    "Better versions exist"

    Not bad overall. Reader changed voices between characters which get annoying after a while. There are better versions of this book out there albeit not on audio.

    "We enjoyed it"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The narration is very impressive except for Sita's voice which was disappointing. Ram's voice was the best. The story line is impressive and description of forest is awesome. my 10 year old son also loved it. We have not finished the book yet
    We are 50% done though and looking forward to completing it


    What other book might you compare The Ramayana to and why?

    by Ramesh Menon. We wish for an audible version of that book soon


    What about Samrat Chakrabarti’s performance did you like?

    Yes except when he tried the voice of a female. That was a huge disappointment.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    description of the beauty of the forest


    Any additional comments?

    the voice of sita should have ben gentle and good.

    "Overall, quite enjoyable!"

    I enjoyed listening to the story. The characterization is good, and the narration is excellent. I have to say, I am a bit disappointed in the ending, however.

    Story
    "Thoroughly enjoyed the telling of this story"

    I'm fascinated by the ancient classics and found myself strangely addicted to this one as I listened. It is beautifully narrated, quite gripping in places with the odd unexpected twist. I particularly enjoy the moral undertones and insights into ancient views of God and evil and how it is depicted.
