    1. Okay why did i even start this book in the first place Because, I got a free copy of this book and the cover was so tempting that i just thought of giving it a try My Bad Usually, I refrain from reading interpretation on our great epics but i thought with a bit of open mindedness i can at least try this out as some fantasy fiction with no connection to the epic I kept reminding myself throughout that the Sita in this story is just another character and not Ramayana s Sita but i failed miserably [...]

    2. I never liked Ramayan or Ramcharitmanas The main reason being the treatment of character of Sita Though I have never read the original Ramayan , I have heard stories and read about Ramayan Almost in every story Sita s character is depicted firstly as an obedient wife who follows her perspective lacking husband Ram in my opinion is a character without his own perspective for a fourteen years exile , than a helpless kidnapped wife waiting for her husband to rescue her , then when her husband rescu [...]

    3. Not at all impressed with this story line and narration I did the mistake of re reading Scion of Ikshvaku before starting this one Half the conversations, plots , narrations are exactly the same word to word Even if I ignore the replication of scenes , narrations from Ikshvaku to Sita given that Sita is an alleged sequel I can not ignore the superficial and unintelligent character build ups and conversations I found myself holding the book and re reading few lines just to understand author s nee [...]

    4. Twisting the delicate fabric of an epic and then writing it down to suit the modern times is a tough task But Amish Tripathi has always been brilliant in this genre In his recent novel, Sita Warrior of Mithila, he has yet again given a new life and meaning to a celebrated character of Ramayana In the prequel of the book, Scion of Ikshvaku, Amish was not able to convince the audience that much Has Sita done that job Since the beginning of time, Sita has been celebrated as an ideal wife, one who f [...]

    5. What an amazing book Waited so long for this book As always book Amish s books are very interesting Book started with a suspense which will be uncovered in Raavan next book I found this book better than previous one I don t know why some readers are comparing with other version of Ramayana This book is Amish s interpretation of Ramayana The author has exemplary built the structure of linear story telling, linking incidents from the Scion of Ikshvaku , and running both the books parallel to each [...]

    6. If thinking out of box is an art, Amish is definitely Picasso of it.Entire India idolizes Sita, and women of India are reminded time and again to be pure, devoted and all suffering like Sita.Amish s sita has got an aura of self respect and confidence for herself Sita is neither a silent martyr nor she is a victim Loved the entire plot Looking forward to read about the orphan of Aryavarta.

    7. Below expectations and that s not good at all as my expectations were already low after reading the first book of the series I think the biggest drawback of this series is RAMAYANA itself No I am not criticizing Ramayana, in fact it s the exact opposite Ramayana is no doubt the most followed and most famous creation ever in INDIA but it has a definite start, certain set of characters and a definite end as well Now in my opinion these factors probably acted as the limitations for Amish, which was [...]

Check Out my Insta page, full of books, Instagram FoodieBibliophileRuns with the Speed of FGFA After the long wait of 2 years, finally yesterday, Sita Warrior Of Mithila was delivered to me at 1556 hours and I started the book in the late evening and wrapped it in a single sitting Like the spell bounded the first installment of the Ram Chandra Series, Sita Warrior of Mithila reads with the speed tantamount to any fifth generation fighter jet The depiction of a woman warrior justifies the title o [...]

    9. Too many forces are in play, forces you can t control, forces beyond your reach, the god of fire, one true God, Iraiva, the malayaputhras,vayuputhras,vaanars, kumbakarna, Raavan, ram, sita, and much the book opens with a shocking truth, new Vishnu had been chosen and it s not ram Amish is back with his second installment of Ramchandra series, sita warrior of mithila, and it is brilliant There has been many retelling of Ramayana especially sita s perspective, but all tried to make her a victim, [...]

    10. 3.5 starsBefore I start pinning down my views on this book, I would request the readers not to judge this series by what you already know from Valmiki s Ramayana This book is not a sequel to the first one Scion of Ikshvaku While the first one is entirely about Ram s origin, this focuses on Sita Amish Tripathi s book gives a new identity to Sita From a quiet and obedient character she emerges as a leader, fighter and a ruler The book unveils her origin, her relationship with her adopted parents, [...]

