Despite some shortfalls I would recommend this book to arjna readers interested in Indian Mythology as it delivers lot of important information about Arjuna and other characters of Mahabharata. I wished if this story had been written in a narrative style with 2 or 3 main characters in line – Arjuna, Krishna and Duryodhana.
I would not recommend this book to anyone.
Drona, his guru, promises to make him the most powerful warrior on earth but when Arjuna finds Ekalavya is just as good, he is angry.
Go soak yourself in those wonderful times again — where Gods walked the earth and the best of us got a chance to wield weapons against evil and triumph against odds. Arjuna is the immortal tale of one of the India’s greatest heroes. Previous post Book Review: Her chandra,ouli is powerful and perfectly suited for this particular genre, as it encompasses the scrupulousness and finesse that befits an epic theme such as this.
Her academic credentials include a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master;s in English. She comes only in a few pages in the entire book, while the story of Karna is elaborately described in the 2nd half as if it was his story, not Arjuna’s.

Showing of 36 reviews. I somehow loved the ending a lot. Mar 25, Utkarsh rated it really liked it. Many events are revealed far ahead of their time of happening e.
The book is very lively and makes interesting reading. August 03, Its not a modern day rom com where u can work ur way out with various ideas. Loved, the way the author makes you understand where Duryodhana comes from as well, especially when in one scene Duryodhana was more likeable than Arjuna.
Karna, on the other hand, is shown as a passionate and loyal friend and a man whose generosity precedes his name.
Book Review: ‘Arjuna’ by Anuja Chandramouli
As we read the story of the warring cousins the Pandavas and the Kauravas, we also get to read many stories of many other people who are either directly or indirectly related to the cousins who fought the great war in the battlefields of Kurukshetra. In terms of narrating history and choices of sub-plots with Arjuna as focus, the book has been successful. Thanks to the wealth of literature available in Telugu on these timeless epics, i am familiar with most of the back stories of all charecters in them.
Be it his wife, brothers, Krishna, mother, etc. While there is a seamless flow to the narrative, she goes back and forth, forging connections between events, analysing their intent and clearly explaining what a particular event leads to. Large parts of the book, though well written, are just another version of the well known epic.
Roll of the Dice: D At the end I came to know arjuha many great personalities of Mahabharata and it made me think how enrapturing it would have been to witness Kurukshetra as it happened.
It was a breezy read with mostly linear narrative and occasional repetetions of the same event, which i think the editorial team should have taken better care of. Sep 13, Privy Trifles added it Shelves: Mar 08, Avanthika rated it it was chamdramouli.
I am sure had there been any other ending I would perhaps would not have liked the book this much. I liked the epic so much chandrqmouli I read an abridged Telugu version of Mahabharata when I was just a seven-year old.
So the reader has to actually remember what happened in the past to understand why a particular person is behaving in a particular way in a given situation. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A steady read, a good entertainer.
This is another of those books that stands tall on the shoulder of giants — well researched and competently delivered. It is engaging, entertaining and informative — all at the same time.
Book Review: ‘Arjuna’ by Anuja Chandramouli
We have already formed opinions about them and now all of a sudden trying to change or maybe the right word would be to make you re-look at that opinion is not an easy task. This is a task in itself as it is similar to plucking specific leaves from an extraordinarily large tree the Mahabharata and then arranging them in the order they were plucked. Vasanthi Nagaraj this book has nothing much more to offer on Arjuna apart from chandramuli Mahabharath.
The language of the ahuja is simple and does not draw away from the story.
