    Siva triology follows the bell curve. 1st part taking your interest up the hill, while 2nd part keeps the interest at its maximum & 3rd part takes you down the hill....

    Had these 3 been put together in release, probably it would have been even better. Still few chapters are good and bring out nice message(s).

    Overall, if one has read earlier two, then go for the last as well to stiate curiosity.
    yeah thats what...I have read the first two so will buy the third one as well...

      I recently read "When Bad Things Happen to Good people" by Harold S. Kushner.

      Amazon.com: When Bad Things Happen to Good People (9781400034727): Harold S. Kushner: Books

      It is not exactly a novel but it is certainly among the best books I have ever read and very few that I have read twice from cover to cover.

        It definitely gives different perspective and personally speaking, I liked it very much. Though 3rd part could have been equally interesting had it been around 400 pages instead of 550 pages.

        But anyway, after a long time I read something interesting and thought provoking....

          Few others I would recommend:
          1. Is Paris Burning?
          2. Oh Jerusalam

            Just Started with Myth = Mithya by Devidutt Patnaik. Its a book on Hindu Mythology... interesting so far.

            Read only if you have interest in Hindu Mythology...its not a fictional thriller...

              Parti Parikatha

              All time best is "Parti Parikatha" by Phanishwarnath Renu..i dont know how many times i have read it...every time it unfolds some unseen dimension of human being....
              I havent read it since last year but still I remember the characters, their way of talking..

                Gives a different perspective about Hindy Mythology and fundas.

                Do update once you have finished this book...

                  Finished reading Mithya...it is strictly for those who have interest in Hindu mythology...

                  Good points:

                  1. Different perspective on Hindu Mythology
                  2. Answers lot of 'why we do this' type questions

                  Negatives:
                  1. It is not a fiction book, so uninteresting at times...
                  2. The content at times seems imagination of author, the logic he gives is not so convincing at a few places.

                  Still, a great attempt by the author...Devidutt Patnaik's another book 'Jaya' is a masterpiece...

                      Must read books I read so far:

                      Outlier: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell
                      The Fakir by Ruzbeh N. Bharucha (I didn't like the second one (the journey continues))
                      The Monk Who Sold his Ferrari by Robin S Sharma

                      I hope you will enjoy them, plz do share your view if you read any or all above.
