Publisher's Summary

Ram Rajya. The Perfect Land. But perfection has a price. He paid that price.

3400 BCE. India.

Ayodhya is weakened by divisions. A terrible war has taken its toll. The damage runs deep. The demon King of Lanka, Raavan, does not impose his rule on the defeated. He instead imposes his trade. Money is sucked out of the empire. The Sapt Sindhu people descend into poverty, despondency and corruption. They cry for a leader to lead them out of the morass. Little do they appreciate that the leader is among them. One whom they know. A tortured and ostracised prince. A prince they tried to break. A prince called Ram.

He loves his country, even when his countrymen torment him. He stands alone for the law. His band of brothers, his Sita, and he against the darkness of chaos.

Will Ram rise above the taint that others heap on him? Will his love for Sita sustain him through his struggle? Will he defeat the demon Lord Raavan who destroyed his childhood? Will he fulfil the destiny of the Vishnu?

Begin an epic journey with Amish's latest: the Ram Chandra Series.

I didn’t like the narration

The story might have been more interesting if the narrator had been less dramatic . He is was too screechy and loud and dramatic for my liking

Exceptional narrator.

The narrator made the story further interesting. His voice makes you imagine as if the scenes are occurring right in front of you.

changed the story to his liking and its boring

swayamvar episode was taken from mahabharata and wrote it to his liking. most of the story is modified to his liking. there were dates mentioned in the book like 7032 BC and places like Egypt, episodes like that of Dhenuka and I believe he didnt care of the credibility of the information. things that have happened already needs a thorough research before putting them on to paper. utterly ridiculous to write something in the name of creativity.

Excellent story writing

Poor performance on audible(specially the moods and yelling irritates).
.
Apart from the issue with audio performance, the story was brilliant and written to the logic. It would have being great to understand the story from raavan side as well.

Beautiful enactment of 3000 year old script in modern language

Two reasons to read this book.
Fact one that original was written 3000 years ago is a reason enough.
Secondly that original scripture refers to another Vedic scripture predating this one by another 3000 years, shows how unlearned we are today.
