil Dharker has said, it is definitely a page turner. Sometimes the story is handled too fast, while sometimes lot of emphasis is given on unnecessary things. But defending this point, I feel that Author has some future references to make. Nevertheless, I was not bored to read it, I was just impatient to complete it. I was not disappointed at all. The end is not a mystery as such, but it is handled very cleverly.

There are many references to the social instability, comparisons between the perfect society and the evils. Author has shared his political views through various characters. The issues like terrorism, war, social outcast are handled in a very mature way. Also, the book gives information about various things that were known, but the reason was still the mystery. The book perfectly handles the argument between the scientists and the blind followers.

Few instances clearly reflects that this book is written by an entrepreneur or an MBA graduate. Amish is an IIM-K alumni and is just 35 years old. Excellent job as a writer. Waiting for your books!
