     Not a mytho lesson but a thriller 20 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    The author Amish is an Indian novelist.
    This series has three books, The Immortals of Meluha, The Secret of the Nagas and The Oath of the Vayuputras.

    Initially, before I read the first part ‘The Immortals of Meluha’, I thought that it is a plain novel about mythology and I kept myself from reading it because as a child I had seen Mahabharata, Ramayana and heard from elders about other Indian deities, so my view was that it is some fable about Shivji.

    But I was wrong. My friend told me that it’s totally different and so I decided to give it a try.
    When I started reading the first part, I was surprised. It was nothing like I had imagined. The story was not like a mythology lesson. The story did not contain any mythical beings with powers but focused on depicting Shiva as an ordinary human being whose extraordinary deeds gave him the title of “Mahadev” or God of Gods. The punchline also appealed to me, “The Story of the man, whom legend turned into a god”. Since the book was a page-turner, I ended up finishing the first book in two days and the next parts as and when they released.

    His style of writing, his narration, his portrait of characters just left me asking for more. Also, the story is pacy, interesting and the climax makes you wish for the sequel right away.
    I have read novels of many Indian authors but this author stands out for me.

    This Trilogy is being regarded as the most successful series in the history of Indian publishing.
    Therefore I suggest all that if you haven’t read this trilogy, you are missing on a great piece of Indian literature and so you should read it immediately.

     Read it in one go. 27 April, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Just loved this book. I was on week off from office and saw this book which was laying on my PC desk for few days (last few days has been too busy for me.. seriously :P). So thought of reading some pages of this book as Shiva trilogy has been one of the most fascinating story I've ever read. Just loved Shiva and Sati's character depicted by Amish. Especially Sati's character after her army gets attached near Devagiri... also the kind of description Amish has provided for the fight between Sati and Aten group was thrilling.

    Started reading it from 7Am and completed it at 10.30PM in night. Once you start it.. you just can't leave it in between. Ending might disappoint few readers, but it was still the best ending author could have imagined for this trilogy.

  4.  A very poorly written book. 26 April, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I am surprised at the level of positive feedback this piece of literary absurdity is getting. The first two books in this series were at least interesting from a story line point of view. There was something "refreshing" especially in the whole premise of "nagas" and the portrayal of Lord Shiva as a "tibetan barbarian" and his weed smoking and attitude. However, this third book is bad, and it gets terrible towards the end. Here are five reasons why we should consider this as one of the worst pieces of fiction ever written:

    1. The sheer incompetence of the author to appreciate what Shiva is. (I am not writing more details on the story ....). Amish is good at setting himself up and Shiv bakth in his forward and media utterances. However, he has not even understood what Shiva stands for. Using Shiva's "anger" as an excuse for the actions he makes him do is unforgivable to anyone who believes in God, in Shiva

    2. The description and the language used in conversations (like the use of purely 21st century American slang by our ancients) is pathetic.

    3. The book's ending looks so forced.. it is as if the writer did not know what to do at the end.

    4. While it is okay to take literary liberties, the twisting of what is accepted and what is written in our ancients texts, has gone beyond all reasonable levels

    5 There unbelievable amount of gore... especially in the fighting scenes towards the end. I dont know if this author has read any of the classics that depicted warfare and fighting.

    6. I see may reviewers indicating that Amish has flushed out his characters. Yes - he did that in Book 1 (especially with Shiva, Sati, Bhadra, Parvateshwar), but in this book, many of the characters are so one sided and shallow

    The biggest crime is that such books are unfortunately shadowing really good fiction that keeps coming out of authors across India, especially from the regional languages. It is so sad that publishing has become nothing but smart marketing.....

    So, do not buy this book......wastes of Time & Money

  5.  Tragic! Disappointed thoroughly! 17 September, 2013 On Junglee.com
    The immortals made you fall in love with the characters, because it simplified so many characters that I had otherwise known as mystic powers. Part 2 was just about OK as the Naga character built in the immortals was revealed to be someone so absolutely unexpected, that it was disappointing.

    The finale, though large in size is 0 on quality! It's insanely dumb to try and fool your readers with a 3rd part when you could have as well made the 2nd book this large and included these plots in the same! Clearly because, the plots in the 3rd don't deserve a book of their own!

    It's annoying that the author gives unwanted details, plots and questions just to make the book the size it is! The plot just falls apart towards the end.. there's no logic.. (whereas that's what the 1st book was all about), why does shiva use the forbidden pashupatiasthra even when he's strictly told not to?! no answer, if all that was required to straighten things up was save some of the somras knowledge and make saraswati non-existent, that could have been achieved far more easily than by killings,wars and unwanted deaths! we're made to believe that there is going to be an amazing logical end and reasoning for all the destruction caused and you're left with absolutely none.

