Review: War of Lanka

War of Lanka War of Lanka by Amish Tripathi
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The book is not at par with the previous books of Amish.

Creative liberty, especially when you claim to be an Indic author, shouldn't ruin the sanctity of the epic. There are many ghastly deviations from the basic premise of Ramayana. This could have been avoided. At times, the book resembled Devdutt Pattnaik style.

If you want to spend some serious time reading Ramayana related books, better avoid this book.

If you didn't read the Valmiki Ramayana, I suggest not to make any opinions on any characters based on the narrative in this book. Take this as a pure fiction not related to Ramayana except the names.
