“. . . the original Mahabharata is an epic in every sense of the word. . . The new volume is a condensing of this monumental text that keeps its heroic figures, mystical deeds, and philosophies on justice, honor, and perseverance at the forefront while relating the story with a lighter pace and a visually rich prose style that recalls Western works like The Lord of the Rings trilogy. . . A useful glossary, map, and an outline of the Vedic worldview are included. . . many of the concepts, from Brahmins to mantras, are organically introduced. . . There’s a surprising amount of humor in the story, with effective modern flourishes. . . An inherently approachable tale despite the vastness of the Indian mythology it taps into.” Kirkus Reviews
