Brilliantly written and Narrated.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Ramayan is a story my grandfather would narrate to me when I was a child, and living in India was something I grew up with and just knew . However, being an epic it is also a long and the language in the previous versions I have read was difficult to follow and not as engaging at times. I would certainly recommend this audiobook to anyone who would like to know this story but simply does not have the time or drive to read the original version.


What did you like best about this story?

Although the book is fairly brief considering the length of the original epic, it covers the salient parts of the epic in an easy engaging style. The language is easy to follow and eloquently descriptive.


What about Ayur Pulle and Shreyas Pulle ’s performance did you like?

Ayur and Shreyas were articulate and expressive. The narration was clear and crisp.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely.. I listened to this book in one sitting.

Ramayana brought to life

Any additional comments?

Shreyas and Ayur Pulle’s honest re-telling of the Ramayana ancient Indian epic poem is an accessible and engaging listen, bringing to life the struggles of the divine prince Rama to rescue his wife Sita from the demon king Ravana. In its original form, the Ramayana is one of the largest ancient epics in world literature consisting of nearly 24,000 verses. However, the Pulle brothers ensure that the listener can easily follow the plot of this undeniably complex story with its many characters, kingdoms and divine beings. The use of music to create atmosphere and aid the listener’s transportation into the world of the story worked well but could have been developed further as a tool to engage the listener and allow the plot some space to breathe. Overall, an interesting and informative listen for anyone interested in the origins of Diwali.
