The Ramayana is one of the best-known epics in the world. It is the tale of Rama, the Prince of Ayodhya, who exiles himself to the forest for 14 years to honor his father's Word.
In the forest, Rama, his wife, Sita, and his brother, Lakshmana, meet new friends and unusual foes, and each day brings new adventures. But Ravana of Lanka, the King of Demons, ruins it all by abducting Sita. To rescue her, Rama enlists the help of Hanuman and his monkey army.

While the cover suggests the story is most appropriate for children, the dynamic and animated style will keep any listener glued to the end! The narration and many voices really make the story come alive. Genuinely superb.
loved it and it was hard to stop listening after my daily commute. This is a fascinating story with lots of metaphors that pertain to life situations.
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.
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
by Ramesh Menon. We wish for an audible version of that book soon
Yes except when he tried the voice of a female. That was a huge disappointment.
description of the beauty of the forest
the voice of sita should have ben gentle and good.
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.
"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.
