Sita: Warrior of Mithila (Ram Chandra #2) Reviews
Well.. Well... A long wait indeed and I Pre-ordered this book for two reasons. Reason One I thought Amish would have done enough research because of the 2 damn years? Duh! and the Reason two being its Sita and in his Shiva Trilogy he kept Parvathy in a high pedestal and the character was narrated in a much better way.
I really felt the narrative style to be way too sloppy with this book. Initially, I admired this guy for bringing in a perspective for the so-called Indian way of life to Mythologi ...more
I never liked Ramayan (or Ramcharitmanas). The main reason being the treatment of character of Sita . Though I have never read the original Ramayan , I have heard stories and read about Ramayan . Almost in every story Sita's character is depicted firstly as an obedient wife who follows her perspective lacking husband (Ram in my opinion is a character without his own perspective )for a fourteen years exile , than a helpless kidnapped wife waiting for her husband to rescue her , then when her husb ...more
Before I start pinning down my views on this book, I would request the readers not to judge this series by what you already know from Valmiki’s Ramayana. This book is not a sequel to the first one - Scion of Ikshvaku. While the first one is entirely about Ram’s origin, this focuses on Sita. Amish Tripathi’s book gives a new identity to Sita. From a quiet and obedient character she emerges as a leader, fighter and a ruler. The book unveils her origin, her relationship with her adopted pa ...more
Not at all impressed with this story line and narration. I did the mistake of re-reading Scion of Ikshvaku before starting this one. Half the conversations, plots , narrations are exactly the same.. word to word. Even if I ignore the replication of scenes , narrations from Ikshvaku to Sita ; given that Sita is an (alleged) sequel ; I can not ignore the superficial and unintelligent character build ups and conversations. I found myself holding the book and re-reading few lines just to understand ...more
A major letdown. But the series still keeps me invested
Scion of ikshvaku hit a major chord with me, a chord that stood apart from those hit by the shiva trilogy. Because the philosophy had a softer, and a broader tone to it as opposed to the sharper and radical tone adopted in the shiva trilogy. It was the injection of serene flow of themes more than the fantasized storyline that made it satisfying. So naturally I had expected more of the same and much more from the second book of the series. A ...more
A retelling of one of the greatest Indian Epics and with a feminist spin. What could go wrong? I thought that too but this book failed to stir anything stronger than luke-warm feelings. The novel started out great and Sita's character was dealt with finesse. She is portrayed as smart and skilled with weapons. The ultimate heroine. As the story progressed, I just lost interest with all the unnecessary explanations and sermons regarding politics. The story came to a standstill and only started mov ...more
Actual rating- 3.5 stars
Amish has certainly redefined the way India will look at its beloved Goddess. This according to me is the most fascinating and unparalleled achievement of this book.
