The Immortals of Meluha is a political commentary with messages for our world and a hope that since they flow from the. Mahadev himself, they will find greater. Tripathi, Amish - Immortals of Meluha (, westland).epub Tripathi, Amish - The Oath of The Vayuputras ( ).epub.
Don't even get me started on the contrivances in this book. Apparently, it was all planned from the beginning that Shiva was going to be the Neelkanth. His Uncle had given him some drink when Shiva was a kid which Shiva conveniently remembered just now that would ensure that his throat would turn blue when he drank the Somras, which would happen only if he drank it at the right time Was his uncle psychic?
The good thing is, Amish has Shiva think like the readers and question the credibility of this whole shebang. The bad thing is, Amish tries to explain it away with a feeble "everything happened exactly the way it should because the universe conspired it so". Let's talk about Kartik, Shiva and Sati's son, a bit here.
In this book, we find him as a superior warrior, defeating even the likes of Ganesh; leading vicious, bloody battles ending in victories; preaching and counseling even wise men like Maharishi Brighu.
Which should sound perfectly fine - history is rife with brave, wise men like this. My problem? He has King Daksha and his Meluhan soldiers remain in Devagiri, while getting most civilians, including Brahmins who were involved in making the Somras, safe out of the city. He then sets a nuclear weapon on Devagiri and annihilates the entire place.
Let me get this straight.
Amish Tripathi [ Shiva 03] The Oath Of The Vayuputras (epub)
The end. For those who have read and loved the first 2 books, this book would not change much. But yes, it surely leaves one wanting for something far better than what has been dished to us.

Within the first pages, I was haunted by the feeling that Amish Tripathi probably had the following written on a post-it that he stuck prominently to his screen when writing this book: Since you promised a trilogy, discovering that there is enough material for a fourth book is a no Within the first pages, I was haunted by the feeling that Amish Tripathi probably had the following written on a post-it that he stuck prominently to his screen when writing this book: Since you promised a trilogy, discovering that there is enough material for a fourth book is a no-no!
I think the author prioritized 1 so much, that he traded off some of the other priorities, with the end-result being that the book ended up a little flatter than the first two, and the overall effect was just a little disappointing.
Part of the disappointment for me, is due to my background as a science fiction fan. The distinction between quality sci-fi and pulp sci-fi is the plausibility of the fantastic science described in various situations. I appreciate Amish Tripathi 's commitment towards rationalizing the fantastic, but to the average scientific, some of the scientific stuff is even more far-fetched and implausible than the super-hero stuff he seeks to avoid at all costs.
My thoughts exactly Some stories, or sub-stories - if there is such a thing, have a life of their own, and tend to hijack the plot if you succumb to the temptation of letting them take themselves to a "logical end".
A good example of how this can be handled, is The Lord of the Rings , where the author simply reduces the character-count to a much more manageable list. The Dune series also suffered from the same over-characterization that this book suffers from, with similar results. There were brilliant moments in the story, moments where I felt the pace was as gripping as in the previous books, and these parts hold the book together for the sometimes heavy pages.
But the ratio of "number of pages read per brilliant moment", is simply lower as compared to the previous two books. This is probably an example of the predecessors leaving too high a bar for the last instalment to leap over! All in all, this will go down as one of the best book series I have consumed, and I look forward to reading the three books back-to-back. I look forward to what Amish will come up with next, considering the clear hint he drops about the "Mahabaratha".

03 The Oath Of The Vayuputras Amish Tripathi Evil Alive
Mar 01, Amit Shetty rated it really liked it. A satisfying ending to a great saga Let me be honest. When I heard that Amish was writing his third and final novel to the Shiva Trilogy, I was kinda relieved.
Thinking that we would finally get some closure to Shiva's life, I greedily picked up the book and went through with it.
Now as I have turned the final page of India's most successful series in recent times, I sincerely wish it had gone on just a bit longer. The first pages or so were quite boring and honest to God, I was planning to A satisfying ending to a great saga Let me be honest. The first pages or so were quite boring and honest to God, I was planning to shut this book and place it in an already overcrowded bookshelf in a section I have called I wish I hadn't.
Had this been a single book with no books before or after it, I would have done so without a second thought. But, due to the fun I had reading the previous novels, I knew I just had to get through with it, just hoping for the best. And so, I went on. And, I haven't regretted doing so one bit, the story actually picked up, the moment I thought it had become bland and I was hooked.
Saying any further will only act as a spoiler since there are a lot of twists and turns each linked to each other in some way or another.
Amish has definitely done a great job bringing closure to all the major characters in the trilogy. Couldn't have asked for anything less or anything more. I would definitely love for Amish to continue writing such novels and entertaining us all the more. Amish, Best of Luck in advance for your future works, if any. For the Indian reader, you can grab this book from Flipkart at a discounted rate of Rs.
