This is a condensed version of not the original Ramayana as handed down to us in Sanskrit, but of the Tamil version of the story that Sri Narayanji grew up with. There are versions of the Ramayana in nearly all Indian dialects and languages, and as Tamil is one of the oldest, it is also quite interesting to see a translation from that language. The tale is told fairly faithfully, although much is left out (this is necessary to avoid having to sell several volumes to tell the whole tale, as the original tale is HUGE). I thought that it may have been a rather boring story, especially to a modern reader, but boy, was I ever wrong! This was one of the most entertaining and gripping books that I have ever read. It tells the story of Ramachandra's youth to his betrayal by his stepmother, his journey in the desert, and how he defeated Ravana, who had kidanapped Sita and brought her to Sri Lanka, as well as Hanuman's revelries. Rama is still an excellent example of Hindoo ideals, but the primary value of the story for me was not so much religious or ethical as much as it was simply a fascinating journey into the vast world of Indian literature. A wonderful read; I would recommend it to anyone.

Ramayana the ancient epic tale of India most popular in a hundred forms like music, dance, art and folklore is narrated in this book by a story teller who has a very suitable traditional background and deep insight into the religious, social and political values upheld in there. The easy flowing language and the appropriate usage of words as in all his novels add to the flavour.This book can be read and reread many times like many devout Hindus read the original sanskrit version of it

The book accurately translates the epic of journey of Rama with fluidity and is a joy to read. Though the translation is good, much of the of Hindu poetry is lost and therefore a vital part of Hindu culture is missing in the translation.
I would have liked to see more of music of India come through.

I found the tale of Rama was a great tale but the way in which it was summarized was poor. The author left out important details and added not so important facts.
