    Amish has done a brilliant job with this. I love how all 3 books are interconnected so well and it doesn’t feel like I have read the same scenes in the earlier book. The narration is flawless, the entire book played like a movie in my mind.

  2. Vinayak Kulkarni (Verified Purchase)

    The narrative: Simple, profound and effective! Subtle hints to the various versions of Raavan and his history! Kudos to the whole team for bringing out the fact that Raavan was nothing more than the most knowledgeable and fearless person of his times!
