3.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking, but flawed
Amish is one of the rare self-published authors - like Amanda Hocking and E.L. James - who made it big before selling their books to a legacy publisher. When Jo Fletcher announced she'd picked up the rights for the Shiva trilogy, my interest was immediately piqued by its subject matter. I love retellings of myths and legends and origin stories and here was a whole new...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great take on the character of Shiva, 30 April 2013
By 
Kay (Rochester, UK) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved the refreshing fantasy take on Shiva mythology and the subtle comic quotes every now and then making it seem almost like a typical everyday bunch of people just talking to each other. The references and relations to important historic and mythological Hindu storylines and locales make it an even more exciting read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, interesting and very imaginative, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Immortals of Meluha is a very interesting and imaginative book. It tells the story of Shiva and by reading it, you are closest to Shiva ever. It's certainly a page turner. One of the few books I have finished in no time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Work, 22 Feb 2013

This review is from: The Immortals of Meluha (The Shiva Trilogy) (Paperback)
I have read both the parts and found both of them really interesting...
the story , the connection established between our present rituals and customs with the past in the book is really thought provoking..
At some time one may feel that it has been over done but still it will keep you engaged to continue reading...
Great work and eagerly waiting the 3rd part "the oath of the vayuputras "..

3.0 out of 5 stars Meluha, 14 Dec 2013
Written from modern prospective it reads well however for those who have read the older version of books on shiva would not be happy to read description of shiva in this book.
An interesting read though

3.0 out of 5 stars Neither magic nor realistic, 13 Mar 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having a real moral behind the legends is an old idea and has been done well, but not here. I found Meluha very improbable, much too modern and too advanced for an era we know quite well from archaeology. This is the Indus Valley Civilisation but not as it was, and everything seems to happen too neatly.

Resembled 1930s US Science Fiction in a lot of ways. I started off hopeful but I'm not bothering with any more.
