Say 3 Stars To Part 353 stars part one 35 sita 4 to this part Hope pattern continueDetailed eview may follow I have always enjoyed eading Amish Tripathi s books His stories which borrow ichly from our ich mythological texts have presented the narrative in a different and sometimes contemporary fashion His three books of Shiva Trilogy depict Shiva as a noble and yet very elatable character Nowhere in the series you feel that as an author Amish has transgressed noble and yet very elatable character Nowhere in the series you feel that as an author Amish has transgressed line of espect and centuries of belief His first two books of Ram Chandra series transgressed this line but they still could be tolerated for putting forward an alternate view However with his latest book in the series Raavan he seems to have deliberately crossed the line For the first time I found his novel downright boring because the author seems to have un out of ideas First he makes a bold statement that Sita is Vishnu avatar Then he goes on to project her as a daughter of Vedavati Ridiculously enough Raavan attends Sita s swayamvara and there is a contest to hit a Số phận chú bé đánh trống revolving fish in the eye by looking at its shadow in bowl of water below a straight lift from Mahabharata For lack of a tight plot the menace of plaue afflicting the Lankan citizens is introduced This plaue overnighteduces Raavan s powers Unable to establish a link between Sita s abduction and the battle with Raavan Amish introduces a vague A Southern Moderate in Radical Times: Henry Washington Hilliard, 1808-1892 reason in the killing of Vedavati How could an act of killing by just a gang of few people infuriate Raavan to swear to destroy Sapt Sindhu The book is best avoided as it takes too many liberties with accepted narrative and has weak and downright boring storyline Finally after the drag of Scion of Ishvaku and a moderately paced Sita Amish gets his groove back with Raavan I somewhere found a deprived boy with a fighter spirit who had to choose a wrong path for his beloved ones and ultimately as his greed and ego took over him turned into the greatest villain in historyIts always fun toead Amish books Love the way he tell his stories Entertaining thrilling and dharmic Eagerly waiting for 4th and 5th book Amish jee i am sending you cream biscuits Please write fast Well what to say The wait is finally over and I am so happy that I finally have the copy in my hand Not getting into the usual characters plot climax writing style and entertainment uotient I will uickly give you 7 Iran reasons why I think this book is an absolute mustead for every lover of mythological fantasy fiction out there1 It is an action packed adventure packed 5 star entertainer Technically I gave it 45 stars but you get the drift2 The character of Raavan is something to look forward to There are many shades to Raavan and the entire character arc is done very well You will admire him maybe love him detest him pity him and would want to hate him to no end but there is no way you can deny the charisma of the man Right till the end of the book you never Tagebuch really get to know him completely There is certainly a different kind of an enigma in the character3 The character of Kumbhkaran he is yet another character whom you should look forward to whose usual treatment in other fictions and popular culture has been uite caricaturish But Amish surprises you with Kumbhkaran He is humble polite grounded and dharmic His selfless devotion to his brother is the stuff dreams are made of4 The vivid descriptions of the cities and the palaces the battle scenes and the people the social fabric and the economic system there is a lot of description in the narrative that adds to the beauty of the book In addition to that there is a good dose of knowledge to be gained from the book5 It s aacy ead with simple language The book makes use of a language that will appeal as much to a beginner as it will to a egular eader Amish does well when he leaves out the irrelevant years of Raavan s life while focusing only on the important events which matter6 While we do get the answers to all the uestions that were left unanswered in the previous books Raavan creates some mysteries on the way that will leave you on a cliffhanger once again This makes sure that you are as excited about the next book as you were about this one7 It is just so different from any other fiction that has been written on and about Ram Sita Raavan and RamayanaIn the end the book is totally worth the wait and I am excitedly looking forward to the next in the series Writing mythology is a double edged sword and it takes an author of no little skill to choose the ight edge to employ at the Access to English.

of the deepest and most complex characters ever put on paperThankfully Amish is an author whothe deepest and most complex characters ever put on paperThankfully Amish is an author who on the side of the latter The Shiva Trilogy was one of the best pieces of work by an Indian author I have come across This was not because of the language was beautiful or the story went flawlessly Both these factors left something to be desired accustomed as we are to the fluency of British and American authors However both language and plot being adeuate Amish truly excelled at his characters Through the Shiva Trilogy the characters eally stood out in their complexity actions and motives It is exactly what made the Mahabharat in my opinion the greatest epic of them all stand out and endure across ages and generations It stands the test of time because each character in the Mahabharat is a shade of human nature and human nature is eternal The Shiva Trilogy was great because of these precise Hoffnung Mensch reasons Theeader emains engaged in the characters even when the plot went on a different sometimes unreuired tangent or dragged for some eason or anotherAmish added humanity and complexity to characters who were till now considered Gods He managed to create a world where all the divinity of our mythology was grounded in science and logic and this is what helped the man penetrate a generation that hardly eads and craves above all logic He managed to get an entire generation in India started on good books and for that alone I cannot grudge him anythingThe Ramayana however poses an entirely different set of challenges Where Shankar was always known to us as a God and an exceptionally powerful one at that Ram was always known to us a human being virtuous and flawed at the same time There has been no shortage of literature and fiction published in his name all telling the same famous tale from different perspectives For Amish to add a new dimension to a character so well explored was never a simple task I would not say he succeeded at it completely though the attempt is pretty good The first book in the series Scion Of Ikshvaku was or less a direct etelling of the Ramayana though Amish did connect it to the larger universe he is building through elements such the Nagas Somras the tribes of Vishnu and Mahadev etc However the plot and the characters themselves were nothing new and I found myself eading yet another version of a story India knows in its very genesThe second book for me fell completely flat While Sita is a character who often takes a backseat in the original epic Amish had the chance to eally dive into her