did not like it

With google.com and timeofindia.com mentioned in the acknowledgments, one doesn't have to look further to get a sense of the kind of book that Chanakya's Chant is. Narrating two parallel stories side by side - that of Chanakya and the other of a modern day political strategist and his protege, the book ends up appearing as a school boy attempt at historical fiction. The terrible book also proves that a PhD in Creative Writing is no yardstick to measure the quality of the author. Worth avoiding if you're a serious reader!

Rajat Pillai The novel that is making waves around the country, 'Chandragupta:Path of a Fallen Demigod' (NATIONAL BESTSELLER) is now on Flipkart and Infibeam. If your love a fast paced thriller and love Indian history/culture. This novel is for you.


Dharinya I'll probably be the only who liked krishna key over chanakya 's chant .


Praveena I should have read your review before picking up the book!
