    32 months, 1800 rupees, 3 translators, pdf Kindle physical books and a lot of frustration that was reading the complete Ponniyin Selvan in English I liked the plot description of Fresh Floods Part 1 onand bought it The book is a historical adventure, set in Tamil Nadu of 11th century, with interesting characters and well thought out twists and events But, this final volume was too long.I loved Fresh Floods Part 1 and was disappointed to know that the remaining 4 parts were 32 months, 1800 rupees, 3 translators, pdf Kindle physical books and a lot of frustration that was reading the complete Ponniyin Selvan in English I liked the plot description of Fresh Floods Part 1 onand bought it The book is a historical adventure, set in Tamil Nadu of 11th century, with interesting characters and well thought out twists and events But, this final volume was too long.I loved Fresh Floods Part 1 and was disappointed to know that the remaining 4 parts were not available in English on Kindle On a lot of searching, came across a free PDF version of Part 2 online by a different translator It was a pain to read it on Kindle but managed But, the remaining 3 parts were not available as English ebooks.The physical books for Parts 3 4 5 were unavailable and were acquired over time vianotifications of their availability And the final twist, Part 5 has 2 volumes, and the second volume was nowhere to be found Infact on ordering, recd another copy of Volume 1 a year or so ago.Finally, someone thankfully released an All Volumes ebook in English, that hangs on mobile, has a few spelling mistakes, but is readable on Kindle and PC So, to read the 6th and last volume, I bought all 6 for Rs.600 Was it worth it Maybe not as the continuity and reading pleasure was ruined Had to read Volume 1 again, and a lot of time was spent looking up events characters in previous volumes Wish, the all volumes ebook was available earlier

    My mom is an avid reader and upon the insistence of her older brother, she read Ponniyin Selvan She always raved about how interesting and engrossing this book is and this in turn piqued my interest Since I grew up away from Tamil Nadu, my ability to read Tamil is limited My search for a translated version of Ponniyin Selvan started over seven years ago, and it was quite the journey all unto itself And I must say that it was well worth it Kalki s story telling is so compelling because of his My mom is an avid reader and upon the insistence of her older brother, she read Ponniyin Selvan She always raved about how interesting and engrossing this book is and this in turn piqued my interest Since I grew up away from Tamil Nadu, my ability to read Tamil is limited My search for a translated version of Ponniyin Selvan started over seven years ago, and it was quite the journey all unto itself And I must say that it was well worth it Kalki s story telling is so compelling because of his picturesque descriptions and his lively characters Some of the female characters are among the most fascinating He blends poignancy and levity in such a satisfying way He has also managed to capture the religious fervour of that time, and weave together actual history and fiction so deftly There are some inconsistencies, but overall this was definitely worth the time and effort
