When I first heard the narrators voice I was a little hesitant to get this book, but the price sold me in the end. As a Bharatanatyam dancer I really enjoy researching and listening/reading the various translations of the old stories from India. I found this one was quite nice to listen to either at work or in the car because of the narrator. His voice has definitely grown on me and in fact I'm re-listening to it right now.
I would definitely recommend it to people who listen to various translations of these tales because as I always find that they change every time. The best example is the Ramayana, it is what people want you to get out of the story.

Any additional comments?
I wanted an introduction to Hindu mythology, and this book appeared to be it. However, after further research, some of the stories as told here are incorrect. Its entertaining, but you cant just alter an ancient sacred text to make it say what you want for dramatic effect. Now I dont know which stories are accurate or not without checking against the original text, so there really was no point in buying this book in the first place.
