By Ashwin Sanghi (Author); Description Five thousand years ago there came to earth a magical being called Krishna who brought about innumerable miracles.

After a point, i found it a bit tiring. The other thing that weighs down this book is the average writing. The dialogues, choice of words, all look a bit odd at many places, especially in the initial portions of the book. Can't shake of the feeling that Mr. Sanghvi has written this book primarily for an international audience.

At the end of it, its what the title says. A well researched, great plot, average writing, yet immensely readable. One person found this helpful. This is the first novel by the author that I read. It did not disappoint! The storyline and plot is extremely imaginative, though I could not help seeing similarities between this work and Dan Brown's the da Vinci Code. Obviously, it is not to say that this is in anyway unoriginal.

The storytelling and narrative is extremely fast paced, taut and smooth, and the book flies. The way the author has juxtaposed ancient Hindu scriptures and believes into modern day notions of science almost beguiles the reader into believing this fictional tale! It is an excellent mix of sci-fi, fantasy, action and adventure, something like Dan Brown's writings. The research into ancient scriptures and Indian mythology is deep, unlike many newbie authors who end up being shallow in such departments.

The gist of the plot is succinctly captured in the blurb, so I am not going into any of it here. Instead, I must comment on the style of writing of the author; the approach that the author seems to have taken in writing this novel.

It becomes apparent the author has written this novel with an international audience in mind. There are many instances where I couldn't help smile at the result of this deliberate attempt to 'belong' to a wider audience and mostly US audience at that.

For instance, there is a narrative that describes an Indian police officer arresting an important character. At the time of arrest, the officer informs the accused that a certain Article of the Indian Constitution gives him the right against self-incrimination, and that he may wish to engage a lawyer.

This style of presentation is alien and made-up. It does not happen in India this way. Police officer comes and arrests - simple. That's how it happens in India. This is clearly an attempt at making the novel more international, since audiences today are fed an overdose of Hollywood movies "you have the right to remain silent", etc A 'petrol pump', which is the standard term used in India, instead becomes a "gas station".

Characters have sandwiches and coffee at a road side eatery, rather than standard Indian dishes. There are various other smaller instances likewise where I couldn't help get a similar feeling.

Another thing the book lacks is character development. As with many other high octane adventure centric plots, the emphasis is on the thrill of the moment rather than in-depth characterisation. Finally, the end is rather abrupt, sudden and a bit of an anti-climax.

These hiccups do not take away from the inherent attraction of the novel, though. It is intended to be a thriller, and that it does! Good quality entertainment. Perhaps there was a compelling plot here, but it was weighed down by the writing. I'm Indian-American, so maybe it wasn't written for me. Clearly a lot of research went into it and it has some compelling moments I was going to give up after the first chapter but decided to give it a bit more of my time , but the editor should have caught a lot of what went wrong here.

Where to begin I appreciated the coauthorship with James Patterson on another book and read the great reviews on this author himself so I dived into this book.

The Krishna Key

Found myself irritated and struggling to make sense of layers upon puzzling layers of "clues" which then left me clueless while the actual characters in the book drew inane and nonsensical conclusions.

The characters did not seem very fleshed out and they were killed off quickly I saw this book being read by a friend and read the first chapter The pace is really fast and the cast of characters is rich and varied. The author seems to have done a lot of research and creates a plausible storyline.

However, in certain places the story seems to lose the pace. Like the the main characters coming out of dangerous situations rather smoothly, and the main villain committing crimes too easily without much resistance etc. So far as explanations of the historical and mythological contexts are concerned, there are far too many facts explained and sometimes feel disjointed from one another.

I would have preferred the author to stick to fewer historical artifacts and weave the story around them with greater detail. All in all however, it is an entertaining read, even for people with prior understanding of Indian history and culture.

I would recommend it just for the fact that it is a new genre from Indian English literature and hope to see more world class output from Indian authors.

He transformed himself into a sadhu and came to Yashoda's house begging for alms. Do you think that conspiracy theories are fun? As his body crumpled to the ground, she knelt down beside him and whispered into his ear, 'There was a reason why I asked you if you wanted to know more.

The characters are predictable, storyline attempts to be desperate. The characters did not seem very fleshed out and they were killed off quickly This emerges as a unique date for the Mahabharata war. The author's fixation with symbols and Maths and relating every single thing to mythology is annoying and most of the times you just flip through pages when he attempts to corelate and perhaps thinks that he is solving a mystery.

Iqbal was a Koli— a member of a fishing tribe. The way Sanghi manoeuvred the plot with a meticulous compilation of Mythological, Theological and Scientific facts is splendid.
