    1. Vamsee Juluri s Saraswati s Intelligence takes the liberty of asserting that a story is a story, no matter how entrenched it may be in a culture s mythology, and thus, open to reinterpretation.When you first hear about the book and have a peek at the cover page, you ll know that it s a book about Hanuman, judging by the picture of a brave monkey A story on Hanuman must mean the retelling of the whole Ramayana with Hanuman as Rama s faithful devotee But, no This book is different The excellent bo [...]


    2. A big thank you to the publishers of this book for sending me a giveaway copy.This is the first part of a trilogy that takes place in a time before the dawn of man , to quote the blurb The land of Kishkindha seems to consist of the whole of India as per the map shown in the book The adolescence of the well known characters from Ramayana, namely Vali, Sugreev and Hanuman, sees the signs of a grand disaster that could shatter the peace of the land living in peace for a long, long time With the gui [...]


    3. THE HANUMAN WE NEVER KNEWIn India, since childhood, the mythological stories of Mahabharata and Ramayana are ingrained in us We have grown up perceiving a certain character in a certain way, without even giving a thought on the facts and fictions Similarly, we have a traditional image of Lord Hanuman established in our minds while the author in this book Saraswati s Intelligence has attempted to portray a different picture, unconventionally.When one talks of Hanuman, we automatically relate it t [...]


    4. I m no expert in Ramayana bu I liked this fiction weaved around Hanuman, Sugreeva and Vali I look forward to the next book in series.


    5. I was actually looking forward to reading this book and hate myself for DNFing it I wouldn t say it is a bad one but just wasn t for me.It is the story of Hanuman while he is an adolescent.He is a smart boy and everyone loves him.I had a few problems with the narration Right from the beginning, there is a sense of danger in the book There is something which is not right from the beginning but it never comes around to completely unveiling itself It was fine until after some time I got annoyed at [...]


    6. Eagerly waiting for the next book of the series Author has taken great emphasis on building the characters Hanuman without adventures is impossible to imagine Prof has rightly balanced the intelligence and adventure spirit of Hanuman We get a great insights into the dharma through Q A of Hanuman and his Guru The name Saraswati s Intelligence is aptly chosen.


    7. Not badt bad at all Hanuman has always been one of my favourites and with a rich world building happening around this spirited being, the book flows easily Heavy brushes of spirituality may either appeal or tire the reader But the characters have been nicely etched and the premise has been laid for future Hanuman led awesomeness.


    8. A take on the anthropocene from the other sidePerhaps like the Kishkindans, we can all start to consider that non violent choices in every aspect of life lead us to a better solution This tale is a springboard for the imagination to conjure viable ahimsic life choices.


    9. I have always loved mythology And specially there are less books about shree hanuman in English literature Really loved it.


    10. These kind of works are called Mythological Fiction , I guess A lot of novels have been published in this genre lately Some like the Shiva Trilogyof Amish Tripathi have become very popular I haven t read them, or any other In fact, this is my very first.The story was not paced well, but there were parts that were good I really liked the description of war, especially the visualization of the creatures The depiction of Hanuman was interesting different from what was seen in some popular movies of [...]


    11. Received the book in a Giveaway RATINGS 4.5Growing up listening to stories of Hanuman and his heroics, its no wonder that we Indians jump at any and every chance of getting to know about the legendary figure And this too was no exception But what s interesting is that the author has managed to capture an image of Hanuman that is very different from what we have seen or known.A look into the mythical world, with reinvented storyline and a sense of rightness to the words that builds the story, th [...]


    12. I got the book from giveaway, in exchange for a honest review.Within the genre of Indian mythological fiction, this book serves its purpose It s fun, and it touches up on a lot of topics that would appeal to the mainstream The pace is slow in the beginning, and uneven thereafter Some concepts are interesting, but really vegetarianism I d argue that nobody was vegetarian then , but then I suppose I should accept the cosmos that the author built I liked the sense of adventure and danger, but some [...]


