    Description

    The Mahabharata Secret is a suspense thriller which leads Vijay, the protagonist, to a secret in the Mahabharata which was buried by Ashoka over 2300 years ago.

    Summary Of The Book

    When the nuclear scientist Vikram Singh is murdered, his nephew Vijay receives four cryptic emails, which lay out a trail of adventure before him. This trail leads to a secret buried in the Mahabharata over 2300 years ago by the great king Ashoka.

    Ashoka had uncovered this lost text of the Mahabharata and deemed it too dangerous for humanity. He had therefore hidden it and formed The Nine, a group of great minds entrusted with the protection of the terrible secret. Each of the Nine had been given one piece of the puzzle and thus, none of them could complete it by themselves.

    However, one of the Nine had given in to evil, and had murdered each of the Nine one by one. Vikram Singh was a part of this Nine. On his death, he passes on his secret to his nephew and implores him to find and hide the secret before terrorists do so.

    In Afghanistan, the Buddha statues were bombed by the Taliban. In the wreckage, they discover something which tells them that the legends of a great weapon in the Mahabharata were indeed true.

    Thus, unfolds a race to the secret which could destroy the entire world if it falls into the wrong hands. Who will uncover the secret first, Vijay and his trusted friends or the terrorists? This spine chilling adventure combines history, mythology, suspense and science in the present day world.

    It's an OK-ish novel

    I bought this book because of the hype surrounding it, although i must say i am disappointed by it i.e it doesnt live up to its expectations. The plot tends to get slow at times and a few things are predictable. Few technical mistakes about Intelligence Bureau but that can be overlooked. Although a lot of research has gone into the novel but you can tell that the novel is actually written by a debutant. Having read other novels of same class I can safely say this was not among the best of th...

    Good debut novel

    Just completed reading the novel. Definitely should appreciate the work by Doyle, really a great debut novel. But if you forget its a debut novel and write a review, then i think i can give it a 3 star. Reason, is i felt the pace getting slow down many a times because of lot of breakages while starting a conversation and after ending a conversation; even sometimes, conversation seemed sloppy; while solving the clues, the people seemed solving easily rather than with hard thinking, atleast the...

    The writer needs a lot to learn to write suspense thrillers

    This thriller, though promises a lot at the outset, falls way short of it's potential, and the writer has everything to do with it. The writer needs to learn to write a good thriller, and the subtleties of it. The essence of a good thriller is never to give the suspense away, and rather to form it to a crescendo, to keep the reader thirsty and perched, to withdraw just while something is about to be given, till the last, exactly the opposite of what is there in this book. I'm disappointed. Go...

    Poor plot

    The author gives a grand narration throughout the book of a secret only to reveal a shoddy climax at the end. Waste of money and time

    Hard try but not thrilling

    First of all, i guess the author is using a pen name & is actually an Indian.... His style of writing gives it away... Although the writer has made desperate attempts to make it a thriller but in my opinion failed completely... for me it was a waste of time... Got fooled by the pen name :(

    Considerable if you are looking for some bollywood like drama.

    The book some how retains a typical Indian's way of writing. I'm not against Indian writing, but if you are a fan of it, it is a book I would strongly recommend.

    The secret is a give away although a lot has been tried to keep is unpredictable. There is no smooth transition between scenes. The author has a lot to improve when it comes to grab your attention and keep you glued to the book.

    The positives would be the theme itself. It is nice to see an Indian author write about something other ...

    My review

    delivery by flipkart is cool !! i started liking historic fictions after reading the great Krishna Key... but to say frankly this book disappointed to the core.. i have completed this book in 14days the longest for any book for me... better choice is to go for Krishna Key once again rather than wasting your time and money

    Below average depiction of a subject with great potential

    The starting of the novel is undoubtedly appealing but it loses that hold thereafter. You could easily see through the nature of the characters and none of them had any element of surprise or idiosyncrasies to make them stand out. The climax could have been much better or at least should have been depicted with more details to make it more exciting as the reader could have connected to it well enough. One should only read it, if he/she has some spare time and no other options for entertainment.
