Good Retelling and Narration

This is my second time reading this great religious epic of India. Several years ago, I read Krishna Dharma's version, but I like this version by Egenes & Reddy better. The language is contemporary, yet lyrical, and the narrative is highly readable, yet maintains the profundity of its allegorical and spiritual meanings.

Gupta has a rich and melodious voice, although it can be monotonous at times. She could be more emotive, and create more distinction between different character's voices. But overall, I liked her narration.
