This is my second book of the author. The first one was truly the best. The start of the book is little slow but as it progresses the story unfolds very well. The narrator is too good.

Disappointed

It is not the story of Ravan what disappointed me but the way author put his own thinking and prejudice in it. I think the book ends at the chapter where Ravana is killed. After that this book is nothing but crap. Author haa written whatever he could just to target caste system. But if he had researched well he would have known that during Ramayan we had varna system that was not based on birth. Caste system come much later when kindoma divided and different cultures originated. Also, it is a shame that author mentioned caste system as a part of vedas which is terrible. Vedas never mentioned caste but varna. Another problem was with the maths that author tried to put to justify the ages of characters. Those numbers are very off. Ravan's perspective is good but author's perspective is totally wrong.

Overall a very good book. What bothered me was the likeness with Wind up bird Chronicle, and no character development. The story however, is nice with lots of beautiful moments and some really scary ones Gave me chills. Awesome performance by audible. Makes book listing much better experience.

A good read!

Enjoyed the audio book very much. The concept of this book is really awesome and it's written really well. Only thing I didn't like is the ending. Could've been better. The whole summing up is not very good. It just feels abrupt.

Enjoyed it

The book is written exceptionally well and performed amazingly. But this is a very strrange story and sometimes feels plotless. I wouldn't say it is bad, but you can't really make any clear sense out of it. It starts with a kind of detective story but suddenly turns into a war time tale and then into a thriller and fantasy. I really couldn't make much sense of the plot, but it is definitely amazing to hear. Overall I loved it

This is my third book of Murakami and the best one. Prior I read 1Q84, which also great but this is amazing. the story, writing style, characters, all are so good and I loved every second of it. In fact, 1Q84 has lots of similarities with this one. I would suggest to read this before 1Q84. These are totally different, but has similarities in many ways.

Such an amazing story and great narration. Only downside would be that there are many parts totally irrelevant to the story. They are just to stretch the story nothing else and wished it had answered many questions but I like this style of not reveaing everything. Apart from that everything is great.
