And Professor Kevin Cordi’s Review of Mahabharata: The Eternal Quest
“High school and college classes in the United States are known for teaching Homer’s epic journeys as chronicled in the Iliad and the Odyssey; however, in Andy Fraenkel’s new book (2013) we are reminded of another strong, just as dynamic journey. He tackles successfully the daunting task of retelling India’s epic Mahabharata in his work Mahabharata: The Eternal Quest.
The Mahabharata, has existed in various forms for thousands of years. Fraenkel draws on his ability as a storyteller for over 25 years and maneuvers through the story’s monumental terrain with ease. His powerful narrative captivates and sustains the listener. Not only are the vivid battle scenes felt in Fraenkel’s skillful prose, but also the essence of the affairs of the heart as well. This is a human story.”
