A powerful and gripping CHANT

Heady cocktail of Power, Politics, and History. A compulsive page turner. Brilliant narration and its interweaved with historical anecdotes. Fresh characters, gripping sub-plots, and wide knowledge on the topics. Go for it -- STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.

400 pages of bull

I picked up this book expecting another Shiva trilogy but it must have been my unluckiest day in months.

This novel has nothing to offer. The story is pretty ordinary. Plots are a hodgepodge of contemporary political and economic scams, dumbed down to the level of a house plant. The punch lines are borrowed from quotes, tweets, memes any other source available on the internet and badly forced into the story-line. Usage of words is often incongruous. Some very pathetic Munna-Bhai-esque practi...

TOP BOOKS

There are few authors in India who write exceptionally well. Ashwin is one of those. I am a vivid reader and read almost all the books that come my way. This stands first.

1. Chanakya Chant- Ashwin
2. Journey Of Two Hearts- Anuj Tiwari
3. How I braved Any Aunty - Varun Aggarwal
4. Life is what you make it- Preeti

Really a tiresome book .. disappointing

This book was a thorough let down after the Rozabal line. While Rozabal Line was itself not a great literary work itself, if one ignored the lame story, it actually had a lot of interesting historical insights on how Jesus may have been influenced by Indian Philosophy.. that itself was its redeeming aspect. Unfortunately CC had nothing of that sort. While the parts dealing with Chankya were bearly readable, the parts that dealt with his contemporary counterpart was, for want of a better word,...

Well written, nice data collection and presentation . Ashwin Sanghi has matured in this title and even understood or learned from previous book Rozabal Line .
Only complain about book is its loss of tracks in between chapters . Since both 2 stories are running parallels , there would've been much better ending of each chapter , it seemed like author in chase to bring suspense has ended each chapter at very unexpected point. So , every time I got entertained by a chapter and it ended makin me...

Waste of time - just riding on the name of Chanakya

I finished this book only since I bought it and started reading it. Its coarsely written, and Chanakya's dialogues are nothing but a collection of very famous quotes. Its real cheap to even give Patton's immortalized quotes as Chanakya's. Even though the author gives the glossary of quotes where he is drawing from, it does not do justice by having historic names in such comic fashion !

Tried to simplify the political situations more than anything....really bad concept, and worse writing !

~Average

How do you feel when you are watching a thriller when the climax is already known? The entire book is a cliche of all the Indian movies ! And the facts about Chanakya are also messed up ! The author has used all the possible quotes from the net to give Chanakya a superhuman form but fails miserably to give you the impact. Unless you want to feel good about Chanakya - you can easily avoid it

Chanakya's Chant

I was tempted by buy and read this book by Ashwin Sanghi after reading a few reviews at flipkart. The author has done his best to malign the greatest diplomat-cum-saint Chanakya. While I enjoyed the modern day story of Gangadhar running parallel to that of Chanakya of 2300 years ago, I was appalled at author's deliberate attempt to discredit everything Chanakya did for his nation at that time. Very few of the readers might have already read books portraying Chanakya as the hero and those who ...

Nice one time read... thats it!

The book looks unreal at several places... too fictitious! Though stories about Chanakya made the book interesting.. but the way the other protagonist functions makes him look as if the entire world of politics can be puppeted at his will. Though, at some places, the intelligence of the character impresses you, but it fails to make you believe that it exists.. and the entire book looks like a well written novel. There is not much in the book, in terms of language and philosophy, that might pu...
