Book Review of
Divyastra by Nimish Tanna
Synopsis of any book never confused me more. I had to read the complete book to actually understand what the synopsis meant. Every chapter was more confusing than the last one until The showdown. I really felt like leaving the book midway many times but I am a hopeful reader and the hope of an interesting end made me finish it.
Opening Lines: The Dr. S Bhagwanth auditorium was buzzing with murmurs as attendees kept pouring in from the bottle-necked entrances.

I must say nobody has ever described science to us when we where kids like Dr. Vyas does in lecture. I wish we had teachers like him at school to keep our interest alive in science (I am a commerce student 😉 ). The blend of mythology and science in the storyline is interesting. Facts stated seems logical for I am not sure if true.
There are some editing issues though and sometimes you realize it when you look up the dictionary. Language is really simple and holds your interest tightly throughout.
Few chapters in between were completely unnecessary. These chapters are like those typical Indian new generation author’s stint of bringing sexuality and sensuality in the story to make it marketable. Why you have to ruin the story by bringing in an unnecessary fat Indian wedding & hook-up story?
I would have really liked this book without the “how to get the girl rules” part. The only interesting part that held my attention was the confusion that let me to the last chapter. The book ends with an interesting turn and hence leaves scope for a sequel.
Overall an average read with just 2 stars, I would have given it one more star if it had some good editing. Those errors really ruin the flow. Do read it if you like mythology and have an inclination towards science.
My Rating: 2/5 stars
