Review:- I love this awesome fiction read by Amish Tripathi. It was amazing experience. This book series become my ReRead type book series. The character of lord Shiva totally influence me. The description of Meluha in first book is awesome I love that beautiful detailing by author also a war description where Kartik is fighting, its amazing totally blow my mind. At last this book gives good massage of love.
All countries have atomic weapons now which is terrible weapon of human kind. We all know the incident of Heroshima & Nagasaki. We can co-relate atomic weapons with Brahmastra which plays very important role in this book series. This books gives so many good massages. I highly recommend this book series to all to read once.
So this is my view for this book series. Tell me about your thoughts in comments below.
