The Speaking Stone - Book Review

The Speaking Stone 

Book Review

 Is it possible for a tone to talk ?

🍁This book is a fictional historical thriller by @ratnadipacharya

🍁The story starts when the protagonist, Saikat buys a vertical stone from a road side vendor. It has images of Shiva Parvati, Ganesha, a beautiful lady and some lines written in sanskrit. The half stone creates a lot of questions in Saikat 's mind and he starts his journey from Mumbai to Tripura in order to find the other half of the stone. On the way to Tripura he meets Shuvashini who is a PhD student and is on her way to Tripura for research.

🍁Do you think Saikat will be able to unfold the mystery of the stone? Does it really speak? What does it signify? Read the book to know what happens.

🍁Review :

🍁I like history and am a great fan of thriller books. The author has beautifully written the story about two different eras - early 1900s and 2016-17. The story is written so well that you can easily imagine the scenes as your read. The way the it unfolds is really superb. Each page has a new twist and once you start reading it, u will definitely not put the book down until you finish reading it.

🍁Each and every character, whether it is from the 1900s or 2016-17, has been described beautifully.

🍁The language is lucid and crisp. The author has done a detailed study to write such a wonderful book. Few illustrations inside the book add to the charm of reading.

🍁The cover page of the book is designed well and goes well with the story. .

🍁Thank you Ratandip Acaharya for the sending the signed copy of the book. Looking forward to reading the next part. .
