The book tells you all the good things about a lifestyle that you already know - eat good, sleep good, live good, stay active etc. The backdrop of the book is Okinawa Island from Japan where a lot of centegenerians live, that's why the book has a Japanese title. As a matter of fact, Ikigai means something that makes life worthwhile (passion)...

Perfect book to guide you into history of India<br />

As d writer hmslf is narrator, he fumbls a lot while narrartng. Bt smhow dat goes vry smuth wid d flow. Further, the narrator had the typical problem in pronunciation of Hindi words - Jain is pronouncd s Jaayan, awadh as aodh etc.

But as a whole, the book goes veey fast and doesnt bores you at all. it starts from the ancient history and comes to today in a very seamless and interesting dialogue. enjoyed reading it...

The book is well drafted and draws clear and elaboarate perpective of every character's innate personas. All characters are depicted as privileged humans (and not like Gods) having their own sets of good and bad ideologies. So nicely and eloquently written that u will connect with each person's story.

Sakshi narrated the book impressively but book is recorded at a very slow pwce, i heard d entire book at 1.75x and yet i was comfortable understanding each and every word and the emotion behind it.

the book gives your a first hand experience of how Indians live, think and decide on various aspects of life. the book revolves around people of different sections of society in early 19th century and how each of them think within the their specific societal framework. Muse listen, especially with commendable narration by Sameer Goswami...

very very beautifully narrated story of people of all classes living in a tea estate in Sri Lanka and how all their lives are intertwined. A must read for all those who want to peek into the immensely beautiful tea estates and people working in them. #Recommended

Sounded more like a comic book story than s thriller plot. Quite superficial narration and artificial unconnected music...

This book perfectly tells you how innocent people are changed into blood thirsty mobs, just by senseless talks of religious unity. That blind hysteria to kill others, just on the basis of ' felt' vengeance and not seen.

Must read to get a glimpse of how humans think as religious groups..

Engaging and brilliant!!
