Publisher's Summary

Ram Rajya. The Perfect Land. But perfection has a price. He paid that price.

3400 BCE. India.

Ayodhya is weakened by divisions. A terrible war has taken its toll. The damage runs deep. The demon King of Lanka, Raavan, does not impose his rule on the defeated. He instead imposes his trade. Money is sucked out of the empire. The Sapt Sindhu people descend into poverty, despondency and corruption. They cry for a leader to lead them out of the morass. Little do they appreciate that the leader is among them. One whom they know. A tortured and ostracised prince. A prince they tried to break. A prince called Ram.

He loves his country, even when his countrymen torment him. He stands alone for the law. His band of brothers, his Sita, and he against the darkness of chaos.

Will Ram rise above the taint that others heap on him? Will his love for Sita sustain him through his struggle? Will he defeat the demon Lord Raavan who destroyed his childhood? Will he fulfil the destiny of the Vishnu?

Begin an epic journey with Amish's latest: the Ram Chandra Series.

Interesting

The books as promised provides a new look to the story of Ramayana which we have been hearing from Cildhood.The events though have similarities to the original Ramayan but what stands out the context has been changed to provide a refreshing new vision to the story

Amazing Retelling of Story of RAM

Amish has amazing story telling skills.
I thought it's completely different story from Shiva Trilogy; but lot concepts of Shiva Trilogy continue here. I enjoyed narration by Sagar Arya.

Awesome

An excellent read and listen with brilliant story line from Amish. His brilliance lies in making the stories we've been hearing from childhood into real life stories yet maintaining the morals and values from these intact..

Outstanding Listen

It goes without saying that this is one of the great stories of the world, it has enthralled millions for thousands of years.
The writer is also a very competent word smith.
HOWEVER, the real standout is the reader. Sagar is an accomplished story teller whose voice and phrasing makes each character come alive. Each situation is alive and interesting. He makes a great story even more exciting and compelling. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a great listen !!!

As Shekharji rightly said, 'Amish is literary popstar of India'!

Amazing narration and storytelling by Sagar Arya!
A great improvement from whoever narrated Shiva trilogy.
Awesome read.

Brilliant Visualisation

The narration was excellent, even at places where the narrator modifies his voice to suit the narrative the pronunciation is perfect. The story is gripping and even though all of us are familiar with the story, the twist are excellent.

Utter disappointment

Doesnt stack up to even 10% of Shiva triology. i continued patiently upto 18 chapters expecting that atleast from some chapter this story will become interesting but alas I'm abondoning this book. Its an utter disappointment in fact very boring after awesome stories of Shiva triology. i hope Amish will not waste his time in writing 4 more books on Ramayana if he wants to be among top read authors. Readers like me will simply move on to better stories.

Excellent story writing

Poor performance on audible(specially the moods and yelling irritates).
.
Apart from the issue with audio performance, the story was brilliant and written to the logic. It would have being great to understand the story from raavan side as well.