    It's just such an absolutely absurd finale! Amish, I say this with utter disappointment, :( :( :( sorry but I think this book has activated my third eye!!!

  6.  What happened...Mr Tripathi? 15 September, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Nicely written, it had a simple conflict of interest - evil has risen and the hero has to defeat him.

    As soon as you begin reading the book you'll notice that something is off. For about sixty pages you'll be plastered with the occurrence of imbalance between the good and the evil with the words evil and good being thrown on your face ten times per pages. I was badly thinking of gifting Mr Tripathi a good thesaurus dictionary. Repeating one and the same thing for about sixty pages, just to increase the thickness of the book is not inspiring - it's boring, I wonder how many readers Mr Tripathi lost just in the first half of the book.

    Then?

    BAM!!!!

    The evil is not some guy like Lord Voldemort, it's just an energy drink with the added ingredient of immortality and perfect health! So evil! Voldemort must be turning in his grave.

    Then follows the tale of the personification of Somras. It was good in the past, but as decades passed on, evil engulfed it and now it's totally evil! WOW! The whiskers on my hands have risen.

    It's like he tried taking a page from Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist - If you desire something deeply the whole universe will be there to support you. (Farah Khan stole the dialogue for Om Shanti Om, bollywood is full of copycats, anyways...where were we?) It was all planed. Shiva's uncle had fed him a drink that would make Shiva's throat turn blue when he drank the Somras at the 'right time'. Yeah, sounds like a prophecy. Another part of the prophecy was the only Shiva would be able to recognise the evil when the time comes. What if Shiva's foot had hit a rock while walking and what if that had resulted in enlighting Shiva, making him conclude that a rock was evil? Didn't Mr Tripathi consider such a plot scenario?

    The worst part of this book? It took me two months to complete it. It was damn boring.

  7.  Potential Wasted... 21 May, 2014 On Junglee.com
    The Shiva trilogy by Amish is an imaginative retelling of stories related to one of the most prominent figures of Hindu mythology - Lord Shiva, who is worshipped as one of the holy trinity of Hindu religion. Keeping the religious undertones aside, the first book in the series - The Immortals of Meluha - had started on a high note and the series had shown undeniable promise. Keeping Amish's insistence on using modern English aside, the story felt jarring and predictable - especially by the time we reach to the Oath of the Vayuputras. The characterization, which began on a high note with 'Immortals' somehow flatlined by the time one reaches 'Oath'. To go into more details would bring out spoilers, however I will only say this is the first book in over two years which I regretted purchasing and couldn't finish till the end, no matter how hard I slogged with it.

    I would rate this as 1 star, since I cannot go lower. Would not recommend this installment to anyone.

  8.  Not disappointing but could have been better 4 September, 2013 On Junglee.com
    The last installment of this trilogy certainly did not live up to the expectations that were raised by the second one. I will keep this review short which Amish had the opportunity of doing with his book but failed to do. Altogether too much time spent on inconsequential sections of the book without adding any value to the plot. The storyline was dragged through some pretty poor narrative. The book does absolutely no justice to the title which suggests of a major influence of the Vayuputras on the story. Finally, the book should have ended at about the 85% mark but dragged on for another few chapters which made no climactic sense at all. This is probably the longest epilogue that I have ever read.

    Overall, the book (rather the entire series) is great for kids (who don't have a penchant for reading) but leaves an elder reader with an aftertaste that implies lack of thoroughness of plot and overly simplified story telling.

  9.  Overdone! 28 February, 2014 On Junglee.com
    The Shiva trilogy is one of the most finest work by an indian author in recent times..

    The trilogy starts with The immortals of meluha which is very good and interesting. The Secrets of the Naga lives up to the trend set by its predecessor.
    The disappointment comes with the third Installment of the series - "The Oath of the Vayuputra" (perhaps the wait and expectation was very high)
    It is invariably long and at times become boring. At points the plot goes off hand into different dimensions. Perhaps the stage set by the first two parts was pretty high..

    Their bits in the Vayuputra which is intriguing, gripping and resourceful but the problems lies in its binding..
    if you have read the first two installment you will without a doubt get your hands on this one..
    If you cut the overdone bits - vayuputra is as good as its predecessors..!

  10.  A beautiful journey through the Final lap of Shiva's Life 24 September, 2013 On Junglee.com
    This is probably one of the "Biggest" book I read in my life..! Having thrilled with previous two books, I was excited to read this from page one. This book did not disappoint in any aspects. There is love, pain, action, drama, peace, spirituality, divineness, everything! Two aspects that I loved the most are the conversation between Vasudev and Shiva, and the action sequence where Sati fights her furuous battle. The narration by author definitely takes you the center of the action and passes the thrilling experience in the reader. The final phase of Shiva is completely opposite to what he had been throughout the volumes and leaves tears in the eyes. Overall, a very good reading experience.
