    1. "From Dharma flow wealth, From Dharma flows happiness,The only thing is meant to uphold and implemented in Life i.e. Dharma. " Aranya Kand (Valmiki Ramayana). I have only one single word for This finest and unaltered English version of "Valmiki Ramayana" is -Splendid. Generally, each year I read almost two and three books based on Ramayana from different writers. But this one will be on my Bookshelf for most honest interpretation of Lord Rama Life. Ramayana itself a story of men who uphold Dharm [...]

    2. This is my second time reading this great religious epic of India. Several years ago, I read Krishna Dharma's version, but I like this version by Egenes & Reddy better. The language is contemporary, yet lyrical, and the narrative is highly readable, yet maintains the profundity of its allegorical and spiritual meanings. The Ramayana is truly epic is both the modern and ancient sense. There are thousands of mythological beings, numerous enchanted locations, harrowing adventures, mammoth battl [...]

    3. No comment necessary on the source material, it is one of the unquestioned great epics of human civilisation. I enjoyed this version by Egenes and Reddy; I appreciated their effort to punctuate the story with the source verse material. I am not able to comment on the Sanskrit translation, but I have read a great deal of epic verse in translation and this seems to follow high-quality convention. As a first-time reader of the tale I liked the clear storytelling voice which retained many of the hal [...]

    4. This book is a new favorite. The writing is beautiful and in no way intimidating, making it an enjoyable story for people of all ages. There is no dull moment and has rich imagery. Once you start reading, it is hard to put the book down once you get started. I definitely recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a gripping story.

    5. Works of historical importance get three stars. They are "good."I'm viewing this story from a modern, Western point of view of course. With that context, there are things in here that don't really resonate -- Rama being flawless and what happens to Sita, notably. But other elements in the structure really have aged well. I like that Rama is forced to ally with monkeys to defeat the demons the guy is overpowered, but at least he has to make some less-overpowered alliances. The main character bein [...]

    6. I loved the Mahabharata but this was not nearly as engaging for me. The story was too fractured, the characters where flat and overly celestial.
