    One thought on “The Eighth Guest and other Muzaffar Jang Mysteries (Muzaffar Jang, #2)”

    1. Surprisingly good read Liked it better than The Englishman s Cameo Maybe because the stories had a lighter feel to it and had a nice cadence to it Maybe the author is comfortable with short stories.There are 10 stories here, 10 mysteries So it does give the feel of an Akbar Birbal collection There are historical characters who do play some parts and she does mention them at the end in footnotes Really liked that There was a nod to My Name is Red and was the last one to Sherlock Holmes A Bohemia [...]

    2. She s tried very hard to create another Feluda Sherlock Holmes While some stories were interesting, she couldn t do justice to the era the stories are set in The book makes for a nice, short read in between two heavy reads.

    3. It is always a delight to read homespun stories, for me especially the ones that are set in Delhi The Eight Guest by Madhulika Liddle is the second book from the author that I read last week And I am in sheer love with Muzaffar Jang and his escapades A sharp mind with a devil lies in details attitude, Jang for me now is homegrown Sherlock Holmes.The Eighth Guest is a collection of 10 short stories, so twisted in nature that only Muzaffar Jang can solve the mystery lying in them The Eighth Guest [...]

    4. Now don t take me wrong, I felt incomplete at the end of the book I adore the writing and clearly Muzaffar is one of those rare characters whom you love to see again and again But the whole of short stories doesnt sit well with this book I hope Madhulika can delve into the character and bring out the best The book is cleverly written in terms of the mysteries involved and how well he saves the day or solves it I loved the wry humor in the book.Waiting for More to read on Muzaffar Jang mysteries [...]

    5. The plots were set at the time of Mughal Era The thought is excellent Description of the architectures,gardens, characters made me travel in my own imagination of Mughals The crime and the way it happened were nicely woven through words Issue lies in the resolution of the mystery Climax of each story was predictive It should not be ended how it was ended So at the end, the search for the truth takes an unsatisfactory turn.

    6. Read this immediately after the author s first book The Englishman s Cameo Not much to add about the writing style and setting both of which I like.Muzzafar Jung has matured as a detective in this book, and is self assured The setting is as nice as the first book The plots for the stories, while simple are varied I liked them enough to go for her third book.

    7. 3.5 but only because I m not a fan of short stories I really enjoy madhulika liddle s work Really good descriptions and so surprised she s not a historian herself Fully intend to pick up the rest of her series

    8. The sequel to the Englishman s cameo The writer has successfully accomplished the difficult task of having written historical crime fiction in the short story genre Perfect for when you want to read something quick, short and exciting

    9. A delightful collection of detective stories set in Mughal India, with the daily life of the period loving drawn.

    10. I am no connoisseur of mystery stories, but these are a ton of fun Enjoyable depictions of upper class life in Mughal Delhi.
