An Indian Odyssey: Book Review

It was a pleasure reading the book, An Indian Odyssey by Martin Buckley.

The book is a tale of the thoughts, the journey of the author and the story of the epic Ramayana. The author has puts his views on the spiritual plane, physical plane and also provided us the life of those yester-years, when digital media and print media has a huge competition.

He spoke of his journey to Sri Lanka and his subsequent journey to India, moving across from South to North India. I personally feel that most of the book is dedicated to his journey and his thoughts of visiting places which are, one way or the other may have been connected to the Epic Ramayana.

In the end Martin speaks about his understanding of Lord Rama and his thoughts around the same. I feel that the book is wonderfully written but at times, I had difficulty in taking my mind from one thought expressed to the other, since it’s a mix of his travel, his social life and the story Ramayana.

So, the scenes changes from one to the other.

If I have to rate the book on 10 Stars and 10 being the highest, I will give the book 7 Stars. Thanks once again.
