Alex Rutherford does a great job bringing it to light with a fantastic rebelling. Clearly, given the absence of all information, there are some leaps of faith required and made by the author but none that deviates from seemingly the truth or an approximation thereof. As a curious student of the subject of Mughal dynasty I found this to be a fantastic read and highly recommend it.

Brillianr narrative style but questionable authenticity of content By Swapna Captivating narration - brought vivid images to life. Recreated history brilliantly. But having read some other stuff about the Mughal emperors, I felt the authors did tamper with some real events in the name of creative liberty.

That one deliberate change in how the relationship is portrayed made me question the authenticity of most projected in the book.

I read it as a work of fiction with brilliant narration to enjoy and not as a work of history to learn from. Atin Basu The writing style may be a little sophomoric but the subject matter is spellbinding. And the author does capture some of the grand sweep of the central Asian landscape along with the history.

I do not know how faithful he is to Baburnama. However, this is good historical fiction. See all 49 customer reviews
