I love readings Epics and old, old mythologies and really making the connections between them all over the world.

El marco histórico de estos mas de 24 mil versos tiene un altisimo valor literario, y la lectura de una versión corta (simplemente por número de paginas) en medio de nuestra vida acelerada de estos tiempos, nos permite contar realmente con una belleza por su valor y una buena oportunidad para disfrutar esta obra. Esta edición con una breve descripcion de la biografia del Autor y el marco histórico, dan un panorama interesante para dar inicio a la lectura de las hazañas y aventuras. 3 siglos A.C. ...more

Nice book. Best in original language
This is a wonderfully accessible retelling of the Indian epic of Rama and Sita. Although abridged, it's easy to get a flavour of the original poem. My only complaint is that the kindle edition is in need of some proof-reading, as there are many errors that interupt the flow of an otherwise beautiful translation.
Una lectura muy interesante, muy recomendable para conocer un poco los relatos hinduistas.
