Good to read book

Well a good to read . But if somebody wants to go and understand mahabharat he should choose narendra Kohli Mahasamar. But this book is also good. It is written as it is and sometimes its boring. Author should have tried or put some efforts. !!

interesting reading

some parts are too much detailed. it is difficult to remember so many names. otherwise, it was interesting to know about various stories related to parasurama, Janmejaya, garuda, satyavati, shakuntala, parikshit, and many others. overall, it is a good book and keep you hooked if you are interested … (View complete review)

A Good Read for History lovers

Really good read and for someone who would love real epic over modified stories will love it. The way it has been put forth is appreciable, waiting for the third part of the MBA series.

a very mature read.....

I still remember the first time i read the "Prince of Ayodhya". I just couldnt put the book down!!! I finished it in a day and a half and the next day i went back to the library and borrowed "siege of mithila" I was not disappointed. In the same voracious manner i devoured the whole Ramayan series and instead of being satiated i craved for more and more (gluttony, in this case, is not a sin!!!). I bought three of the Krishna Series and I'm nearly done with them....
The MBA, on the other hand, was not what i expected....
To be fair to the author, he has warned us in the Introduction and i quote

Aryavarta brought alive!!

I first discovered Ashok Banker's Prince of Ayodhya in my school's library and since then I have eagerly read all of his works. His Ramayana, Krishna Coriolis and now the Mahabharata. The Mahabharata is his magnum opus as he deftly strings together one story after the other. I loved it. In fact, some of the stories mentioned here are completely new to me which enthralled me. Go and pick this up now!!

A re-telling of some classic stories. Very enjoyable read.

This book is not the Ramayana. And it is not written in the same style in which Mr. Banker wrote the Ramayana. Whereas the Ramayana flows from one book to the other in seamless perfection, this epic endeavor is written like a collection (indeed, a forest) of stories. Do not be too disheartened by that though. There is enough in this book to make for an absorbing reading experience.

This is the author’s telling of the great epic. This much he has stated in the introduction. And he has chosen to tell it via the narration of one of the characters in his tale. This has the effect of giving the re

Interesting Read!

I was introduced to the Mahabharatha epic through the evergreen Amar Chitra Katha vignettes and C Rajagopalachari's Mahabharatha. As a kid, the stories were sugar coated for my tastes and I was happy to gobble what ever was served

However this book seems to be a different version, where all the "goody goody" heavenly characters are portrayed as normal beings with all the regular misgivings any human being can have.

Truly enjoyed the parts in the book that told us the story of Parashurama and the tale of Dushyantha and Shakuntala. It was also interesting to see a lot of research. However chap

Certainly Not "Yet Another Book"

Even if you have watched, heard or read the Mahabharata many times in different forms, you will still have much more to learn and experience through this book by Ashok K. Banker.

The book elaborates many of the lesser discussed tales and mysteries of the Mahabharata in a descriptive and captivating manner. Since this is the first book in the MBA Mahabharata series and there are, apparently, 17 more in line after this, the book begins with the stories not very commonly accepted as a part of the Mahbaharata. A reader impatient to jump to the Kaurava-Pandava feud might become restless reading th

A Boring Jungle

I was totally unimpressed by Banker's earlier books on "Ramayan" and "Bhagawath". In fact I was unable to read beyond the first 100 pages on his first episode o the Ramayan. In fact the only good thing about the books were the cover artwork.
Still, I honestly believed The Forest of Stories would be different. I was totally disappointed.
The Mahabharat has been translated by many people. Even the most dry translation has life in it. But Banker's version is so dead and lifeless. How can he so effectively use English to bore and make one sleepy. In fact C Rajagopalachari's simple rendering is s
