Sita: Warrior of Mithila (Ram Chandra #2) Reviews
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
Quote from the Book I Liked - The best laid plans always have a tendancy to get spoiled. There have always been surprises. (Para 5 , Page 335)
Stars - 3.5/5
Synopsis - India, 3400 BCE.

Reading the most famous stories of Hindu mythology from a female perspective can be fun, unfortunately Sita:Warrior of Mithila is only the second one I have come across (Palace of Illusion being the first one). The writing is simple and some pages explore the theme of philosophy just like Amish's other books. The story telling is better than the first book but for the obvious reason that we do not know much about Sita so every page breathes a new perspective
He once again devotes an entire chapte ...more
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
The second instalment in Ram chandra series has sweetened plot. This was a riveting read for me. The potrayal of Sita as a warrior is one of the least surprise the book has to offer. Eventhough the time line of this book is same as that of the first book, it was still a thrill to watch these forming a complimentary pair. This
book was the viewpoint of sacred faminine incarnate. I certainly enjoyed the hyperlink story telling technique and am transfixed at the ease with the author handles the st ...more
Too many forces are in play, forces you can't control, forces beyond your reach, the god of fire, one true God, Iraiva, the malayaputhras,vayuputhras,vaanars, kumbakarna, Raavan, ram, sita, and much more. the book opens with a shocking truth, new Vishnu had been chosen and it's not ram.
Amish is back with his second installment of Ramchandra series, sita warrior of mithila, and it is brilliant. There has been many retelling of Ramayana especially sita's perspective, but all tried to make her a v ...more
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.

What an amazing book. Waited so long for this book. As always book Amish's books are very interesting. Book started with a suspense which will be uncovered in Raavan (next book). I found this book better than previous one. I don't know why some readers are comparing with other version of Ramayana.
This book is Amish's interpretation of Ramayana. The author has exemplary built the structure of linear story-telling, linking incidents from the 'Scion of Ikshvaku', and running both the books paralle ...more
