    4.5 I d felt that the first few chapters were extremely dragging I almost lost hope And then came the rescue, the way amarar kalki described Sri Lanka has to be my most favorite thing in this book I ended up googling most of the places like thampallai, sigiriya, Anuradhapura and was surprised to see the forts, paintings and Buddha statues described in the book are still there There were lots of plot twists and brilliant story line going on, I ended up enjoying the rest of the book.
