"The Palace Of Illusion" is about the life of Panchaali who was the daughter of king Drupad and wife of five husbands Pandava brothers.
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni takes as back to the time of the Indian epic Mahabarat. As this novel is from Panchaali's prospective. Her whole life.
Her complicated friendship with Krishna, or her secret attraction to the mysterious man who is her husband 's most dangerous enemy. The situations and challenges she had faced after marriage.
Each chapter is so mesmerizing. The twist and turns, every little part are perfunctory narrated.
We have known the epic Mahabharat but this novel have taken it to the next level. There were many hidden untold persona that this book told us.
I really enjoyed reading this book and shall re-read it again. I look forward to read more books of Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. She had rendered this book to must read for all the book lovers. Worth giving it time !
