Prince of Ayodhya, The - Ashok Banker Reviews

Best Fiction Series by Indian Author
Feb 14, 2008 11:43 AMRead
I started reading this series out a curiosity born out of the unusual concept of someone writing about Ramayana in neither a religious perspective nor critical. I think this brings out the story of Rama in a much more realistic way that what has been presented so far. When I say realistic I do n...Read More

I can't think of a greater delight then the discovery of an author previously unknown. In the last few months I've been fortunate to discover four such wonders. Even better, as far as I was concerned, was that each of them have published either a continuing series of books or a completed series,...Read More

Prince of AyodhyaAshok K Banker’s idea of retelling Ramayana may seem very blasphemous at the first glance, what with his one page description of what Rama has dreamt the night beforeHowever, you have got to be a little patient with Banker. The fact is that he delivers what he has ...Read More

I'm recommending it to everyone I know.If you miss out on this book because of what some armchair critics hav...Read More

What a book--just read it

As a person of Indian parentage growing up in the USA, it's always frustrating to find Greek epics and Norse myths so much a part of everyday speech and culture, but not our own Indian ones. My sister and I were both in a bookstore when we saw this book and we jumped on it! She's just married an...Read More

Books have been a source of knowledge for many centuries. There is atleast one book written on every single topic under the sun. Books are not only written to educate, they are written for leisure and even for the metamorphosis of the soul.There are a hundred categories to choose from when it comes to books.
A great tale elegantly recreated

I generally don't read fiction, especially the more populist bestseller kind. So when I saw this book on the Crossword and other bestseller lists, I was very hesitant. The last thing I was seeking was a ''pastime'' read by some desi John Grisham or Danielle Steele. But several friends whose opin...Read More

I had the pleasure of hearing Ashok K. Banker (the K. stands for Kumar, his given birth name was Ashok Kumar, I learned) at the Chennai launch at Landmark Apex Plaza, the original store last saturday. It was an eye-opener. I had many false notions about Banker, and hisintentions in writing this ...Read More
