Writing Skills - Author Review

I won't be writing the plot of the books. No words can describe it better than the story itself. However, I would like to comment on the nature if the author's writing.

Here, my author is AMISH TRIPATHI.


I have read all 4 of Amish Tripathi's books. Namely :

  1. The Immortals of Meluha
  2. Secret of the Nagas
  3. Oath of the Vayuputras
  4. The Scion of Ishvaku 
Every character is explained beautifully with a lot of feeling. How the author has been able to restrict his imagination to a fixed number of pages and yet make every character feel so full of life is something I can't get over.

Every incident brought out a new emotion; a sense of respect. Every page in itself felt like a climax. If you believe that Harry Potter and the Twilight Saga or 50 Shades of Grey are unbeatable, I suggest you give the Shiva Trilogy and Ram Chandra Series a try.

Amish Tripathi makes each character come alive - Be it Sati (full of motherly love, her admiration for her husband, helpful nature) or Shiva ( always ready to help anyone in need, open minded and curious), Parvateshvar (the General who lived the "real" life, who held his allegiance to his motherland above everything else, who kept his lifelong celibacy vow) or Anandmayi ( The Ayodhyan Princess who was a determined soul and who felt freedom was above everything), Ganesh (obedient son, noble leader, smart and knowledgeable Naga) or Karthik (the warrior and super intelligent) from the Shiva Trilogy. Or be it Sita (full of ideals who understood things logically) or Ram ( the law abiding royal, respectful husband and prince)  or Lakshman (protector of his brother) from the Ram Chandra series.

Even though the stories are set 2000 years ago, its incidents, thoughts and beliefs are quite relevant to the 21st century.

This was Tripathi's style of writing. Every author is different. Their uniqueness is what attracts us to their books.

I would like to end by saying :

Every person live 1 life
But a reader lives a 1000 lives.
