The Palace of Illusions

The Palace of Illusions - Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni I don't know why I wasted my time reading this book which was neither true nor was it entertaining. This was more like a fan fiction of Draupadi and Karna and nothing else. No idea what the author wanted to make us feel here by telling Mahabharata from Draupadi's point of view. Was she trying to portray Draupadi as a 21st century feminist? Or how foolish she was every time she ended up contradicting her own decision or action? Either ways it did not make much difference to me as I stopped caring for this character the moment I came to know Draupadi was portrayed wrongly in this book 'IMO'.
