India Was One by An Indian is an extremely intriguing and highly entertaining novel. Readers will be fascinated by the amount of culture, conflict and suspense. An Indian knew exactly what to bring to his readers when writing this fictional piece. Readers will get a deep insider’s view, to India and its people. I absolutely loved the passion the writer put into this remarkable story. After studying about culture, society, and a tiny bit of India and its people…I was hooked from page one and could not stop reading. A modern India that undergoes a conflict that will set the course for two individuals…a divided country brings up so many what ifs and an edge of your seat wait that will leave readers talking about this book for ages to come.
This was the second book that I have read by An Indian. He work is detailed, well-written, and a must read. Fiction at its greatest. Imagine traveling to a foreign country under trying times…The danger….and difficult times ahead are something readers will need to read to discover for themselves. The characters were realistic and their situation was believable. I highly recommend India Was One to readers everywhere.
