The Immortals of Meluha (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.168

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.

Awesome book and other top books

There are few authors in India who write exceptionally well. Amish is one of those. I am a vivid reader and read almost all the books that come my way. This stands fifth.

1. Corporate Chanakya
2. That's the way we met - Sudeep Nagarkar
3. How I braved Any Aunty - Varun Aggarwal
4. The Backbenchers - Siddharth Oberoi
5. The immortals of Melhua- Amish Tripathi

Just an average Fiction

I borrowed and read this book from my friend who bought this from flipkart.

Actually I am a follower (I believe) of Lord Shiva and not the man Shiva (The fiction Character Mentioned Here).

Some Twisted Facts.
1.How come Lord Ganesh is Nor Lord Shivas son (In the story he is the son of sati's first husband).
2.Lord Ram Married Sita by breaking Lord Shivas bow(Here Lord Shiva appears after lord ram).
3.And Lord Shiva and Lord Rudra are not two different persons who lived at different times they are the same person.

3.And Lord Shiva and Lord Rudra are not two different persons who lived at different times they are the same person.
4.I did not see the the nagas (Serpents and not the nagas mentioned in the book) which is constant companion of Lord Shiva.
5.The middle eye of Shiva is also missing...

And most of the people would give him positive reviews due to
1.They consider this as just a fiction book (Like harry potter)
2.They don't know the true story of Lord Shiva.

I don't care who gives negative rating to my review but truth is truth.
This book is just a time pass read and one time read only......

READ THIS BOOK ONLY FOR TIME PASS JUST LIKE ANY OTHER BOOK

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 they live, everything is crap!! He himself lacks the imagination. What can a reader imagine while reading it!
While writing a story which has taken place in a completely different time, the author should explain about the people of that time. He has to create the scene for the reader. Here Amish has done nothing like that! His descriptions are vague. You just cannot imagine the place the way he is described!!
If you don't like all descriptions, and just like the story, then you might like the book. Many of my friends are not at all bothered about the description. They just told, those things are boring!! So if you are that kind of person, then you might like this book.

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.

Blasphemous Crap

Well, I am not much into review writing but after reading this book, I deemed it right to write the review for this blasphemous piece of crap.

Just after reading few chapters of the book, I felt like I am reading the story of a "Masala" or 'Mass' movie with the character of the Hero played by 'Shiva', the leading lady by Sati and all others fitting into somewhere in the plot (And heck, there are cheap humor too in the whole tale!)

The author have no idea on how he had tried to blaspheme the name of The Nataraj, the Shakti of the universe with his cheap character building, who falls for pretty women, use cool words (as per today's genre of writing) like 'Bastards', smokes weed with his friends and one who blurts out bawdy jokes! And to my disbelief, he has portrayed several of the other characters of the Hindu Purana as people with deformities (Goddess Kali, Ganesh) or twisted the characters so much, which is so inappropriate - as an example Krishna as a Pandit of a temple (!).

Apart from the Character building, the historical and factual knowledge of the author is very shallow and he twists the facts suitable for his plot. The writing style and the literary usage is too poor to even read by a novice reader.

I found all the three books of the author a waste of time, money and the twisted facts presented in his books as blasphemy at its best. Ignore the Marketing gimmicks (you will find ads of the trilogy in every book shops and online portals) and Avoid it for the best. Try Devdutt Pattnaik's books instead if you are looking for a light Mythological read.
