Where does Kama vs. Yama rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I am a fan of Devdutt Pattanaik's books in general (the audiobook recording of Jaya: Mahabharata for example is fantastic), and this children's book conveys the same fun, intelligent, and very informative spirit of his other books. The audio performance is also very good: the reader does different voices for the different characters (a little girl, Kama the god of love and Yama the god of death but actually the god of Dharma, duty).
What did you like best about this story?
Pattanaik weaves so many different Indian myths and folktales into this short little book. These are stories that would appeal to anyone!
Which scene was your favorite?
My favorite is the story of the children who do nothing except what they are told! (Yes, as you can imagine, the parents end up being not very happy about that at all.)
Any additional comments?
Adult readers will enjoy this book as audio. For young readers, it would be important to get a printed copy of the book with the illustrations to help the children follow along while they listen to the book. I have a printed copy of the book, and the illustrations (by the author) are delightful.
