Empire of the Moghul: The Serpent's Tooth : The Serpent's Tooth (Paperback) Price: Rs.219

In the fifth installment to the bestselling Empire of the Moghul, The Serpent's Tooth, readers are returned to the Moghul empire, now eyed by Shah Jahan who must wrest it from his brothers.

Summary of the Book

Like the Moghuls before him, Shah Jahan must come to power by wresting it from his siblings, all of them rivals for the throne. However, his heart is darkened by a greater desire. Instead of glory fed by the demise of his opponents, this Moghul emperor dreams of building a monument to pay his last respects to his wife. A wife so beautiful that he will raise the most beautiful monument ever constructed and financially cripple his nation to do so. But in doing so, he becomes blind to his sons and their own Machiavellian agenda to wrest the empire from their father.

Expected more, very disapointed

I was looking forward to this title from Alex Rutherford. I have always had a big interest in Mughal history and I consider the rule of Shah Jahan to be the epitome of Mughal rule. However in the book the strength of character of Shah Jahan doesn't come out. All we get to know his that he waged wars and loved his women. I believe his character portrayal - his passions, weakness, arrongance etc could have been pictured strongly.

Another big let down was the conflict of Aurganzeb and Dara. The succession struggle and its aftermath only gets a passing mention. Only few real incidents have been used and they are also commonly known (Aurganzeb refusing to enter Dara's palace due to fear of assassination etc). I believe the author could have tried to go in to the minds of either Dara or Aurangazeb and sketched their view points, character traits better.

This book leaves behind a sense of what could have been rather than giving a satisfied feeling. I hope Alex Rutherford next installment turns out better.

Good read

Quick delivery (within 2 days after ordering).
Its a fast read and thoroughly enjoyable. Though not entirely true, the after-notes in every chapter is good, which reveals the truth according to history. Gets the reader to imagine because of the detailed narration.

Awesome series - coming from a person who dislikes history

This series has been really great. I do not like history as a subject as such, but the way these books have been written is captivating.

Once we start reading, we cannot hold back before completing it.

Go for it!

Continuation of the series

The series is good and I have all the volumes. Good for a general read. Historical fiction can be good as a general entertainer.
Can be boring at times with weird and long details of battle scenes.
100 words are difficult to think of....... MR FLIPKART

"Unputdownable"

Another fabulous offering from Alex Rutherford. History narrated flawlessly by a master story-teller. Slick and fast paced though perhaps not as gripping as "The Raiders" but still quite "unputdownable".
