Light and Fire: Sex Lives of Modern Dynasties by Aaj ka Manto is a non-fiction book on the relationships of real life people and the revealing of their secret sexual lives. This book would appeal most to an audience of adults who do not mind mature content, sexual situations, and explicit language. This book reveals the secret lives of many people such as: Benazir Bhutto, Hillary Clinton, Yoko Ono, Indira Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Lord Mountbatten, and the royal families of many different countries. The book gives explicit details of the different sexual encounters that these people have had over their lives; everything from around the world sexual adventures to threesomes and more!
Light and Fire: Sex Lives of Modern Dynasties by Aaj ka Manto was a well written book that read very much like a fiction novel due to the way the author weaves such interesting stories together. I have to say I was rather surprised by some of the things that people get up to in their spare time. I found it interesting that the stories were all put together from the research conducted by a team of investigative reporters and former intelligence field agents. The idea of sex parties where couples swap partners was something that I had never heard of before and I was rather surprised that there were so many people interested in these types of activities. The author did a wonderful job in explaining all of the different practices and acts in a way that made sense. Overall, this was a book that really opened my eyes to the sorts of things that people do for enjoyment outside of their normal everyday lives.
