Product description

Review

“For anyone who is familiar with the author's previous works, the book meets all expectations, for Amish bends it better than Beckham” - scroll.in

”Overall, Scion of Ikshvaku is a fast-paced, action-packed retelling of the Ramayana. I look forward to the next volume in the series” – Daily O

Like the Shiva trilogy, this again is not a retelling, but rather a complete re-imagining of the original story using the same characters but with fresh perspectives and modern sensibilities” – New Indian Express

About the Author

Described as 'India's first literary popstar' by world-renowned film director Shekhar Kapur, Amish's unique combination of crackling story-telling, religious symbolism and profound philosophies has made him an overnight publishing phenomenon, with spiritual guru Deepak Chopra hailing Amish's books as 'archetypal and stirring'.

Amish's Shiva Trilogy — The Immortals of Meluha (2010). The Secret of the Nagas (2011) and The Oath of the Vayuputras (2013) — has over 2.2 million copies in print with gross retail sales of over Rs 60 crores, making it the fastest selling book series in Indian history. His books have been translated into 14 Indian and International languages. His next book, titled Scion of Ikshvaku, the book 1 of Ram Chandra Series, is expected to release later this year.

Forbes Magazine has listed Amish amongst the 100 most influential celebrities in India, three years in a row. He has also received the Society Young Achievers Award for literature in 2013, Man of the Year by Radio City, Communicator of the Year by PR Council of India and Pride of India award (Literature). Amish was also selected as an Eisenhower Fellow, a prestigious American programme for outstanding leaders from around the world.

Amish is a graduate of IIM-Calcutta and worked for 14 years in the financial services industry before turning to full-time writing. He lives in Mumbai with his wife Preeti and son Neel.

I haven't read the book yet but I loved the contents I got along with the book. Thanks amazon for the deal, I managed to get Collector's Edition - Personally Signed by the author. The book looks super awesome. It is hardcover and pages are of good quality.

Okay so i will split my review in two parts: A)Delivery & quality of the book, B) Content & the narration.
A) Delivery & quality- Delivery was bang on time. I received the book on the launch date i.e. 22nd June in the evening at around 7 pm. Good job amazon. the book mark received was good and impressive with symbols used from the book itself. however the book mark wasnt free the way it was propagated to be. price of the book reduced by about 60 rs on the same day albiet without the book mark. so by pre-ordering one month in advance we just got a bookmark for 60 bucks. fair enough!! i personally feel the marketing could have better for customers to see more value into it.
Now the second issue is with the publisher "westland'. the book if of pathetic pathetic quality. i have never seen a book quality being this bad. the publishers have really cut corners on the quality here and eventually have given us something which is worse than the locally printed books. even they use better quality paper for cover. refer the picture attached.
2) Storyline- Amish has tried to maintain his original style of writing which he started with shiva trilogy but issue is to do the same he has become too too repetitive & predictable. in a desperate attempt he has tried linking everything back to his earlier works which doesnt work all the time. Also, i feel the book is full of sermons & preachings about an ideal society etc...which is too much of gyaan. so the book never grips you. one doesnt feel like finishing it in one go. also, what made shiva trilogy a success was that there is very little known to us about lord shiva. there has not been any epic which highlights his story so much....so people accepted Amish's version. however wrt Lord Ram his story has been imbibed in most readers.

facts given in this book are beyond historical facts. The starting page shows period of rama at the time of kidnapping of sita is given as 3400 BCE
whereas the period of mahabharat as astronomically proved by various scholar is 3067 BCE. and period of Rama is given atleast 3000/4000 years earlier to mahabharat.
2ndly at the time of kidnapping of sita there was no presence of JATAYU . He came when the kidnapping was already taken place and he met rawan in the mid way whereas the book shows the immediate presence of JATAYU when ravan was kidnapping sita and she cried for Rama .
This is the starting chapter and Mr Amish has tried to manupulate history somehow or other,.

I have just read 2 chapters and I doubt some more facts may have been given beyond history, due to this I was thinking not to read it but will read to know what more is given in book beyond facts. It is Just a type of Novel just to make earning of money.

Book is good. As per expectations from Amish. not needed to create equvalent of some contemporary incidents.

to amazon: WHY???
Are we doing a crime pre-ordering? Why the extra fine for the people who pre-order few months in advance? And why the special discount to those who dont?

They say, "A good book should leave you exhausted by the end because you live a thousand lives while you read it." I truly understood the meaning when I read Amish's books... I roared as Shiva, cried as Bhrigu, Fought as Kartik, followed my lord as Nandi and died as Sati when reading The Shiva Trilogy. And he did it yet again!

With the Ram Chandra Series, he made my soul Rejuvinate... I am the Ram that I never believed in when I run to save Sita... I am the Sita who follows the Law of the Land and I am the Lakshman when I follow my brother relentlessly....

The only issue is that the book has only 354 pages to re live... I had to stop reading because I don't want the book to finish quickly and wait for the next one for what seems to be eternity... Every page I read is embarked upon my soul as a memory... a memory that I witnessed in my mind. a beautiful word picture of what feels like the truth... alternate history perhaps... not mythology, history!

May Lord Mahadev and Maa Shakti bless Amish on his way to glory! Amazing reading experience!

Love his style of narration, started after reading The Shiva Trilogy. Awaiting the next part now.
Although did find some contradictory statements in the book. The one I remember is Sita's introduction as being wheat complexioned and somewhere on the later part being mentioned as fair skinned.m

Amish I have been a big fan of you till you produced this one. You rushed into writing this one to cash in the recent fame you have found with your previous trilogy. While reading the book i genuinely get to see the touch of your writing genious, but i think now you are doing over with this naga concept. In shiva trilogy nagas were projected as the results of ill effects of toxic wastes of massly produced somras. In this book there is no somras in mass production, then how do you justify so many naga characters. I am sure in next book of the series you will come up with an entire army of monkey faced nagas. Try something else, naga concept doesn't fit in this case.
