It is an interesting read. Especially the parts where the author had a close encounters with the subject. The interviews described seems honest and candid.
I would have liked it better if some parts were not repeated more than once. The book somehow did not leave much of remembrance with me. It is more like a princess in distress feeling that i gathered from the book. Other than some of its apparent flaws, it does deliver on a prespective on Pakistani Politics and its evolvement in the times of It is an interesting read.

It is hardly surprising that a book written on the slain Pakistani leader, Benazir Bhutto, by an Indian author has created controversy in Pakistan. Advani was perhaps still wiping his tears that he had shed at a public function the other day when he heard about the protestations in Pakistan and promptly offered his apologies to the Bhutto family and her party. The delayed cry against the book may well be the reaction against US comments. Unless he had been in deep slumber days prior to the function where he released the book Advani said to be fond of reading books, though mostly fiction could not have been totally oblivious of the so-called controversial parts of the book. Advani will have to be an incredible political ignoramus if he was not aware of the kind of controversies that late Bhutto had courted during her two stints as prime minister of Pakistan. Stories of her personal lifestyle have always abounded.
