    This was absolutely glorious fun It s a weird but entirely assured blend a high fantasy quest Dark Lord epic based in Indian rather than Euro Scand myth and landscape, which is also absolutely rammed with gags the cheaper the better , terrible puns, and affectionate mockery of fantasy tropes This is the sort of thing that s very easy to do badly What lifts this book way above is that the characters are terrifically engaging, the plot is genuinely compelling and twisty, the silliness of the quest

    It took me a little while to get into this book because it starts out slow, and I m not used to Hindu critter names It wasn t too long that I was completely absorbed into the book I have to admit, I really liked Basu s writing style It was fun, hilarious, quirky, and epic As I read through all of the mini adventures the characters went on, I was amazed and drawn in While much of the time the quests weren t detailed, it was much easier to read that way Seriously, I m not a huge fan of books when you hav

    I like fantasy fiction unlike the vast majority of people who think that it s a disreputable form of literature and consider it only for kids I liked the book It brims over with allusions Ramayana, Mahabharatha, Greek mythology, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, comic books, Arabian Nights etc etc The storyline, of course, is fantasy staple diet There is a Quest, and a Quest needs a Hero, who must go forth with a band of loyal warriors and have many adventures, and Save the World But Simoqin Prophecies offers

    Imagine this A desert that s called Al Ugobi.A seagull whose name is Irik Seagull.A group of spell casters calling themselves Hex Men Now none of the above are integral to this story but why I mentioned them here first is probably because this inventive play on words is my major take away from this book Samit Basu is just superb at these things There are interesting references throughout the book and I m terribly tempted to list them all out for you but that would take out most of the fun So am I saying that the ac

    Finally, an Indian author who writes science fiction fantasy And what a novel With references from various books, ranging from Indian epics like the Ramayan and the Mahabharata to fantasy books like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Eragon to Greek mythology this book has it all.The writing is fluid, easy to read and laced with humor The plot has many central characters, many threads and ever so many leads, and each one is better than the last Generally speaking, it follows the traditional first book in a YA fantasy seri

    Think of a story, Timas It can be anything you like Don t think too much, now Protagonists can be regular too Guy and female best friend Perfect, Timas Let s put in a competing alpha male, yes And keep it in an Indian mythological setting how novel While you re at it, Timas, throw in a lot of references to appear clever Now start writing, Timas your name isn t Timas, is it Keep the beginning intriguing How A rambling confused Creator who disappears for the rest of the time Sounds good to me Jump to the end now, Timas What about t

    I had given up on contemporary Indian authors, but Samit Basu gives me hope Surprisingly well written, the book is a parody of your everyday fantasy With a Dark Lord who s not so dark, a Robin Hood doubling as Lord Rama and princes falling in love with Rakshases, while damsels give knights a run for their money, this book hilariously kills all the stereotypes that your typical Hero story propounds while weaving a very interesting tale of an oncoming war between the forces of Good and Evil or Good and Good, or Evil and Evil, or just two

    I had heard some vague stuff about Samit Basu s Gameworld Trilogy a long time ago Unfortunately, it got pushed to the deep recesses of my mind until one day, as Fate would have it, I chanced upon a copy of The Simoqin Prophecies Then I thought, Ah, what the heck Secretly I was hoping that the book would restore my hope for the future of modern Indian fantasy fiction.Guess what It did.I am a fan of Basu s style of writing His voice is refreshing, quirky, hilarious and at times will leave you snorting and groaning with laughter I thought I should make

    GoosebumpsI have been a fantasy fiction junkie for the better part of a decade now but this style of writing is totally new to me and extremely refreshing Some die hard fantasy lovers have argued that the books are comedy and so does not get a place in the Great and Exalted Hall of Epic Fantasies however, I would say that the author has managed to walk this tight rope marvelously well The comedy does not hinder the story, instead it enriches it.The plot of the book is about the rise of the hero view spoiler and the Dark Lord hide spoiler
