KURUKSHETRA | Krishna Udayasankar | Book Review

 KURUKSHETRA | Krishna Udayasankar | Book Review

KURUKSHETRA - the third and the last series of the The Aryavrata Chronicles Trilogy. The first two books in this trilogy are Govinda and Kaurava
It really took lot of willpower to get invovled initially wiht the story and the writer's style. The book revolves around the war. The good part about the book is all the characters shown in the movie are projected in a Gray styled. Meaning, None of the characters told in the story are either projected in a negative or positive way. Even, Shikhandin who has feminine qualities is considered as great warrior.
To be frank, I am highly disappointed with the book, since its the same Mahabharata told in the different way so called creativity

If you are a die-hearted fan of Mahabharata, I am sure you won’t love this book. Its just the edited version of Mahabharata,
If you are not familiar with Mahabharata, you will be wondering whether you landed in the world of Latin and Greek. and my kind advice don't ever think of reading the book, if you have not read the previous two books.

1. Complexity of the language.
2. The epic names has been changed.
