As Diwali approaches it was great to listen to such a clear and engaging version of the Ramayana story. This audiobook is a great introduction for curious non Hindus and would be a brilliant starting point for students and teachers alike. It is very helpful to hear the names spoken rather than to only read them. Focusing on the 'human' stories rather than the fighting this narration makes the characters and their motivation seem very accessible. Bring on the Mahabharata, maybe next time you could try using sound effects too.

Just a little warning to those who have been enjoying this series, that the majority of this book takes place away from our favourite couple. Jenny Sterlin is great as ever and the story is interesting without being as engrossing as some of the others.

Although this is the shortest of the audiobooks in my library it is also my favourite. I have listened to it many, many times and can start with pleasure from any point. It is indeed a treat to hear such a talented storyteller reading his own work. However (although I'm interested in what Neil Gaiman says) I find the interview as the final chapter (12) a real drawback. It always jars and spoils the end and wakes me if I've fallen asleep. Would prefer it at the beginning, or as an optional section.
