SITA WARRIOR OF MITHILA (2017) 5.5/8 Yes Mythical Fiction Rs.175 (Amazon.in) Amish Tripathi [3.91/3530 ratings Goodreads]
Review #422 (Book Review #122) :
13 days 361 pgs, finally completed 2nd book of Amish’s 2nd series – Ramchandra series. The book is SITA: warrior of Mithila.
This time Amish has taken a different approach for his new series, unlike his last one – 1. this is not a series of just 3 books 2. this has 1st 3 books dedicated to 3 main characters of Hindu mythology – Ram, Sita & Raavan. This is the 2nd book which depicts Sita’s life from childhood to the point where all these 3 books will converge i.e. at her kidnapping by Raavan. 1st book shows Ram’s perspective. Once the next book Raavan will come, henceforth the books start from the same point from 4th one (explained in the book itself).
As written above, it is the story of Sita, wife of Hindu God Ram, and about her life from birth till the point of her kidnapping by Lanka’s demon king Raavan.
The language is as simple as it could be, fluid, you don’t need dictionary plus anybody can read it. Well constructed storyline, which we all have seen in his 1st series “Shiva trilogy” , and in prequel of this book as well. There are some new words are added for simplicity, along with pure hindi-sanskrit origins and the incidents are written in relevance to the current times. Many incidents and happenings looks inspired from current happenings of India, maybe the author has deliberately tried to put the matching references, and they are good.
Some negative point which I told in 1st book review as well are, the author is using the name INDIA, instead he could have used Bharat for the dialogues or references given in the book, some more words used like NEANDERTHAL , looks odd reading these name, better if he could come up with a better sanskrit / hindi names for these as well. One time read, I rate 3.5/5
Jai Raam ji ki 🙂
