The Immortals of Meluha (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 250

The Immortals Of Meluha is a thrilling story about a warrior named Shiva, who is given the responsibility to protect the empire of Meluha from dangerous intruders. This mythological novel is fast-paced, and focuses on duty, love, principles and more.

Summary Of The Book

The land of Meluha is an empire created by Lord Rama, and it is ruled by the Suryavanshis. This empire is powerful and proud, however, the Saraswati river that is their source of water is slowing drying up. On top of that, the empire is at war with the Chandravanshis who have allied with The Nagas, a group of sinister and deformed human beings who have extraordinary martial art skills.

The Immortals Of Meluha, published in 2010, is the first story of the trilogy. Daksha, the king of the Suryavanshis, realizes that his empire needs help. He invites a tribe from Tibet to help him fight off the enemies. The Tibetan Guna tribe is lead by Shiva, who is a fearless soldier, and the only one who does not fall ill on arriving at Meluha. To everyone's surprise, Shiva’s throat turns blue.

The locals believe that this warrior is their fabled saviour Lord Shiva, also known as Neelkanth. Shiva goes to Devagiri to meet Daksha and his daughter Princess Sati. There, he learns about the dangerous wars and terror attacks that the Chandravanshis have carried out on the Meluhans.

The brave warrior gets enraged, and declares a full war on the enemy. Readers will find this mythological fantasy to be gripping and exciting. Questions about Shiva’s duty, destiny, and karma arise throughout the book. The author has written a book that is adventurous, mystifying, and captivating, but at the same time he also has thrown light onto the subjects of what is evil, and who is truly a hero.

This page-turner is a treat for readers who enjoy history, fantasy, and adventure. The Immortals Of Meluha received good reviews from leading newspapers, and was a bestseller within its first week of release.

Amazing Book to read , while reading it takes us with its flow , feels like its a movie. Excellenty written . This was my first book from flipkart and the delivery was quick.

Great Book on Shiva... nicely written...!!!!

Amish has done a well work on Indian Mythology. One should read this book if he\she is interested in Ancient History of India. He has done some great research on Shiva and presented here... Like "HAR HAR MAHADEV" means every one is mahadev... I read it on the go... hope you find this review helpful...

Party spoiler is here!

There are books which are written for reading and then there are books which are written for movie making. This one falls in the latter category. Reads like a movie script.

A far better work could have been written when your central character is one of the strongest characters in Hindu mythology. The author takes Lord Shiva and reduces him to the level of a hollywood movie actor or even worse.

If you think chetan bhagat deserves a man booker award then you may recommend this for a nobel in literature. Otherwise this is not a book that you will want to read a second time.

Good story poorly written

Amish Tripathi weaves a splendid but totally fictional & fantasised account of Shiva's traivails.

For the folks looking for Lord Shiva's mythologicaly accurate chronical would feel frustrated. This book is certainly not for the purists; they should explore authetic SHIVA PURAN for that goal.

This is a fabricated, but very well conceptualised story, weaving together the history(Indus Valley Civilization), geaography ( North Indian plains above the Vindhayas) & mythology; it still is a fantasy neverthless! The publishers should have added an asterix with a disclaimer somewhere, else many reade

Apart from concept, everything else is crap.

Apart from the concept, everything else is crap. According to me, the book became a best seller only because of marketing!!!
After listening to lot of praises for this book, I started reading with lot of expectation. But after a few pages, I was completely let down. There was nothing in the book till the end!! Its not the end, you need to read another book (go through another torture) to know what exactly is happening!!
The description is crap!! Especially the war. Amish has described the war in the crappiest way possible!!! The description of how the people would be at that time, the way the

Nice concept, but written in a very americanised language- full of slangs

The concept on which the story builds is very creative. But somehow the description seemed to me to be a 'khichdi' of scenes and story-lines from various movies. I could see scenes from Troy, 300 in the war descriptions. Then again Shiva is a character having self doubts very similar to Neo (Matrix) and needs Trinity (Sati) to remove them. The role of Oracle is played by the 'Vasudevas'. All in all a nice attempt but somehow I feel that management graduates in our country have too much proclivity for creatively packaging the product that they have lifted from various shelves and flourishing it

A complete let-down!

Books like these may have been inspired by books like the 'The Palace of Illusions' (which was a brilliant one). While the idea of creating a fantasy based on Indian Mythology is a brilliant and inspiring idea, 'The Immortals of Meluha' falls far short of the weakest of expectations that any reader of this genre would have! Very weak writing, and not much of creativity either. My expectations hit a reef on Page 13 and further reading did nothing to improve my opinion of this author. Definitely not a good read.

the most boring fiction i have ever read.

just dont read this book even if you get it free. sheer wastage of time. the idea
and the planning is somewhat good but the way it is written is so boring i am sure a genuine reader will through it away after a couple of pages. it seems like a class seven or eight student is asked to write an essay in english on old mythological events.pathetically written.
