There are twists and turns that one can't see coming, unless one is learned on these subjects. I loved the way Amish built up the story to reach the crescendo. And the way he achieved it! There are parts that will make you immensely sad, and parts that will break your heart and Amish provides no palliative care for the injuries, but I think he had no choice there.
The story had to proceed the way it did. The book is perfumed with war, death and hope. And a lot of knowledge! In conclusion, I'll recommend this book for all the Indians who believe, or not in Lord Shiva for this is a fiction that will render a magical faith in your new favorite hero! I enjoyed reading this book, and I think everyone else will too! Mar 15, Richa Sharma rated it it was amazing. In all amish is an avid bhakt and at the end of the day i have turned into an avid bhakt..

The description Amish wrote of every incident makes you feel that it is all real. All the relation , connections and events all of them. These three sets of books has totally impressed me. Good Job Amish. Mar 14, Poonam rated it it was ok. This book was an annoying conclusion to a series that started with wonderful promise.
It was very overwritten, so much that it missed the biggest strength of the first book in series. That strength, according to me, a fast moving story. A story - not its writing style not its dialog nor words chosen to tell the story since they were often cheesy, and at times cringe-worthy, sometimes picked up straight from yuppies' conference rooms. Story and a curiosity what was coming next is what got me go This book was an annoying conclusion to a series that started with wonderful promise.
Story and a curiosity what was coming next is what got me going in the first place. True it was story was of mythology of Shiva, Sati, Bhadra, Nandi and encompassed the geographies that we only heard about in history books kept it interesting. But, it was the story that held the book together. Third book has no simplicity of the first book that just focuses on telling a story.
At pages at least pages more thicker than previous books , Amish has wasted no opportunity to 'enlighten' us readers - nuclear fission, nuclear fusion, their impacts, the yugas treta, dwapar etc , age of Brahmin, Kshatriya etc etc.
Descriptions of temple and battle formations - the one mentioned in the first book and one the movie so famously portrayed - became much bigger and all this information overload, often obstructing the flow of story. All these descriptions - an overt attempt to be visual - made people say 'it was written with movie deal in mind'.
I wasn't completely convinced, I felt I was missing something. And then it came to me - maybe the writer thought his book could one day be textbooks in school - considering what a source of knowledge that it is. Believe me, this book, does fit in to some curricula where kids study it just to pass through exams. Oh wait, but that can't happen yet, at least not in this decade since the Shiva in this book curses so often. I am still not sure which oath of Vayuputras did the title of the book indicate to.

For me, there were a few aspects of the first 2 which made it the must-reads. It took a not so often spoken about mythological story, made it into a fantasy fiction and cleverly interspersed with today's world without confusing you. It was fast paced and Finished one of the most awaited sequels of a book. It was fast paced and kept you on the edge throughout.
There was an element of suspense upto the end which you had to know. And this is where the 3rd one failed. This book had too much today: Even though its fiction, the reader still need to connect to the mythical world and feel that you are within that. Amish takes the reader out of it too often and too directly which makes you come out of the world and get disinterested too many times. The book broke the suspense far early and just made it into a war strategy book.
That just killed the mood. The book is long. With the suspense already gone, you just wanna get it to end. The twists intorduced in between were not enough to keep up the interest.. The book was all about war strategy and preparation and in the end, I am not flling up the blanks here for those who have not yet read it.

I died laughing when I read the following paragraph: In a pure nuclear fusion weapon, two paramanoos , the smallest stable divisions of matter , are fused together to release tremendous destructive energy.
In a nuclear fission weapon, anoos , atomic particles , are broken down to release paramanoos , and this is also a A decent novel and a good enough series. In a nuclear fission weapon, anoos , atomic particles , are broken down to release paramanoos , and this is also accompanied by a demonic release of devastating energy. They are not the smallest stable division of matter. Free electrons and protons exist. And most of the time in fusion more than two atoms are fused together. But it gets even more ridiculous.
NOT atomic particles. So, when molecules anoos are broken down to release atoms paramanoos , it's a chemical process, not nuclear fission. In actual nuclear fission, atoms paramanoos are broken down to release smaller atoms and atomic particles eg neutrons.
