Tamil Historic Novels by Kalki

Recently, I started reading tamil novels after finishing my college. Wow, I have never seen anything like that. The description of war, love, hatred......... My god, I have never seen such beatiful descriptions. My first encounter was with kalki's sivagamiyin sabatham. I kind of liked it. I then took on Ponniyin Selvan and finished the entire book in six days. I have benn trying to get my hands on other books by kalki. I got them all from projectmadurai - a venture to get all the nationalised tamil books on the net. For everyone's notice, Kalki's books have been nationalised. So any publisher can publish it. I have now started on Alai Oosai. I believe the following books will enthrall you as well(provided you know tamil). I haven't read any of sandilyan's works. But from the discussion on forums and other places, I think that they too are equally good as Kalki's. I post the following links for anyone wishing to read Kalki's great works. I'm expecting sandilyan's kadal pura. I think I'll be getting the actual book next week. Once I get that I think I'll get a taste of his style as well.I think the following books will help.

Ponniyin Selvan:- 1a 1b 2a 2b 3a 3b 4a 4b 5a 5b 5c 5d

Sivagamiyin Sabatham:- part1 part2 part3 part4

Alai Oosai:- part1 part2 part3 part4

Parthiban Kanavu:- part1&2 Part3

Solaimalai Ilavarasi:- part1

Read these great books and enjoy them!!!!!
