Publisher's Summary

A delightfully straightforward and lyrical retelling of the ancient Indian epic of loyalty, betrayal, redemption, and insight into the true nature of life - one of history's most sacred ethical works, rendered with completeness and sterling accuracy for the modern listener.

Here is one of the world's most hallowed works of sacred literature, the grand, sweeping epic of the divine bowman and warrior Rama and his struggles with evil, power, duplicity, and avarice. The Ramayana is one of the foundations of world literature and one of humanity's most ancient and treasured ethical and spiritual works. Includes an introduction by scholar Michael Sternfeld.

    "Good Retelling and Narration"

    This is my second time reading this great religious epic of India. Several years ago, I read Krishna Dharma's version, but I like this version by Egenes & Reddy better. The language is contemporary, yet lyrical, and the narrative is highly readable, yet maintains the profundity of its allegorical and spiritual meanings.

    Gupta has a rich and melodious voice, although it can be monotonous at times. She could be more emotive, and create more distinction between different character's voices. But overall, I liked her narration.
