Vishwamitra is Dr Vineet s d but book but the writing style and narration convey the maturity of an erudite writer The book is an easy read and can be completed in one sitting by most readers also because despite not being a thriller the book is interesting and keeps the reader engaged all throughout Though the overarching theme is mythology, it is to author s credit that the book manages to convey a deeper meaning that human spirit should know no bounds As you read through the pages protagonist conveys the indomitable spirit Vishwamitra as a character is not unknown to readers of mythology we have grown up knowing him as an angry seer whose meditation was interrupted by menaka The exposition manages to convey the finer nuances of how the transformation to Vishwamitra would have taken place The way the finer creative details have been build into the plot are subtle yet beautiful As you flip through the pages you appreciate the vast amount of research and author s signature style of correlating mythology and science It is these nuggets that make it a pleasurable read The beauty of menaka Vishwamitra union is tasteful and esthetic.All in all a wonderful read with meticulous writing Sheer Brilliance A Remarkable Journey Never have I read a mythological book so intensely detailed It clearly reveals the amount of research been done by the author before it arrived into the reader s hands I thoroughly enjoyed the author s imagination that has been amazingly presented I could have finished the book in one go But I thought of extending this fabulous adventure with some brief pauses to relive the events in my imagination The use of scientific terms in this great mythological saga to explore the logical possibilities is absolutely mind blowing Also, it would be great to see a graphic version of this fantastic adventure A television series would also be superb if presented exactly as described in the book I would highly recommend this book to all Its awesome Viswamitra,one of the most intriguing characters of Indian History was portrayed well by the debutant author..the transformations and emotions of viswamitra right from his childhood to the scene where he s named Brahmarshhi were well captured..Especially the scenes where he s transformed from viswarath to viswamithra and final confronting scene with vashista and viswamitra realizing his final destiny were classic..The life journey of viswamitra giving us a subtle message that a human can achieve anything beyond possibilities by sheer willpower and determination was put forth in a convincing and believable way by the author..The fusion of Science,Myth and Philosophy was worked well adding depth to the main characters Menaka Viswamitra relation was well portrayed and we ll be getting a feel that viswamitra is a complete man who perfectly lived through DHARMA ARTHA KAMA MOKSHA phases,Should appreciate author for capturing this essence and portraying this in a very believable and understandable way.Book is fast paced and will be completed in a single sitting for avid readers.There re no dull moments anywhere in the book and trust me You won t regret this..Kudos to the author and hail VISWAMITRA THE MAN WHO DARED TO CHALLENGE THE GODS Excellent read.The choice of writing about the character of Vishwamitra did not fascinate me initially However, I knew the book would be worth a read for I was familiar with the author s blog, decode Hindu mythology www.decodehindumythology.com Fortunately, the book was way better than I had ever expected It was nearly flawless Storyline is intriguing Major characters are sketched well Pacing is appropriate, except for the ending And of course, the writing style gets you hooked Extremely well researched, keeps the reader wondering about the sources of such in depth information, most of which are from the puranas, rig veda etc The research about a non clich character such as Vishwamitra would have been cumbersome, but the author s successful effort is clearly shown in the book It does a great job in conveying the story in a fascinating manner An occasional, rare grammatical error, mostly missing articles, but it does not affect the flow of the story The ending could have been paced in a better way though, but you can t deny that it s a great climax Overall, if you re a mythology lover, or simply a book lover, get Vishwamitra, it won t disappoint you, and you ll find yourself glued to the book in no time An easy 5. Dr Vineet Aggarwal did a good job with his debut Vishwamitra It a simple read and the research done by the author is visible The tale of Rishi Vishwamitra is told is such a way that the reader is hooked to the book It is the story of Vishwartha and his transformation to Vishwamitra The story begins with Satyavati, her marriage and birth of Yamadagni Vishwartha The author talks in detail about the encounters between Vasishta and Vishwartha For me, these encounters were the most interesting parts of the book.I would recommend this book to anyone interested in philosophy, mythology. As a first book by the author it is an impressive work The way the book has been written is good and keeps you well engaged The book tries to balance mythology and science which is done well and you can actually see science connecting to mythology For those who have a very basic understanding of mythology this book will make your help you develop a rational attitude towards understanding mythology Author has done his background work really well and it becomes evident by the depth he reaches in explaining things The book has used some innovative concepts like replacing chapters with adhyays which are well connected and have a smooth flow Also the way message is well conveyed Hence, I can say Do read it once. A disappointing read Did not expect much as I surely judged the book from its cover, it felt like a children s book Sadly, it is written for adults The book attempts to tell the story of a Saint who in Hindu Mythology is one of the intriguing figures The book fails in all respects the story, the characters, the climax and whatnot One of the many novels written in the wake of The Shiva Trilogy, this book fails even to match them I would recommend you read it for fun though. When Satyavati, Wife Of Rishi Ruchik, Exchanges With Her Mother The Magic Potion For Bearing A Child, They Change Not Just Their Children S Destiny, But Also The History Of Mankind Born Of This Mix Up Is Vishwamitra, The Son Of A Kshatriya, Who Strives To Become A Brahmarishi The Ultimate And Most Powerful Of All Gurus Vishwamitra Is The Powerful Story Of A Brave But Stubborn, Haughty Yet Compassionate, Visionary King Of Aryavarta Who Not Only Acquires Material Wealth Through Military Conquests But Also Becomes One Of The Most Well Known Sages Of All Times A very good and detailed research about one of the famous Character of Indian mythology A nice and apt narration Loved each and every part of the story One of the highlights of the Book was the full feel of reading a mythology as it was named Adhyaye instead of Chapters A must read book Full Review Dr Vineet Aggarwal is a budding Author I have gone through his book and found it to be quite interesting especially since it comes from a first time writer The journey of Vishwamitra is quite well defined and the climax is stunning.
