Good read, the author has really worked hard and done some excellent research. However, after a couple of hours of listening it become a bit boring.
I read this book when I was only 12 years old in URDU. Listening audio is always fascinating. The book written over 175 years ago still tastes like cognitive feast. Not in Victorian English it is easy to understand and all the terms are still very commonly used. Fantastic tale of crime, wickedness, royal courts of the era, bravery, suspense, romance distinguish and equitable details. It will take you in India 1830's. I love to see this in a Hollywood movie but movie (although The Deceiver was made) would not do justice with the book.
The only regret I have is the ill pronunciation of Hindustani language by Sanjive. Although, Sanjive speaks English in fascinating accent but he has murdered Hindustani words, slangs and Muhammadan words such as Inshallah, Ameen. I had to remove one Star. I wish he would have gotten help with pronunciation. Overall a book every Indian, Pakistani, British, American and anyone interested in ancient India should read. Must listen....
Very disappointed to find out that the books was about fable from Jesus and Bible.
Nothing against Christens but I would have not purchased it if it identified as a Christen book. To most of us fable from Bible does not interest. Good fables for church grandma.
