I ended up finishing this book in a few hours, and it was a good and interesting read.
In this book, Chitra Banerjee has narrated the story of Mahabharata, from the eyes of one of the main characters of the story itself - Panchaali or Druapadi.
I always feel fascinated with the Mahabharata epic story but I am amazed how Divakaruni's Palace of Illusions brings the story so alive and engaging.
Great to read before the Mahabharata. Gives a little look at the characters in a personal way. I loved this one of the permanent items on my list.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer

One of the few times that Mahabharatha is looked at from a woman's point of view. Makes an interesting read but probably could do better from a retrospective angle.Published 4 months ago by Khyati Makati
