the book is quite different to the thought of Ramayana as read and seen by most of us. book tries to give a sneak peek into the life of ravana. however, there are a lot of points where it seems references are taken from the Indian version of Ramayana and colour it with that of the Asura. e.g. Sita giving the Agni test, death of Laxman, Ram/Laxman getting healed miraculously when hurt in fact, the Hindu version of Ramayana gives a lot more praise to ravana as a bhakt of Shiva, Brahma and the shiv tandav; whereas this book proclaims ravana to be a mere human at best a good one time read..

very informative, lots of insight into the Indian heritage, author has done an extensive research. some of the research could have been rationalised and focused more on the main plot behind this book

excellent read