    13. Mr Juluri is a revered writer and book a friend recommended this book to me.First thing first, there s no doubt in writer s knowledge, and his expertise on the subject But sometimes it doesn t sync well with book writing ,and that s what I observed here Throughout the book, the reader will realize writer s prowess in Indian mythology I use mythology because its a fiction , but for me, it failed to create interest.I didn t like the portrayal of Vishwamitra s character either, it was a big let dow [...]


    14. Written mostly in un embellished English, the writer s appreciable communicative skill leads the reader gently into the theater of action Harping on the themes like truth, peace, intelligence and dharma etc Saraswati s Intelligence rightly takes one of these high powered ideas as its title, lifted from page 230 And these ideals have been epitomized in the words of Hanuman which could as well be accepted as the moral of the book, This earth has such a large heart that I cannot see the reason why [...]


    15. I got a giveaway copy of the book, so a Big Thanks to the Author, Publisher I enjoyed this book but it could have been much better The way the author imagines a different style of thinking, talking and behavior for the monkey people is interesting and refreshing The writing style is simple, easy to read, making it a fast page turner There are a lot of talks about what s right wrong, about spirituality and the discussions are well conveyed Still the plot and the adventure lacked depth, I am not s [...]


    16. Awesome book It s been really long since I read something this good.Detailed review will be published by my husband.


    17. This was a giveaway gift There have been many books in the mythological genre that have touched the lives of the epic battles, but none of that of Hanuman Before the dawn of man there was Hanuman This book draws lines between evolution and spirituality all woven into a tale of fiction and truth.Here are my favourite quotes from the book Truth, after all, was like water It stayed true only because it could bend But anyone who spoke so little had to be serious about what he was saying than he let [...]


    18. As a mythical fiction Saraswati s Intelligence portrays a new way to depict the life details of Hanuman different from the one we know from Ramayana However I didn t feel that thrill or gripping story as I had expected.


    19. It s a beautifully written ancient story of kishkindhanagari which is famous in Ramayana for Vali Vadh This is first part of trilogy Main hero of story is Hanuman in his young age who had even forgotten how to leap With his childhood innocence and leadership qualities some of them I liked most are of owing things, being responsible for the results of things which you have done having courage to have your own views and act accordingly , reader falls in love of the character Hanuman Story also int [...]


    20. a simple book to read justice done to the character of Hanuman enemies fell easily battlefield scenes, and the maps and directions could have been better a decent work enjoyable not a classic one though.


    21. I m damn sorry about the late review Honestly can t get the time with exam nearing and refreshmental tour But I managed to complete the book and boy did I love it Okay so I mma be honest I won this book through the giveaways hosted by so like yaaay But I can promise to you , this review is not influenced by the got it for free thin.So here s why I was exited for this book I ve read a lot of books centering on stuff like this but never one that made Hanuman the central character The book is not r [...]


    22. he book is a work of fiction a very interesting, fascinating re telling of a part of The Ramayan The Story fictionalized of Lord Hanuman This is the first part of a series a series which focuses on Lord Hanuman or someone so closely resembling Hanuman that there can be no doubt who the author is referring to This is an important distinction to make as I connect up in the review portion The series is around Kishkindha, the Kingdom of King Vali Bali in the real history of The Ramayan The book desc [...]


    23. I truly enjoyed Saraswati s Intelligence The Kishkindha Chronicles, 1 by Vamsee Juluri Published by Westland, it is the first of a series about the legendary Hanuman Good cover, paper, font and layout, with British spellings and sentence construction, the narration is mesmerizing, pulling the reader into that era It tells the story and exploits of Lord Hanuman during his adolescence in Kishkindha, the kingdom of his father Kesari, a land of total peace in which there is no bloodshed, no evil and [...]


    24. Historical fantasy is a historic fiction genre that weaves beautiful visuals to the story spun Prof Juluri in this work paints a beautiful picture of the life in the Ramayanic Kishkinda, the people and their politics This volume travels with Hanuman who blossoms from an active, naughty Kishkindavaasi to someone haunted by an accidental Paramadharma Apachaara breach of a code of conduct to emerging a superhero, a saviour of the civilization.The simple Paramadharma Apachaara forms the basis of thi [...]