Either nuclear physics worked differently in ancient times or the author didn't do his research. I believe it to be the latter case. View all 4 comments. Mar 01, Gomati rated it really liked it.
Amish has maintained the flow.. Fantastically written and wonderfully woven with facts and myths that difficult not to appreciate it. What I most enjoyed were the discussions between Lord Gopal and Shiva. They were very simple yet held a lot of meaning. The discourses were logical and rational. The introduction of the Vayuputras and their connection to the story is so beautifully done. The whole scene looks so real Amish has maintained the flow.. The whole scene looks so real and plausible.
Evil has been explained in such a novel manner that it did not look scary or overwhelming, just something too obvious which no one noticed. Am in awe of Sati.. Daksha is the perfect caricature of the present day rulers.. Loved the book. Loved the narration. Oct 19, Vivek rated it did not like it. This was probably the most awaited book for me and expectations were really really high.
However the book turned out to be a major disappointment. While the first two books of the triology were indeed examples of creative best and became a part of my all time favorite collection, third book fell completely flat.
The author constantly emphasized that book covers the event that made shiva - Mahadev - The God of Gods? And what he did to achieve this title? Proved all those who called him "fraud" and "not ready" right. And Why? Because of a personal grief. And not in a spur moment of anger. But preparation took its time.
How was mahadev more stronger and better than the simpleton lady who decided to bear his anger for no fault of her, Or from Parvateshwar or from Kartik? Are we trying to justify and make is sound more realistic his action because he was in grief. This is good more a lesser mortals. But Mahadev's actions is supposed to be a legacy for the future in author's word.
With great power comes great responsibility. And what was his legacy? Kill humanity for none of its fault? Fail those who explicitly trusted you vasudeva and vayuputra?
Act like those blinded with rage and constantly commit mistake like Kali? No I guess Shiva's real legacy is as a person who swallows poison for the good of mankind. And that is what made him God of Gods.
Shiva destroyed Tripur which was an icon of evil and not a platform full of innocents people waiting for execution. Ok Let us leave the lesson apart and come to execution? It leaves a lot of question unanswered. Why was Gopal the chief of Vasudev's? He showed no wisdom of other Vasudev's we have seen in the previous two books.
No guidelines. Rather he just followed the advises of likes of Tara and failed to stop Mahadev from its crime.
Why was this book called The Oath of Vayuputura? Why should a committee who is supposed to protect a society be at a distance of 6 months from it? Mithara was supposed to be one without family. But what about current Mithra? For which qualities the tribes of Nilkantha was headed by Veerbhadra? Because he was Shiva's friend or because he was individually capable like Gopal and Mithara?
Or Shiva realized by seeing Gopal and Mithara you need not have any qualification to be the keeper of Mahadev's tribe? Shiva blindly trusted Brihaspati's version He was supposed to deduce himself. He just made a guess about Amrit when he realized coin turning. But Foundation of his belief was the research of Brihaspati and reconfirmation by Vasudev? So where does his genius comes?
He meets Vasudev Chief who will follow him only because Shiva reached his own conclusion How? Parvateshwar decided to change sides. He expects Shiva will permit him. After all he is Mahadev. What he does? Keeps him in prison till Sati offers her wisdom. However, towards the end of this book, it appears, he felt the compulsion to relate it with events of Purana and religion and went on to suggest how and why Kartik became a war lord, 51 shakti-peeth and the list goes on.
Unfortunately in order to build a bridge between imagination and known events, the story went neither this way nor that way. I waited for it for a long time Dec 29, Ashish Iyer rated it really liked it Shelves: The final instalment of the Shiva trilogy consumed me completely and invoked a profusion of emotions within.
The first two volumes of Amish were testament enough for his writing prowess but he yet again proves his sheer writing brilliance in his third part of the trilogy. What really stands out is the seamless flow of the story line with all the characters whose prominance and dedication to a cause be it for or against the Neelkanth is loveable.
