Review: "The Oath of the Vayuputras" by Amish

Author:  Amish
Type: Fiction 
Pages- 575
Publishing house: Westland PressBook: The Immortals of Meluha


There are too many characters. You had it in the 2nd part itself. You have already laden your mind with those. Along with that, you have complex warfare tactics involving the geography of the area leading the reader to scratch his/her head to understand it more better. These setups are unwelcoming and make you rethink if Amish, really is India’s first literary pop star. There are flaws but, in the end, one couldn’t understand and imagine what’s there, as the reader inches closer towards the end of the novel. I wouldn’t much discuss about the prose and the characters but in the end, the book has much to offer than a beautiful story and characters. It gives you a strange sense of peace, and tranquillity lingers over your soul. Chapter 45: The final Kill, It is from where the real emotional ride starts and doesn’t break for a moment from then. The book has 54 chapters meanwhile. The book explores the vulnerabilities of relationships. It depicts, how as a human, we can be so immature and mature too. It explores and touches too many topics along the line up that in the end, you feel a bit numb. You feel to have got a sort of redemption by reading it. You get down with the characters and wish if you could have changed the course of the fate. But alas!! There ain’t any fairy tale. More or less, it gives you the feeling of reading a scripture. Because the feelings that you carry after reading the series is, it can be only felt after reading great books indeed.

Om Namah Shivaiy. 
The Universe bows to Lord Shiva. I bow to Lord Shiva


Verdict: Would strongly advocate for this book to everyone. It is a must-read for those who believe in God.
