Review: The Emperor of All Maladies

The Emperor of All Maladies The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Some books are seminal and important milestones in the history as they bring something new and revolutionary to the world. This is one such books which is meticulously researched and bring forth something new this is one such book. And I wanted to read this book so much for so many years but somehow I kept on leaving it back or couldn't read further but this time I decided to start it and after some time where it again lay neglected I corrected my way and finally finished this masterpiece. It is a non-fiction book but reads better than many thrillers.

This book charts the history of Cancer thankfully this malady hasn't touched my family (Touchwood) but I have known people suffering from it and lost friends to it so I know how terrifying this can be. The book is wonderful because of the heart of the story and how wonderfully it travels from one era to other and charting the work done in identifying this terrible disease and different work done to fight it and all the work that has been done to ensure that we find the solution for it and the reality of the matter too. And it's no surprise that this won the Pulitzer prize when this book was released. This deserves all the awards and praise and gets and then some more. i would soon look to start and finish the next book 'Gene' by the same author but I need to finish the streamlining of my currently reading list and work towards finishing the books which are pending for a long time due to this reason or that but it shall be done.

If you have wondered whether to read this book wonder no more and get it and read it and always remember to just Keep on Reading .
