  • Description
    "Be taken back to a time that is half history, half myth, and wholly magical … First published in 2008, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's The Palace of Illusions has received wide acclaim for giving a woman's take on the timeless tale that is the Mahabharata. Narrated by Panchaali, wife of the five Pandava brothers, the novel traces her life from fiery birth and lonely childhood, where her beloved brother is her only true companion; through her complicated friendship with the enigmatic Krishna; to marriage, motherhood and her secret attraction to the mysterious man who is her husbands’ most dangerous enemy. This tenth anniversary edition, complete with a new author’s note, celebrates once again a remarkable and deeply human story about a woman born into a man’s world."

    Must buy!

    The great epic written by Panchali's perspective. Not just righteous and great cause but it takes us through emotions of great worriors and women as well.

    Very poor

    The content for sure is good. But the print is very disappointing. There are finger prints on the book here and there. Cover of the book is torn. This purchase was a disappointment i must say. It has printing mistakes. Even some of the chapters are not even fully printed. Very very bad. It's the worst experience I've had.

    Slightly disappointed

    The book made things overly simplistic.
    Draupadi was a complex woman. The book however, ended up sharing an ordinary girl's views about life.
    Draupadi was anything but ordinary! There were complex emotions.
    Didn't like the book at all. Returned it even before completing.
