The Sultan of Delhi, by Arnab Ray turned out to be my final read of 2017, and I was happy it did.
It is an incredible read, and I can now finally relate to being hooked to a book. This was my first thriller,of sorts and definitely not my last!
The tale of a frightened young boy from Lahore, working his way up to become one of the most feared in Delhi, so much as to be dubbed the Sultan of Delhi. Life on top isn’t as easy, and Arjun must battle, with the most important people in his life at stake.
The ingenious plot twists and the humour was what I loved the most. The characters were great as well. I loved Arjun the most, with his intellect and suaveness.
The ending, to me was disappointing. I was expecting an ending that would keep up with Arjun’s regality. I was wrong. The ending didn’t do justice to the title, to me at least.
It was a great read, overall!
I’d rate the book a 4/5!
