    Description

    About the Author :-

    Nilanjan P. Choudhury’s debut novel Bali and the Ocean of Milk received wide critical acclaim and was a brief best-seller.   This is his second novel and the first adventure in the Chatterjee Institute of Detection series. He confesses to having studied at IIM Ahmedabad and IIT Kanpur and hopes that this will not be held against him. He lives in Bangalore with his wife, a daughter, a mother-in-law, a day job in the IT industry and a home loan. It’s a wonder he manages to write anything at all apart from EMI cheques. He can be reached at www.nilanjan.net

    Bali and the Ocean of Milk

    Frothy manthan, indeed!

    You would love it for the following, at least I did!
    Its humor, even in somber moments.
    Its gripping pace, just when you are beginning to feel that things are sobering down in the three worlds!
    Its anecdotal tributes to some of our childhood heroes, books and comics!

    You wished the author has not rushed through on some sections, you certainly wish Indrah was less of a Tricksie Turncoat, his redemption was almost Bollywoodish!

    But you certainly would wish that the...

    Good book, written with roller coaster speed, worth a read

    1st thing 1st, I haven't bought this from flipkart and just pick it as random choice from a book store. Despite of lesser star given by goodreads.com (3 star i guess), I thought of to give this one a try.
    Pros :
    - Well try was not at all bad, I was not sure if it happen the way writer narrates the story or some other way but on the whole a good book which worth a read.
    - All characters build, showed in a proper way that reader won't regret on anything.
    Cons :
    - 2 charater tara and her male in...

    Not worth it

    This is very poorly written book....not much efforts are put in or atleast I believe so....plot is also sagging, climax is also not so good....does not fall in any of the marquee author...language is poor or doesnot evoke attachment to the characters...language is cold...humour is flat and out of nowhere...Characters are not in sync with what they should be...I finished reading thinking that may be in the end author would redeem himself...but one of the worst book on this genre...

    Ok, but hasty ending spoils some fun

    Started like a 5 star meal, in between became dhaba fare and towards the end it was complete fast food from roadside stall..

    He he!!! In other words, its a really good book, I absolutely recommend it.. But its not a great book thought it started with a potential to be one...

    Jai veru, jai samba ;)

    A Good Mythological Fiction Finally!

    In the current Indian book market where the mythological fiction dominates, this book is truly a quality read. It is crisp, great imagination around the story of the churning of the ocean of milk, and the best part is no useless urban language that most authors succumb to for the characters to appear "cool". One of the finest books in this category. A highly recommended read.

    Humorous with touch of seriousness..!!

    Well after a long time i read a book which i found refreshing and at the same time it had a message in it. A perfect fiction with tinge of reality, It challenges age old myth that asuras are always wrong and gods are always right. At times the story does get boring but when u have a humorous approach you will surely like the book....

    Bali and the Ocean of Milk

    Quite fascinating book would recommend all to read and enjoy. Based on mythology, spiced with humor and politics which is quite interesting. Would not be surprised if some producer takes this up and makes a fantastic movie out of it.

    Good writing skills, but not happy with the story!

    The author has good writing skills. But I was disappointed that this was not a depiction of the true Bali. The author has changed this to a fiction and modified the story to a large extent. There is good humor, but in bad taste.

    Brilliant read

    Go and buy the book NOW! Yes, you heard me, buy it NOW. This is nothing like Meluha but it is everything that anyone who enjoyed Meluha would enjoy. This is something that any open minded Indian would like and anyone from around the world with a good sense of humour would like. A book worth reading….
