The Boy from Pataliputra review:

The Boy from Pataliputra has given a perfect start to the trilogy. The story travels with a fictional character with a historical backdrop. I loved the way Rahul Mitra has portrayed the protagonist. The novel is divided into three parts. The first part describes Aditya’s life in Pataliputra. As a carefree man Aditya might seem a little unfit for a protagonist. But, the way the character evolves is the strength of the book.

Though it is a historical fiction the characters in Takshashila and the university itself resembles the present day college life. It is a different approach towards a historical fiction which impressed me a lot. The battle towards the end of the novel is the great add to the finish. The battle actually hypes the expectation for the second book.

Aditya’s inner struggles, his love life, his guru’s advises are the positives that lifts the story. The lucid language helps in the course of reading, especially the battle scenes can reverberate in your ears (The detailing speaks).

Apart from a few glitches in the characterization The Boy from Pataliputra is a winner in many ways. Don’t miss if you love historical fictions. The novel stands as one of the bests in the historical fictions that deal with Alexander’s invasion in India.
