Immortals of Meluha

The Immortals of Meluha (Shiva Trilogy, #1)The Immortals of Meluha by Amish Tripathi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An absolute page turner. This book is so lucid and capturing that you'll find yourself drifting away into the story. Even when you keep it down and get involved in your other commitments, you'll be beckoned by it.

Portraying Mythological characters as people next door, the language, scene buildup and character sketches don't take much time to understand the plot and set up. Word by word details of action scenes of all, how swords, knives and body's are easily being moved whenever there's a fight is simplified and imaginable. How the legend of Neelkanth unfolds and how Shiva earns his due respect from the staunch believers and followers of Shri Ram is amazing. The story inspires us that even the legends were not spared of expectations, failures, challenges, dilemas to becoming what they were destined to be. But much like them even we must follow the path of our Karma, do the best in given situation, have faith in self and allow ourselves to be guided by one supreme power when in need.
