Book Review: Raavanputr Meghnad

Raavanputr Meghnad: Prince of Lanka is a book by author Kevin Missal. 

The narrative is interesting as he narrates the story from the perspective of the four main characters. He doesn’t break the suspense as he moves from the story of one character to another. His story also gives a different perspective on the Ramayan. I loved how he slowly revealed layers of understanding and he leaves it to us to decide who is good. 

It is also nice how he opts for the lesser-known names for some characters, Prameela instead of Sulochana, Suparnika, and Meenakshi instead of Surpanakha. Overall, I think that even though there are some typographic errors, the book as a whole is a good read.

Hi, I’m a 12-year-old homeschooler. I’m interested in Carnatic classical music. I’m fascinated by Indian epics and other untold stories.
