Chanakya’s Chant by Ashwin Sanghi – a review

Saurabh Chawla |

Chanakya's chant by ashwin sanghi

Author: Ashwin Sanghi

Publisher: Westland

Number of pages: 450

Genre: Thriller

My Verdict:
I took up this book after I read ‘The Krishna Key’ by Ashwin Sanghi and I truly loved his work in both the books. I would like to give one star more to this one as it is very much well researched and deeply studied book which anyone else would feel like a torture to read, research and study so deeply.
Secondly, the story or the plot described is so eloquent that one starts reading the book and is forced to turn the pages as the story goes on. It is not possible to keep the book down once one has started reading the book. One thing I liked most about this book is one chapter is in the past at Chanakya’s time and the following chapter is present time which enables one to relate to the concept the author has tried to put up.
Every character and their respective roles are so precisely defined. The politics, the games the politicians play is well described and author is very much successful in portraying that beautifully. Writing this kind of book is a tough job and Ashwin Sanghi has done it nicely.
I took around 2 weeks to finish this book and I am happy with the book as I did it in just 2 weeks, that too with tight schedule. Somehow I managed to read the book every day or every second day in the night. Well, this can be due to my love for suspense/thriller genre also.
I would truly recommend this book to anybody who loves to read history and political type of books as it will be of a great interest to them. The vocabulary used is somewhat difficult in the chapters which are shown in the past (I felt so, but still it’s an interesting read). Truly recommended book.

My rating: 4.5/5