    11. A major letdown But the series still keeps me invested Scion of ikshvaku hit a major chord with me, a chord that stood apart from those hit by the shiva trilogy Because the philosophy had a softer, and a broader tone to it as opposed to the sharper and radical tone adopted in the shiva trilogy It was the injection of serene flow of themes than the fantasized storyline that made it satisfying So naturally I had expected of the same and much from the second book of the series All the broad phil [...]

    12. This is what happens when you write for money and without passion, and surrounded by Yes men This is a lame attempt of an age old story trying to be retold to the pop culture of today Amish trying desperately to connect to today s youth has gone way too far and stretched the story however he wants by introducing Nirbhaya case and Jalikattu into Ramayana which was unnecessary and is totally lazy on his part.Calling Hanuman as Hanu and Hans, calling Shurpanaka as shurpu, using the reference and st [...]

    13. Amish Tripathi and Ashwin Sanghi are the two guys because of whom I started reading mythological fictions big time and have actually discovered some really fantastic books Palace of Illusions and Karna s wife Shiva Trilogy from Amish was a fantastic read, no doubt, first being the best and second still was able to hold my interest unfortunately the third one didn t work wonders but when I heard him writing another couple of books on Ramayan, I was excited The prequel to this one Sita was Scion o [...]

    14. Amish has certainly redefined the way India will look at its beloved Goddess This according to me is the most fascinating and unparalleled achievement of this book.Read the detailed review here bookgeeks sita warrior

    15. 3.25 out of 5 starsI m pretty disappointed with this one so I ll keep it short It wasn t as engaging as the first book had been There were several times when entire paragraphs and scenes seemed to have been copy pasted from the first book word for word it was super annoying Around halfway through, I started skimming because otherwise, I would have taken another couple of days to get through it or have DNF d it The writing was kind of juvenile, like the first one Didn t wow me Things did pick up [...]

    16. The second instalment in Ram chandra series has sweetened plot This was a riveting read for me The potrayal of Sita as a warrior is one of the least surprise the book has to offer Eventhough the time line of this book is same as that of the first book, it was still a thrill to watch these forming a complimentary pair Thisbook was the viewpoint of sacred faminine incarnate I certainly enjoyed the hyperlink story telling technique and am transfixed at the ease with the author handles the story.I a [...]

    17. Reading the most famous stories of Hindu mythology from a female perspective can be fun, unfortunately Sita Warrior of Mithila is only the second one I have come across Palace of Illusion being the first one The writing is simple and some pages explore the theme of philosophy just like Amish s other books The story telling is better than the first book but for the obvious reason that we do not know much about Sita so every page breathes a new perspectiveHe once again devotes an entire chapter to [...]

    18. A retelling of one of the greatest Indian Epics and with a feminist spin What could go wrong I thought that too but this book failed to stir anything stronger than luke warm feelings The novel started out great and Sita s character was dealt with finesse She is portrayed as smart and skilled with weapons The ultimate heroine As the story progressed, I just lost interest with all the unnecessary explanations and sermons regarding politics The story came to a standstill and only started moving wit [...]

    19. I am utterly disappointed after reading this book There is absolutely nothing new to this book other than the first and last chapter The major twists as the author says There is a sense of Deja Vu throughout reading this book If you have read the Shiva Trilogy, Then a lot from those book has been put into this Ramchandra series And this book, You feel like you are reading the first part To get the exact sense of this, Try reading the books back to back One of the laughable things is that author [...]

    20. Quote from the Book I Liked The best laid plans always have a tendancy to get spoiled There have always been surprises Para 5 , Page 335 Stars 3.5 5 Synopsis India, 3400 BCE.India is beset with divisions, resentment and poverty The people hate their rulers They despise their corrupt and selfish elite Chaos is just one spark away Outsiders exploit these divisions Raavan, the demon king of Lanka, grows increasingly powerful, sinking his fangs deeper into the hapless Sapt Sindhu Two powerful tribes [...]

