    Enlightening and Thought Provocative Plot but Overtly Clichéd

    I, just like those who read Chanakya's Chant and Rozabal Line, waited with incessant fervour so long for Ashwin Sanghi's third book "The Krishna Key" and with FlipKart's peerless service, got this the first day of its release.

    Like his other two books, The Krishna Key as well, exhibits Ashwin Sanghi's profound love for History. The way he gathers intricate information and most importantly the way he narrates for common folk to comprehend makes him deserve the accolades of literature.

    Ashwin Sanghi is 'The Father of Modern Historical Fiction'

    If you've read any of Sanghi's other books, this novel will knock your socks off. If you haven't, then reading this will make you want to read more. I can actually smell thrill in those 470 pages. I read this latest work of Sanghi's just the way I ingested the last one, "Chanakya's Chant". With zest. Ashwin Sanghi is a gifted writer who knows how to salt the page with just enough suspense and a gentle touch of fact.
    He leads the reader on a journey that ends up leading you to a deeper faith ...

    Mystical and Rivetting

    Eagerly waited for this excellent edition after having read the ARozabal line and Chanakya's Chant by the same author. Ashwin has once again produced a gripping narrative of modern day Avataar. Close knit referendum to previous yug and the emergence of Modern day avataar of bhagwaan Krishna in the protagonist is rivetting and leaves the reader agape in astonishment. I shall tag the book as a Spiritual thriller. Ashwin is far more excellent than the likes of Dan Brown. Marvellous read for all

    Very well researched book!

    Cleary a masterpiece! I have read all the 3 books written by the author and I have to say with each book I am deeply amazed with the extent of hardwork/research/technical brilliance that Mr Sanghi has put into while penning down this book. I would personally rate this book in one of the top ten books I have read in my lifetime! Great work Mr Sanghi & team!

    Completed reading The Krishna key in record time (my personal record - 1.5 days). Very very transformational indeed! The best of the 3 bo...

    A very well researched and though provoking book

    Superb book to read. Keeps you interested in every page you read, keeps you glued on to the book with the mystery, intrigue and thrill. Always enjoyed books which have a religious or mythological connection but this one takes the cake. Ashwin Sanghi not only had a great imagination but strong fundamental knowledge about science, astrology, ancient history and spirituality. How he weaves a story using all this is simply terrific. A must read for everyone who has always questioned these four di...

    Mythology, History , Science a perfect remix.

    Spent couple of night to get it finished, but trust me it’s worth doing. 470 pages of roller-coaster ride. It will bind you till the last page. The fact, scientific approach to Indian mythology is really amazing.
    Weather you have interest in mythology or not, you can’t stop getting amazed by richness of Vedic civilization. I am sure you won’t be disappointed to get a copy soon.

    Indian Mythology remixed to a heady Thriller!!

    I first read Ashwin when he was "Shawn Haigins". When i Read "Rozabel Line" .. i was blown away.. I thought, if there was an indophile.. it was this guy.

    I prebooked The Krishna Key and was lucky enough to receive an autographed copy through Flipkart. Loved the narrative style, awesome plot.. For anyone who is intrigued about India, especially this generation of Indians, including myself,will find a lot of interesting sub plots in the book. Sometimes it was difficult to separate fact from ...

    A very good novel

    I have read Ashwin Sanghi's previous novels and I would say this is best of his works. I finished it in one sitting. Though it bears stricking resemblances to Dan Brown's novels and his character especially Robert Langdon. But those are initial hiccups when you start to read. But a few chapters into it, you will be engrossed in it.

    He has done an exhaustive research on the Mahabaratha, the vedic civilizations etc and that shows. I preordered this book by just reading the premise and it didn'...

    Surly "Dan Brown has an Indian contender".

    I am still living in the novel so I don't know what I am writing... Actually I finished it in a single sitting..... To me it is a Indianized Dan Brown novel... A journey with saini & Radhika....A complete marvel rather "work of art" with almost all good things that a good novel must have.....Coherently written, full of facts and hypothesis a nice balance between mythology and reality(will notice it from very first page). Some interesting inputs on India's pride Taj Mahal, Somnath and finally ...
