Wow , what a ride. A powerful, balanced and thrilling voice of Draupadi. Not laced with the usual "Urban Feminism" and gives another unique perspective on the great story. The construction is so beautiful that itself is a reason to pick this one up. Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni uses absolutely brilliant technique to turn a story which I know by heart into a thriller for me. Can't praise enough
