    1. A big book of errors!! I suggest not to read this book!! I am shocked that RK math is promoting a book like this!! No. Of errors are less but they are unexcusable errors!!I request the publishers to correct those and reprint!!

    2. While I really loved the history that came with these stories and their ties to Hindu and Buddhist religion, I had a very hard time being able to stay on track with it. Perhaps it is because it is because I am not as well versed in this area of mythology and religion as I should have been. But there was also no map or pronunciation guide to help the reader understand the context and language a little better.

    4. A wonderful series of stories about Indian deities in general. It talks about the cosmology and noble gods and goddesses and other such things. Some of the scenes and events would make a fantastic movie or series of movies. For instance, when Haruman the Monkey God tries to find Sita, the wife of Rama and the adventures he goes on are really cool. It would be a pretty hard R if it turned out the way I imagined it.

    5. Tried to read this but didn't get beyond 1st chapter.Quite confusing and I couldn't quite follow what the author was going on about.There must be a better book that describes the Hindu texts and Buddhist philosophy??

    6. I only had to read to page 322 for my class. So I'm putting it as read. I would like to say I enjoyed it, but I found it rather hard to get into.
