    I was looking for a concise, easy to remember and interesting guide of Indian Mythology There re some of Greek Mythology and Norse Mythology, but didn t find such for Indian Mythology Then I came across this book.Actually you may take this book as a part of a series, according to me The so called series includes three books The Man From The Egg Unusual Tales About The Trinity, The Serpent s Revenge Unusual Tales from the Mahabharata and The Upside Down King Unusual Tales about Rama and Krishna.These three books can be read by anyone aged from 8 to 80 But, these books should not be used for research purpose as that needs in depth analysis.The best part about the series is Murthy s writing She doesn t make these books complex, hard to understand by including unnecessary informations The flow of writing will give you the feeling you re not reading some short articles, rather a complete book The incidents of any of the book are interconnected.Page quality is pretty good as usual as a Puffin book Completely new books have been delivered.If you love Mythology specially Indian Mythology, then go for these three books You ll surely like it.

    Book Review All the stories are well formulated and are different from each other You many a times want to stop reading to sync with the revealation My biggest one would be when I found out that Ravana was actually defeated by two warriors before Ram, yes you heard it right Check many of these unheard stories out in this book.I recommend it to everyone who likes to read mythology and wants to discover what is hidden between the lines of Geeta,Ramayan , Mahabharata and many of our holy scriptures. What I loved in the book The cover of the book.The language is easy to grasp.The choice of stories been written southindianwriter southindiabooks mythology mythologyfan sudhamurthybooks sudhamurthy booksbooksbooks krishnastories ranstories sudhamurthyfandom mythologyreads chitrabanerjeedivakaruni
