Publisher's Summary

The story of Yayati is perhaps one of the most intriguing and fascinating episodes of Mahabharata. Yayati was a great scholar and one of the noblest rulers of olden times. He followed the shastras and was devoted to the welfare of his subjects. Even the king of gods, Indra, held him in high esteem. Married to seductively beautiful Devyani, in love with her maid Sharmishtha, and father of five sons from two women, Yayati unabashedly declared, 'My lust for pleasure is unsatisfied'. His quest for the carnal continued, sparing not even his youngest son, and exchanging his old age for his son's youth.

The book is well drafted and draws clear and elaboarate perpective of every character's innate personas. All characters are depicted as privileged humans (and not like Gods) having their own sets of good and bad ideologies. So nicely and eloquently written that u will connect with each person's story.

Sakshi narrated the book impressively but book is recorded at a very slow pwce, i heard d entire book at 1.75x and yet i was comfortable understanding each and every word and the emotion behind it.

Excellent and very deeply description.

In this novel you can learn many ethical values. Though this novel seems to depend on a mythological story from Mahabharata, but the narrator feelings made it beyond the time and Era.

Disappointed in the end!

Spectacular start and great build up but ending was abrupt.

Character or Yadu and Puru was not done justice.

Imaginative and sublime

It's not an outstanding story. It's boring at places and narration is PATHETIC. There are so many mistakes while pronouncing words that it breaks the flow of thoughts and emotions. Definitely dont recommend it.

This is just outstanding work penned by the writer. Hindi translation has couple of glitches, but overall excellent work.
