Blue God opens on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, where the Pandava warrior, Arjuna, suffers a crisis of courage. His charioteer, Krishna, expounds the eternal dharma for him. This exposition between two armies is the Bhagavad Gita, the Hindus Bible.

BLUE GOD cuts back to Krishnas birth, and back again to the battlefield, and so on, chapter by chapter, until both narratives flow together near the books end.

The juxtaposition was realistic, relatable, heartwarming, breaking, silencing most importantly realising.
I feel educated and entertained. However for the best part of this book, the alternating-between-two-tracks literary tool that Menon has employed is slightly tedious and I found myself looking forward only to the parts about The Blue God's life compared to the narrative of the Geeta which transpires on the threshold of the Kurukshetra war. The last chapter is where both converge and it is captivating. All in all, this book was an interesting read for me, as it will be for anyone who has a yen for I feel educated and entertained.
All in all, this book was an interesting read for me, as it will be for anyone who has a yen for mythology paired with a poor memory!

So many parts of the story were familiar, but I found I had forgotten some intersting little detail. Wikipedia was an invaluable resource that I frequented for more background on a certain character or certain event referred to in the book! Would love to read the far more lucid writer, Devdutt Pattanaik's take on the same topic! Krishna is an immense subject full of hundreds of characters, conflicts of soul and times, fantasy, fun, frolic, and lures of incredible deeds. It is hard to think that someone without some cursory knowledge about Krishna and his life will be able to fully follow the book.
Also the writing skills, though good, fail to capture the true spirit of Krishna. There seems to be more emphasis on how to dazzle the reader than to be immersed in the subject itself. Perhaps this is the chasm between a histo Krishna is an immense subject full of hundreds of characters, conflicts of soul and times, fantasy, fun, frolic, and lures of incredible deeds. Perhaps this is the chasm between a historical documentary and a devotional account. Regardless, I am at loss to think of what type of reader I could recommend this book to?
Perhaps only to someone looking for a mythological fantasy reading and did not really care about the subject of Krishna as much. Mar 22, Shivani Sheopory rated it it was amazing. Now this was an exciting book!