Mar 03, peachygirl rated it liked it Shelves: Was it really written by the same Amish who wrote the Immortals of Meluha? The second book was bit of a let down, but I had high expectations from the final book of the Shiva trilogy.
The only part that moved me was Shiva grieving for Sati. The story had so much potential. Wish Amish hadn't strayed from the original plot. View 1 comment. Apr 27, Manu rated it did not like it. It was never the literary genius of the author that made me continue reading the trilogy after The Immortals of Meh.
Like I'd mentioned in my review of the book, I thought there was some imagination at work. The trend continued in The Secret Nag yes, I'm irritated enough to play with the titles and there was some effort in polishing the language.
All of this meant that Book 3 had to be read, but what a horror it turned "Lord Ram, have mercy! All of this meant that Book 3 had to be read, but what a horror it turned out to be!
That damn phrase I quoted in the beginning has appeared so many times in this book that it must have easily hiked the page count by at least 20! It is one of the many torture devices the author has skilfully used. It also partially explains why this book is about pages when the earlier two gave up in their attempts to touch Partially, because the rest is accounted for by Amish attempting to take himself seriously as a literary figure.
Nothing else can explain the deluge of prose that fills the book. It easily lives up to the 'Vayu' in the title - full of gas! In the non-existent plot, Shiva does his version of Around the Sub-Continent in 80 days but finds time to romance his wife and exhort his sons with phrases like "Give them hell".
Oh yes, I have used exact words! If that weren't enough, most of the book is devoted to intricate war strategy that caused me to think whether Amish wants to be given military command in real life! I do think that's less dangerous than what he's doing now! In the last few pages of the book, Amish applies his final torture mechanism - making an attempt to retrofit his mythology with history - not just Indian, but Tibetan as well.
The Dalai Lama would stop reincarnating if he read this section! The strengths if any of the first two books were the plot and the pace of the narrative. Both of them apparently died an untimely death at the end of book 2. What makes me truly afraid is the possibility that this will be a reference point for Hindu mythology fiction in say, another 15 years! That's very scary! As per Amish, true evil creeps up on us slowly. Sometimes, it's in the form of books! Nov 14, Harish Challapalli rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Author was successful in blending his fiction with the mythology.
All the characters were narrated with a great precision and the sub plots, though a fictitious work, were very close to the actual legend. This requires a thorough research and extreme intelligence to present together.
Speaking about this concluding book, Amish was successful in deciphering all the loose ends and leaving so "The oath of the vayuputras" can be termed as the best and the most probable conclusion for this epic series. Speaking about this concluding book, Amish was successful in deciphering all the loose ends and leaving some to the imagination of the reader. Certain chapters in the book suddenly make your eyes go wide and say "Wooow!! The pace of the narration will make your eyes and fingers run across the pages and u never know where u landed but still connected with the plot.
The description of a few places and action sequences will be beyond any reader's wild imaginations. There were times when I felt "is this what I know or is it the author's version", but still it didn't stop me from going ahead. Every single chapter grabs your attention and every single page makes your eyes glued to itself. I am completely satisfied with the way things went and no complaints. Shiva trilogy can be named as the best literature ever, modern India has witnessed.
Amish must be a very brave and a genius person for choosing a mythological fiction for his work. Amish jii, u wrote an epic.
Hence I have no qualms to rate Shiva Trilogy equally competent or slightly higher than "Lord of The Rings" trilogy and "Harry Potter" in terms of almost everything. View all 11 comments. Mar 07, Garima rated it did not like it Shelves: Time and Money vacuum. View all 10 comments. Mar 13, Arpita rated it it was ok. I read all the three books back to back. Though I liked the first two books very much specially IOM, my expectations really grew many folds for the third one.
By the time I reached page no 91 chapter 7 I closed the book and regretting that I ever started reading it. What a waste. The destroyer of evil became the destroyer everything else. Basically a promising hero becomes a zero. I can still forgive the author for not being able to deliver a quality read in the final book which was promised in earlier two books, but please somebody please make him to rewrite the chapters 46 to 53 and erase the chapter 54 completely, that was a horrible, lame, sad and uninspiring portrayal of a hero of that stature.
The narrative of events and specially the surroundings sometime are too lengthy and boring. The direct usage of the terminologies such as oxygen, antioxidant etc.
He should have used some similar references from Sanskrit pran-vayu for oxygen, antah-upayachak for antioxidant etc. Mar 02, Pri rated it liked it Shelves: The two books were really wonderful. The part I loved the most was the love between Sati and Shiva. There were many questions that was left unanswered. Kartik is 6 years old, but he acts older. There's no explanation for his behavior. The ending of the 2nd book hinted that Shiva's uncle was a Vayuputra, but that connection was not explored till almost the ending of the book.
