it was amazing
Read from February 23 to March 17, 2010

** spoiler alert ** The Ramayana was an amazing book to read. However, this book has so many names that are hard to remember and has some vocabulary words that you need to be able to understand. At the begging of the book, it was boring. However, as you read further on you would find the book more interesting. It deals with this main character named Rama and Sita and Rama’s brothers. They help Rama get to a surtain point were Rama comes face to Ravana. Ravana is an evil monster that is ruler of all evil wanting to destroy Rama. The Ramayana is story of Rama journey to destroy Ravana and along the way; he makes friends with other people that would help with his journey. The theme of the book is good vs. evil, friendship and trust at the end good has its victory. This book is amazing and I would recommend people to read it and its fun to because you get to learn about other people’s culture and you would find it different in particular reason. The reason is that they have these types of gods that protect the world and is different from other religions.
