Mythology is a very interesting genre, and when narrated with that interest, makes for wonderful reading. Many authors try to write in this genre; some succeed, others do not. I quite enjoyed a few of Devdutt’s earlier books, so picking this book wasn’t that difficult a choice.
Indian mythology is filled with many characters… Gods, Goddesses, Demigods and Demons etc. It’s wonderful to read about them. It’s one of the more popular genres when it comes to the world of Indian writing in English. Few authors do that genre justice, and Anuja is one of them. When this book came my way, I didn’t hesitate to take it up.
Devdutt Pattanaik’s writing is always interesting. His views on Indian mythology are interesting, and have loved quite a few of his books. This one is a short read, a part of a bigger book that I hope to read sometime in 2018.
I love reading stories from Indian mythology. The depth of that genre is such that there are so many stories yet to be heard or known. When I read the summary to this book, I was intrigued because I hadn’t heard of the character of Vishpala at all.
I love reading about Indian mythology. I’ve heard quite a lot from it from my grandparents while growing up. I admire Devdutt Pattanaik’s writing when it comes to that genre, so when I found this book on Kindle Unlimited, I borrowed it without a second thought.
When it comes to sequels, the book has to be just as amazing as the previous book in the series, if not better. I’ve awaited this book, The Conspiracy at Meru, ever since I finished reading the first book, The Guardians of the Halahala. The author, thankfully, had the patience to withstand my constant enquiry on the release date of this book. Two years after I reviewed the first, I finally put my thoughts to words on this sequel.
