男女主角間的愛情寫得過於煽情... 一度以為誤看了言情小說.. 不過整體來說還是挺新鮮的... 窺視蒙兀兒王朝的政治與後宮.. 充滿金銀藏寶的奢華皇室生活... 還有一堆名字好長的大臣:P

充滿印度風情的一本小說,雖然以女性為出發觀點描寫印度社會,但不會太灰暗,其中女性所受到的不平等待遇,作者都輕描淡寫的帶過,反而凸顯了印度的另一種風貌,讓人有種窺探神秘國度的驚喜!! 不過女主角在本書中,有自己的想法,但感受不出來她為印度帶來的改革,聽說下一本書才會有比較詳細的描寫,因此下本書也許才看得出全貌吧!!!

Wonderful descriptive writing- full of vivid details. So many details about the surroundings, settings and the history of the times that the characters lack a bit of depth.... But I enjoyed the story and will read the sequel.