The Vayuputras were supposed to be aiding the Mahadev but they never contacted him view spoiler [ Mithra just gave Shiva the Pasupatiastra.
Bhoomidevi's identity was not revealed. Logic of Parvateshwar, he says that he fights for Meluha, but by opposing Shiva is he not indirectly harming Meluha. If Shiva had lost, then Meluha would have been doomed. Vasudev Gopal just followed what others said. I thought he was supposed to be guiding Shiva. In the series it is mentioned that Lord Rudra had lion like features, but there is no explanation for it.
Lord Rudra was born near Pariha so he couldn't have been a Naga. I had a problem with the ending. I felt bad because I knew there was not going to be a Parvathy present to comfort Shiva. I was shocked when Shiva used the daivi astra. I believed that he was going to forgive the Meluhans. I also hated Parvateshwar and Anandmayi dying. Shiva forgave Maharishi Brighu at the end as Shiva believes that Bhrigu was not the cause of Sati's death, whereas he was the cause that started the war in the first place.
I was so annoyed at this.!
I hate the characters of Daksha and Bhrigu. Veerini should have stood up for her daughters. The author has hinted at the end of the book, that he might write a book on Mahabharath.
I'm looking forward to it. View all 21 comments. Thrilling , tragic and heart-breaking are the three key-words that sum up my review even before it starts. His writing style has been abysmally poor in the first two books, but he picks up the art by this book.
Yet, his lack of ability to smooth out his story stays visible. He struggles to describe the events as they happen in a better format than what he'd used in the past pages.

Hi Thrilling , tragic and heart-breaking are the three key-words that sum up my review even before it starts. His introduction to characters is still blunt and the way they behave is easily predictable. The story, though, as always, is brilliant. There are twists and turns that one can't see coming, unless one is learned on these subjects.
I loved the way Amish built up the story to reach the crescendo. And the way he achieved it! There are parts that will make you immensely sad, and parts that will break your heart and Amish provides no palliative care for the injuries, but I think he had no choice there. The story had to proceed the way it did. The book is perfumed with war, death and hope. And a lot of knowledge!
In conclusion, I'll recommend this book for all the Indians who believe, or not in Lord Shiva for this is a fiction that will render a magical faith in your new favorite hero! I enjoyed reading this book, and I think everyone else will too!

The description Amish wrote of every incident makes you feel that it is all real. All the relation , connections and events all of them. These three sets of books has totally impressed me. Good Job Amish. Mar 14, Poonam rated it it was ok. This book was an annoying conclusion to a series that started with wonderful promise.
It was very overwritten, so much that it missed the biggest strength of the first book in series. That strength, according to me, a fast moving story.
A story - not its writing style not its dialog nor words chosen to tell the story since they were often cheesy, and at times cringe-worthy, sometimes picked up straight from yuppies' conference rooms. Story and a curiosity what was coming next is what got me go This book was an annoying conclusion to a series that started with wonderful promise. Story and a curiosity what was coming next is what got me going in the first place.
True it was story was of mythology of Shiva, Sati, Bhadra, Nandi and encompassed the geographies that we only heard about in history books kept it interesting. But, it was the story that held the book together. Third book has no simplicity of the first book that just focuses on telling a story.
At pages at least pages more thicker than previous books , Amish has wasted no opportunity to 'enlighten' us readers - nuclear fission, nuclear fusion, their impacts, the yugas treta, dwapar etc , age of Brahmin, Kshatriya etc etc.
Descriptions of temple and battle formations - the one mentioned in the first book and one the movie so famously portrayed - became much bigger and all this information overload, often obstructing the flow of story.
All these descriptions - an overt attempt to be visual - made people say 'it was written with movie deal in mind'. I wasn't completely convinced, I felt I was missing something. And then it came to me - maybe the writer thought his book could one day be textbooks in school - considering what a source of knowledge that it is. Believe me, this book, does fit in to some curricula where kids study it just to pass through exams. Oh wait, but that can't happen yet, at least not in this decade since the Shiva in this book curses so often.
I am still not sure which oath of Vayuputras did the title of the book indicate to. View all 14 comments. Mar 02, Dilip rated it liked it.
Finished one of the most awaited sequels of a book. But, as a standalone book, I think Vayuputras couldnot reach the benchmark set by the earlier books.
For me, there were a few aspects of the first 2 which made it the must-reads. It took a not so often spoken about mythological story, made it into a fantasy fiction and cleverly interspersed with today's world without confusing you. It was fast paced and Finished one of the most awaited sequels of a book.
It was fast paced and kept you on the edge throughout. There was an element of suspense upto the end which you had to know. And this is where the 3rd one failed. This book had too much today: Even though its fiction, the reader still need to connect to the mythical world and feel that you are within that. Amish takes the reader out of it too often and too directly which makes you come out of the world and get disinterested too many times.
