My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Interesting read from Bheem’s POV. What drew me to read this book is that the author retold this story from the famous Malayalam work Randaamoozham by MT Vasudevan Nair. Mahabharat always fascinated me with its intriguing and multi-shaded characters and twisted plots. It renders one to think and go in depth of the characters. One is not simply positive without any negatives in them or the vice versa. The logical narratives from the POV of human psyche and supernatural occurrences which were often shown as mythical or godly powers were given some scientific explanations.
Although Bheem is not on the top of my favourite characters of MB but in this book the second Pandava prince was shown with a different shade of practicality, observations and actions both positive and negative along with the superhuman strength which was usually etched upon the character.