    21. Perhaps the most widespread interpretation of Ramayana today looks at the characters as ideals Protagonists are ideal whites and antagonists are ideal black Ram is an ideal son, brother, husband, king and most of all an ideal human being or God Here all the actions of the protagonists are justified explained by their divine nature.While I have nothing against this view of Ramayana, it is not the only way Another attempt looks at the characters as shades of grey, and the fact that Ramayana is muc [...]

    22. I was not much impressed with Scion Of Ikshvaku when compared to Shiva trilogy.It was because of Amish work I started to explore mythology books.Now that I have finished Sita and it was good and far way better than Scion Of Ikshvaku The book cover is indeed the best one It s of muscles rather than flesh.Well the content too went with the same sort.Women characters always takes a special top note in Amish s books.As I was aware that this is a fiction work , I was able to enjoy the characters par [...]

    23. This is the second book in the Rama Chandra series, and as the title makes it apparent, the focus is on Sita Sita s characterization as a brave princess who her guru regards as capable of being the next Vishnu is extremely good As a child, she is found abandoned, in a vulnerable position, protected by a vulture Her childhood is not trouble free but she grows up as a royal princess, with love from her adopted parents the ruler and queen of Mithila.The situation in Mithila, and indeed much of Indi [...]

    24. SHE IS THE WARRIOR WE NEEDE GODDESS WE AWAITE WILL DEFEND DHARMAE WILL PROTECT US Sita Warrior Of Mithila by Amish Tripathi is the second book of The Ram Chandra Series It is a fiction mythology book It was published on 29th May 2017 by the Westland Ltd The cover page of the book is very beautiful designed by Sideways having an image of Devi Sita in action holding a stick and attacking someone The colours orange and yellow are very amazingly used, making the cover look very nice and attractive.S [...]

    25. As a nation, we don t hold our superstars responsible or accountable for their craft Movie stars, politicians, cricketers name your hero and see how much you have allowed him or her to get away with What is specifically of import here is his her complete dismissal of his her audience s intelligence Amish Tripathi one of our literary superstars is just as fortunate if not I am but one individual and probably not even the demographic that Amish caters to But the power of expression can t call it [...]

    26. Well Well A long wait indeed and I Pre ordered this book for two reasons Reason One I thought Amish would have done enough research because of the 2 damn years Duh and the Reason two being its Sita and in his Shiva Trilogy he kept Parvathy in a high pedestal and the character was narrated in a much better way I really felt the narrative style to be way too sloppy with this book Initially, I admired this guy for bringing in a perspective for the so called Indian way of life to Mythologies but he [...]

    27. 2.5 Stars I have expected that I d read a better book than the Book 1 Scion of Ikshvaku in Rama Chandra series or at least a good one, but this one turned out to be the just okay good type Except for a few very few segments, Amish couldn t deliver a proper book.There was no emotional feel to it as the first book had The Characters, dialogues, seemed rushed and incomplete and at times repeated But the discussion b w Ram Sita, Sita Bharat for a better society and the way it can be done, the passio [...]

    28. Amish has always related the subject of mythology with reason, science and logic He captures the journey of a common man or woman to the zenith of greatness of a God Goddess Ramayana is one such epic which has been interpreted and displayed in variety of ways since my childhood and it continues to be but never had I saw Sita beyond her veil of beauty, poise and her loyalty towards her husband but this book takes you through the making of Sita as a warrior and an able leader It unleashes the capa [...]

    29. As the book title suggest it s about Sita The new surprising thing in this book is ram as well as Sita are appointed as Vishnu by Vasistha and Vishwamitra respectively for making India a better place There are too many secrets in this book which are yet to be revealed The books main focus is on three characters in the whole story ram, Sita and Ravan remaining all are supporting character overall it s a Goodread