The book broke the suspense far early and just made it into a war strategy book. That just killed the mood. The book is long. With the suspense already gone, you just wanna get it to end. The twists intorduced in between were not enough to keep up the interest..
The book was all about war strategy and preparation and in the end, I am not flling up the blanks here for those who have not yet read it. View all 5 comments. Apr 06, Janakee rated it liked it Shelves: A decent novel and a good enough series.
I died laughing when I read the following paragraph: In a pure nuclear fusion weapon, two paramanoos , the smallest stable divisions of matter , are fused together to release tremendous destructive energy. In a nuclear fission weapon, anoos , atomic particles , are broken down to release paramanoos , and this is also a A decent novel and a good enough series.
In a nuclear fission weapon, anoos , atomic particles , are broken down to release paramanoos , and this is also accompanied by a demonic release of devastating energy. They are not the smallest stable division of matter.
Free electrons and protons exist. And most of the time in fusion more than two atoms are fused together. But it gets even more ridiculous. NOT atomic particles.
So, when molecules anoos are broken down to release atoms paramanoos , it's a chemical process, not nuclear fission. In actual nuclear fission, atoms paramanoos are broken down to release smaller atoms and atomic particles eg neutrons. Either nuclear physics worked differently in ancient times or the author didn't do his research. I believe it to be the latter case. View all 4 comments. Mar 01, Gomati rated it really liked it. Amish has maintained the flow..
Fantastically written and wonderfully woven with facts and myths that difficult not to appreciate it. What I most enjoyed were the discussions between Lord Gopal and Shiva. They were very simple yet held a lot of meaning.
The discourses were logical and rational.
The introduction of the Vayuputras and their connection to the story is so beautifully done. The whole scene looks so real Amish has maintained the flow.. The whole scene looks so real and plausible. Evil has been explained in such a novel manner that it did not look scary or overwhelming, just something too obvious which no one noticed.
Am in awe of Sati.. Daksha is the perfect caricature of the present day rulers.. Loved the book. Loved the narration. Oct 19, Vivek rated it did not like it. This was probably the most awaited book for me and expectations were really really high. However the book turned out to be a major disappointment. While the first two books of the triology were indeed examples of creative best and became a part of my all time favorite collection, third book fell completely flat.
The author constantly emphasized that book covers the event that made shiva - Mahadev - The God of Gods? And what he did to achieve this title? Proved all those who called him "fraud" and "not ready" right. And Why? Because of a personal grief. And not in a spur moment of anger.
But preparation took its time. How was mahadev more stronger and better than the simpleton lady who decided to bear his anger for no fault of her, Or from Parvateshwar or from Kartik? Are we trying to justify and make is sound more realistic his action because he was in grief. This is good more a lesser mortals. But Mahadev's actions is supposed to be a legacy for the future in author's word. With great power comes great responsibility. And what was his legacy? Kill humanity for none of its fault?
Fail those who explicitly trusted you vasudeva and vayuputra? Act like those blinded with rage and constantly commit mistake like Kali?
No I guess Shiva's real legacy is as a person who swallows poison for the good of mankind. And that is what made him God of Gods. Shiva destroyed Tripur which was an icon of evil and not a platform full of innocents people waiting for execution. Ok Let us leave the lesson apart and come to execution? It leaves a lot of question unanswered. Why was Gopal the chief of Vasudev's? He showed no wisdom of other Vasudev's we have seen in the previous two books.
No guidelines. Rather he just followed the advises of likes of Tara and failed to stop Mahadev from its crime. Why was this book called The Oath of Vayuputura? Why should a committee who is supposed to protect a society be at a distance of 6 months from it?
Mithara was supposed to be one without family. But what about current Mithra? For which qualities the tribes of Nilkantha was headed by Veerbhadra? Because he was Shiva's friend or because he was individually capable like Gopal and Mithara? Or Shiva realized by seeing Gopal and Mithara you need not have any qualification to be the keeper of Mahadev's tribe? Shiva blindly trusted Brihaspati's version He was supposed to deduce himself.
He just made a guess about Amrit when he realized coin turning. But Foundation of his belief was the research of Brihaspati and reconfirmation by Vasudev? So where does his genius comes? He meets Vasudev Chief who will follow him only because Shiva reached his own conclusion How? Parvateshwar decided to change sides. He expects Shiva will permit him. After all he is Mahadev. What he does? Keeps him in prison till Sati offers her wisdom. However, towards the end of this book, it appears, he felt the compulsion to relate it with events of Purana and religion and went on to suggest how and why Kartik became a war lord, 51 shakti-peeth and the list goes on.
Unfortunately in order to build a bridge between imagination and known events, the story went neither this way nor that way. I waited for it for a long time Apr 24, Anish Kohli rated it really liked it.
