as much attention as that of the North An excellent book on the ancientistory of India which remains readable and insightful throughoutGreat detail Ella's First Exam: A Medical Exam Fiction (Ella's Exams Book 1) has been put into theistory of the northern and central regions of India Only the last two chapters are dedicated to the southern region so I ope future editions providing they come into existence expand these into I am generally very interested in istory and in the politically charged atmosphere of the country right now India I thought it would be nice to go back and read a bit about the country s past I wasn t dissapointed the most interesting aspect of this book for me were the various sources from where I could read about ancient India It mentions several books for detailed study of the country s past It is in general a very well researched book The mention of certain concepts from the countries intellectual and cultural past like Dhvani Elora Paintings Number System Musical Notes among others Principios de economía política had me in awe Even in a textbook like format there is a certainumour at least to me in the commentaries of the author which Aunt Jane's Nieces had me giggling at least a dozen times if not Being an Indian and imagining certain things personally and clearly made this a delightful read The book talks about numerable oft not so popular facets of Indianistory the ones usually not taught in school Some fasinating things I learned were1 the places Fa ien visited Peshawar Kanauj Kashi Kapilavastu Kusinagar Vaishali Pataliputra and

stages of ancient India starting from prehistoric times till 1200 AD The author seems to We'll Make It Through have done rather good research and uotes numerous references and makes it clear at the very start thate The Silent Earth: The Complete Trilogy has borrowedeavily from various sources The language of the text is lucid and engrossing which is to say a lot since I personally was under an impression that owing to paucity of resources from this particular time period this book might be a drag I can t say I am disappointedThe author picks up various time periods and touches up various areas of that particular period such as political economic social religious etc Although the author as tried to present various viewpoints and arguments over various topics and is especially critical of nationalist viewpoints and arguments the book overall still lacks it at most places My opinion is that since this book was first published in 2007 it needs to be updated and perhaps add a few valid new arguments nationalist views notwithstandingThe book itself is a good source of knowledge of this period but after reading it I can t let go of the feeling of it being incomplete The book is brief perhaps too brief Or maybe I am not very used to istory books being that briefMake no mistakes the book was still a very good read and is very suitable if you want to move chronologically uickly It s a good book if you plan to finish one pass of reading Indian The Age of Apollyon history in let s say one month I myself finished it without anyassle in less than 10 days with less than 40 mins of