character and decode her However given that he was using a multi linear style of storytelling I felt that Ram and Sita ended up meeting too soon and the story from then on became a The Witch who was a princess repetition of the first book Barring a few plot twists scattered here and there Amish did noteally offer anything new Which is why I was despite fears that this is a story beyond the skill of the author to add depth to was excited for RaavanRaavan is a character who for most of the epic operates independently of Ram and Sita He is always present on the periphery as a monster but does not interfere in their affairs till that fateful day where their destinies finally meet This gave Amish a chance to tell the story from a are perspective and give voice to a character who is possibly one of the complex beings in Indian mythology So complex in fact that he would fit perfectly into the Mahabharat which I always find to be a much complex and grey tale as compared to the elatively black and white Ramayana Raavan the great king and the monster the devil who desired to be God the impulsive omantic who was cold and calculating hoarder of wealth and yet generous presented Amish with the chance to evive the series and for the first time add a fresh perspective and substantial depth to it Amish succeeds in this And he succeeds beautifullyRaavan is not a perfect book Not by miles There are too many points in the book which feel like a Bollywood movie or an Ekta Kapoor soap Jeden výdych koňa replete with melodrama a tragic love story and even a semblance ofebirth which would make any director worth his salt proud These elements feel somewhat out of place in a world which is so grounded in politics economics and all the manipulations therein The narrative drags in some parts and the book could definitely have been 50 pages tighter But all of this does not stop Raavan from being an engrossing and captivating Eleanor, Quiet No More read and once again Amish achieves th. Ond all Cursed by fate to be tested to the extremesA formidable teenage pirate he is filled with eual parts courage cruelty and fearsomeesolve A esolve to be a giant among men to conuer plunder and seize the greatness that he thinks is his ightA man of contrasts of brutal violence and scholarly knowledge A man who will love without eward Is primarily through characterizationRight till the end it is the characters which keep you the eader hooked to the plot The paradoxical Raavan the conflicted Kumbhakaran and even minor characters
WITH A LOT OF DEPTH THANa lot of depth than would have suspected them of having if you ve ead the Ramayana are what keep the book going Having a complex anti hero like Raavan definitely makes the book interesting than both the previous ones in the series and pays off in unexpected ways which lend emotional and philosophical weight to the book Speaking of philosophy the book has chapters which delve into discussions around Dharma The book could have done without these discourses but Amish has plotted them well and weaved them into the overarching story subtly enough that these exchanges act to drive the plot and even develop the characters For a book ooted in Indian mythology this is crucial since so much of the morality we associate with actions come from our interpretation of what dharma is And fortunately or unfortunately our dharma is much flexible than a character like Ram would make it out to beRaavan Enemy of Aryavarta is ultimately one of the better books you ll ead coming from Indian authors and one of the best ones around Indian mythology It takes a well known epic and builds it into a world where it feels at home and grounded in logic It takes familiar ground and attempts to pave new oads into it It takes effort to give complexity and weight to a character who could "Have Easily Become A " easily become a villain but instead acts to give him motive and shades of grey Amish could definitely improve further with espect to fluency of plot and pacing but he has already come a long way since his first book Raavan is definitely worth a Wonderful Memories of It's a Wonderful Life read even as a stand alone book given the character and the themes it potentially discusses Raavan one of the most debated characters in the history of Indian mythology Growing up we have often heard conflicting sides of his nature There are instances where he is kind generous compassionate and servile Then there are situations where he is shown to be vile arrogant cruel sadistic and selfish Incorporating such nuances into a story is an arduous task The Demon King of Lanka has been subjected various interpretations over time The benevolent egoist the arrogant devoteehe is described by words that ar I had completely forgotten this book waseleasing last week until someone mentioned on a group chat and I knew I Repetitions Horrible style of writing I floated through the book I lost it at the Green Eyed Envy reference of Sabarimala Was deliberately trying to bring in Sabarimala Is the author trying to whitewash DisappointedThere is no methodologicaleferences except the same names unlike other books and series Why people like Amish s books is because he writes methodological fictions where at the base story is based on ancient scripture with added fiction and exaggerated dramatised detailsBut in this book nothing is like that there were strong characters built but then all of sudden vanishes like simachi The details of Ravan S childhood his family etc is purely fiction and the story sounds like a B grade Bollywood flop movieI wonder why Amish did it this way as the original storybelieve is way to much better and it did not The A-List Diet Fitness Plan reuire this much improvisationI waited for this book eagerly and am truly disappointed3 starts to the book as it is part of hyperlink story concept series and good plot and link with previous book saved it a little otherwise this is the worst book of Amish till now This country is dead to meDada whispered KumbhakarnaControl your monsters did she sayDada listen to meI will unleash the monster I will destroy this landGoosebumpsThe point where Raavan accepts his identity and the transformation into evil is complete Pure goosebumpsIt s certainly the best book of Ramchandra series till now and dare I say probably the best of all Amish s booksI ll give you 2easons why One everybody knows about the childhood and formative years of Ram and Sita We all have heard about Raavan but only after the point he crosses paths with Ram I was excited to watch out for his backstory Two the first three books were bound to feel The Amethyst Road repetitive because of the multilinear structure of the series But this one doesn t at least not as intensely as the second book I think the credit goes to the fresh story and the convergence of all the clues left scattered in the first two booksYou won t feel like putting it down until you ve turned the last page The twist at the end is mind numbingPS Watch out for the philosophical debates between Raavan and Vedavat. Nd kill withoutemorseThis exhilarating third book of the Ram Chandra series sheds light on Ravaan the king of Lanka And the light shines on darkness of the darkest kind Is he the greatest villain in history or just a man in a dark place all the timeRead the epic tale of one of the most complex violent passionate and accomplished men of all ti.
