The Krishna Key – Book Review

Firstly I’d love to thank BlogAdda for giving me this book absolutely free of cost, just to review it here. So, thank you.

Now, about the book; The Krishna Key is the third book of Ashwin Sanghi, the author of the bestselling “Rozabal Line” and the award winning “Chanakya’s Chant”. Even though the author gives a fair disclaimer pertaining to the historical places, names and everything else being a figment of his imagination, it is pretty hard to believe that, once you read the book. It is filled with intricate details about everything, to an extent that one would actually believe all of the “facts” (in the book) to be true.

This book is the story of a serial killer, who has a misplaced sense of being the tenth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. A history professor, along with his favourite pupil, has to uncover the secrets that the serial killer and his mentor seek. Many characters come and go, in this absolute page turner of an thriller, but Ashwin Sanghi has really managed to keep the readers hooked on to the story even as he balances the various characters effortlessly. Even though the title says The Krishna Key, the story revolves around nuclear reactors, radioactive substances, Shiva-lingams,  historical events, the advent of various religions, races and castes and with unbelievable “facts” that are made believable through the author’s keen usage of words and sense of language.

One of the scariest movies I’ve seen. Well I started the movie, expecting so much, because I’ve watched and read “The Shining” by Stephen King himself. So I, kind of,  knew the level of fear and horror the movie was going to instill in me.

Me and my friend, both have been wanting to see this movie ever since we first heard so much fuss about it on FRIENDS. And that is exactly how I came to watch this movie.

****Spoiler Alert****
