Refreshing but not unique

It is a very good experience going through this audiobook. Listening to it is a very soothing and smooth feeling except for the gory violence depicted in the first few minutes. The listener is expected to evolve as the protagonist Parthiban evolves. One does evolve as the book flows but not in pace with Parthiban. Probably because Parthiban had a few hundred pages of the book to evolve while the listener has no such limitations. All in all a pleasant experience. But as an Indian one has read, heard and told such stories often. One time reading of this title? A definite yes!
