Description for Mahabharata - K.S: 1
Rating: Excellent I have read the book 6 times & am still reading it & everytime I read it I feel as if I am reading it for the first time. The style of writing is so simple & lucid & you can feel as if the scenes are taking place in front of you. It really is a great book & everybody must read it. --Arpita Chowdhury
Rating: Good I enjoyed every moment of this book. I felt that the characters came alive and that the story was riveting. I could hardly put it down. It made me wish that I could read Sanskrit and enjoy the full poem. --Simon Perry
The Mahabharata is not a mere epic;it is a romance,telling the tale of heroic men and women and of some who are divine;it is a whole literature itself,containing a code of life,a philosophy of social and ethical relations,and spectacular thought on human problems that is hard to rival;but,above all,it has for it's core with Gita,which is,as the world is beginning to find out,the noblest of scriptures and the grandest of sagas the climax of which is reached in the wondrous Apocalypse in the Eleventh Canto.Through such books alone,the harmonies underlying true culture,I am convinced,will one day reconcile the disorders of modern life. To the English reader,this volume will bring home the validity of the comment made by generations of Indian authors that "what is not there is nowhere to be found." --Dr.K.M.Munshi

What I like about her rendering is ability to distil wisdom without disturbing narrative flow and strong undercurrent of devotion that flows throughout.
