wonderful narration and simple facts of life presented very well. some take away each time you listen to it (which means one will want to listen to it multiple times). A very simple and beautiful narrative. Go for it.

A brilliant but a simple narration

Loved it. Narration and storyline is so simple that you end up identifying yourself with it. Through the narration of various episodes in lives of cadets, you end up remembering your own life and times you spent with your friends. Brings a gentle smile while you listen. No too many highs or lows, simply flows through. A well modulated voice too. Like one of those Hrishikesh Mukherjee movies.... simple but absolute must watch. Just a small irritant though. At times some dialogues flow in Hindi as it suits the story. however, immediately after, it's translated in English and repeated. not necessary and disturbs the flow. But a way too small irritation to be bothered about. A must listen.

Disappointed

Made famous by Dan Brown, many indian novel have tried the path of historical facts based thriller. however, Vault Of Vishnu is a very poor attempt at it. the story runs in parallel to historical times and present times but fails to connect completely. The historical times thread could have been dropped completely. The 'facts' are thrown just to crowd the story but creates no impact or excitement and many of them has no connect at all. The story also jumps from episodes to episodes and seems very jerky. To top it all, the end is too filmy as a villain comes into picture as if it's mandatory to have one. A seemingly side character suddenly appears riding a high end byke, throwing granades, killing people and vanishing even before granade detonates.... why? A forcefully fitted characters and episodes....

brilliant

absolutely wonderful. the characterization is so well done and and it simply draws the character in front of your eyes. story progresses as if you are at those places at every stage and witnessing the story. awesome oration also. voice modulation changes so effectively for each person. very soon you will know whose dialogue is it just by hearing it.

Standard story, repeat framework, narrated well

This story from Dan Brown is based on his tried and tested framework. however, it's getting stale now. while the story does hold some bit of thrill, very long and unnecessary narrations slows it down and kills it. At times, the story comes to a halt, right when prev chapter ends with high suspense and then story becomes a documentary for a while. such paragraph, I feel, are good and informative but I'll placed. However, Paul's narration is really fantastic. his voice modulation for diff characters is simply superb.
