A very well written book. The story is interesting.This novel belongs to historical fiction & i love reading it.Each & every page is beautifully written .The book is set in 8th century BC . Love, hatred and revenge...all elements are there.
Straight to the point narration and no unwanted or unnecessary descriptions made the book a delight to read. The plot moved on fairly smoothly.The author introduces certain twists.
Samarsiddha is really a thunderous debut by Sandeep Nayyar .
Samarsiddha is a unique piece of fiction in its own . Author has pen down his thoughts about the people who are either ignored or can say belong to backward classes . Nayyar had shown how few powerful people plays with the backward class majority . When such sought of nuisance cross a level , then people have to turn their hands for violence and arms .
Protagonist of this fiction is also a victim of such injustice . Book reveals how the evil society had let switching the lanes of protagonist .
MUST READ ! I would recommend this book for all the readers.
