Detailed Review on Life as Freya
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.


A retelling of the Mahabharata this plot isn’t new and yet, it felt so because of the perspective. Set in Kurukshetra the story starts out on day 10 of the war and details the events that lead up to the death of Abhimanyu.

Igengar does a good job if describing the war and all that happens behind the scenes when the war is not on, in the camps and around the campfires. The main and support characters are rich in detail and it felt like I knew them.

There aren’t any loose ends but there is an abrupt end, smoothly delivered. The pace is good with a build-up towards climax, that kept me glued to the book.

I enjoyed Aditya Iyengar’s style of writing and language. The book is a breeze to read and an enjoyable one at that.

I’d recommend this book if your are a epic fan and even if you are not. :)
