    Almost the same style. Completely different approach to the epic. And 1st chapter of book 2 has a major revelation that is different from the original epic.

    Hehe, i love how he mixes up the original mythology with science and a nice dollop of fiction thrown in.

    Recently read:
    • Sita - by Amish. I like the depiction of 'gods' as mortals, done quite nicely for some.
    • Harry Potter Book 1 : quite late for the party. watched the first movie when it came, didn't liked much. so skipped the book till now. got the paperback recently in some deal. Found the book quite okayish, may be I am too old for it now.
    • Sapiens - reading for last few months. I am not really finding it interesting after the 'agri revolution' chapter.

    Not sure about the age part but the books are much much better than the movies. Lots to learn about friendship and values (even in adverse situations) from the later books(book 4 onwards)
