Thoughts on Amish Tripathi Books
The beauty of Amish Tripathi books is it gives the mythical characters a life. He convinces his readers that these characters are not mere imagination but they are a whole living being with flesh and bones like you and me.
Simplification of mythology is the differentiating factor for Amish Tripathi books. The intertwining of the Vedic story and the author’s imagination makes his books more intriguing to the audience. Though sometimes, connecting to the character named and set in the similar scenario as of the epics, might be a task for readers.
