    this book sets out to be a masala Bollywood thriller but is anywhere close to it.there are many vernacular references especially the choicest of hindi expletives,which although relative to the storydo not have a good effect on the reader. there is communalisation of the Muslim community as if all the Muslims in India are thoroughbred terrorists which is highly condemnable.the irony is that the main antagonist is a "so called" HINDU DON and still Muslims are portrayed as villains. the NETFLIX serie this book sets out to be a masala Bollywood thriller but is anywhere close to it.there are many vernacular references especially the choicest of hindi expletives,which although relative to the storydo not have a good effect on the reader. there is communalisation of the Muslim community as if all the Muslims in India are thoroughbred terrorists which is highly condemnable.the irony is that the main antagonist is a "so called" HINDU DON and still Muslims are portrayed as villains. the NETFLIX series must be much better than this novel.i m looking forward to seeing it after completing part 2 of this book which i hope would be better than the first part.

    3.5/5 I had been meaning to read 'Sacred Games' for a long time because I am a complete sucker for books (fiction and non-fiction) about the Underworld. However, the size of the book intimidated me and I never got around to reading it earlier. When the first season of the series released last month, I binged it in a day and absolutely loved it! The first season also left me with a lot of unanswered questions that I didn't have the patience to wait to be answered in the next season, whose release 3.5/5 I had been meaning to read 'Sacred Games' for a long time because I am a complete sucker for books (fiction and non-fiction) about the Underworld. However, the size of the book intimidated me and I never got around to reading it earlier. When the first season of the series released last month, I binged it in a day and absolutely loved it! The first season also left me with a lot of unanswered questions that I didn't have the patience to wait to be answered in the next season, whose release date is still very far away. So taking advantage of my renewed interest in the story and Penguin India's smart initiative to divide the book into two parts, I bought the book(s) and plunged into it immediately. The first page of the book is exactly like the first scene of the series, but after that series does deviate a little from the book. Obviously, the series is so good because the source material is good as well. The character of Ganesh Gaitonde, both in the book and series, is interesting and well-explored. The chapters about Gaitonde are the best part of this book so far. There is no doubt he is a bad man, you don't have to root for him, but his story still has the best arc. Sartaj, who was a morally straight character in the series, has (thankfully) more layers in the book. He ain't a saint, but he is still a competent police officer, though often more confused than he should be. Atleast the book Parulkar likes him and looks out for him! Other characters like Katekar, Kamble, Mary Macerenas (Jojo's sister who isn't a part of the series yet), Chota Badriya get ample amount of attention too. Now coming to what I didn't like about the book. When a story runs for 900 pages, you wonder if so many pages are really needed to tell this particular story. 'Sacred Games' reads like a long TV series/drama. There are lot of side stories that may or may not be relevant in the second part of the book. The 400+ pages that I have read so far could have been condensed to around 350 pages. Detailed backstories of many side characters (like Sartaj's mother's Partition story or Anjali Mathur's boss' intelligence mission in the Northeast), though well-written, didn't have to be so long. I would love to see that in a TV show, but not in a book. Moreover, the use of too much vernacular language also felt a little off. It, again, felt too much like a Hindi TV series or an Anurag Kashyap movie (so its apt that Anurag Kashyap decided to make the series. This book was destined to be adapted by him). Overall, I really enjoyed reading the first part of 'Sacred Games'. It's entertaining if you think of it as a dramatic TV series.

    One of the rare occasions when I found the adaptation (Netflix series) better than the original book. The great performances of the characters in the series coupled with the out of the world dialogues written by Varun Grover gave the series a memorable impact, which didn't really materialise in the book. This was the first part and my feelings might change after finishing the second book, but still as of now, I found this a little too wordy and editing could have been stringent.

The two 'inset' chapters were the worst and if their relevance is not made clear in the next part, it would be a huge let down.

    A great start as part one but there is a lot of difference you will see between the TV series and the book. A fine and a clear details about each and every character. Even if you have watched the TV series, you can still read this book.

    So this is Part One, and I will reserve judgement until I've finished Part Two. So this is Part One, and I will reserve judgement until I've finished Part Two.

    Novel is great, but it's very different from the series. Not that it's bad, though. Novel is great, but it's very different from the series. Not that it's bad, though.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The book is actually good. The thing that used to awaken my mind while reading this was anything related to Gaitonde's case. The Inset chapters actually bored me because i felt that that had no connection with the inline stories, may be they are to be the references for part 2. Was actually depressed when Katekar died. Hahah Spoiler!!! The book is actually good. The thing that used to awaken my mind while reading this was anything related to Gaitonde's case.
