really liked it

My first mythological fiction and it was such a delight. This book takes you through the story of the most beautiful apsara in Heaven and the tragic circumstances she endures. The author, while narrating what’s possibly one of the most controversial love stories in Hindu mythology, addresses the many issues and injustice faced by women in the world of men that is Heaven. Although a bit repetitive in writing, the author unfolds the story beautifully, sewing together the legends of Man and God, capturing the mortal and the immortal world in a winding narrative.
On the whole, through a character as strong as Menaka, the reader is assured of a sliver of hope that maybe Heaven is not the world of men after all.