The sheer expectation of reaching the end of this The final instalment of the Shiva trilogy consumed me completely and invoked a profusion of emotions within. The sheer expectation of reaching the end of this epic masterpiece kept me on the edge and motivated to read till the last word. And the unexpected turn of events in the end left me speechless. Shiva, the destroyer of evil, finally has arrived at the conclusion and is on a mission to destroy what he believes is true evil.
He needs the support of the Vayuputras but the tribe does not recognise him as their chosen Neelkanth. In spite of a strong support system including his wife Sati, sons Ganesh and Kartik along with his most ardent followers, he may not succeed without the backing of this tribe chosen by Lord Rudra. And when Shiva is on the verge of victory, he comes face to face with a tragedy leaving his existence, his very soul completely shattered.
Clearly, Amish has written these books with pure devotion and passion. Words fail me when I even attempt to describe this trilogy. I am grateful for the day I decided to read it. It has left me with more devotion, respect and adoration not only for the Mahadev but also for Lady Sati, Ganesh and Kartik. Om Namah Shivaay! Mar 01, Dileep rated it liked it.
Well, let me say I have mixed emotions. It starts with a roar and ends on a whimper. Clearly the character such as shiva deserved a better ending than the one he received.
Some imaginations and conclusions were logical and brilliant, but overall I felt it was a neat endeavor which got a little ruffled towards the end. Keep your mind and heart open when you open the book. And control the sigh as you close it. Feb 26, Ravi Jain rated it really liked it Shelves: But was a good overall read. The war strategies were brilliant. But the ending was very bad. Should have made the ending at par.
Seems like Amish was in a hurry to finish up the book.
03 The Oath Of The Vayuputras Amish Tripathi Evil Alive
Mar 07, WordsBeyondBorders rated it it was ok. At the very beginning of 'The Oath of the Vayuputras' , Amish raises a very pertinent question of what is the tipping point when good becomes evil and vice versa and how does one come to a conclusion about it.
In a brave move, Amish shows his most important card right the beginning i. The Somras is supposed to have such bad side effects on people consuming them that Shiva has to stop its production and the novel is about whether he succeeds in it. The powers high up are willing to consider the side effects of the Somras as collateral damage as long as it benefits them and this begs the question of how much power the state can wield in deciding what is good for it's people and that too in a sneaky manner by withholding information from the people and thereby depriving them of an opportunity to make a considered choice of what is good for them.
I find it relevant in this age of Nuclear power, it's potential to cause disaster to the very people whom it is supposed to help improve their lives and how the state uses the media and other resources to drum up support for it's actions while discrediting those who oppose it by any means like branding them as traitors, having hidden agendas etc. All these happen right the beginning and one sits back in anticipation of how this is going to progress.
But this intriguing set up devolves into a meandering read for most of the remaining part, with a rousing finale but the ultimate result is an underwhelming novel which promises much but doesn't deliver it.
There are two reasons for this and they are linked too. But here the mystery is shown in the very beginning and hence Amish has to bank on his narrative force which lets the novel down. Like for instance the battle scenes, which are supposed to be between forces of huge size hundreds of thousands literally and the fact that the whole of India though the blurb and the book states that India is at war, actually its only the Northern part, as the South is pretty much ignored as usual, more on that later is at war.
There is a tackiness in how the battles scenes are staged and we never get a sense that such a huge battle is in progress, rather it looks more like a skirmish between 2 small groups than a war that is ravaging India. Even the revelations that Amish throws up are like "duh, okay". This was the worst cop out done by Amish in the novel. Amish's persistence with duality continues in this novel too.
But the Vayuputras are so under represented in the novel that one wonders why the novel was titled 'The Oath Of the Vayuputras'. In the case of those who oppose Shiva, he doesn't paint them as all black. This doesn't make their actions correct, but credit to Amish for not giving one dimensional characters always. These are some the better parts of the novel.
At the half way point most characters are introduced and established, so even that relief is lost to the reader in the second part of the novel. Other than the narrative, another problem I had with the novel was the ideas Amish postulates in it. After Dan Brown, it has become a fad in the novels about ancient times to glorify their advancements to the point of incredulity. If you are a Tolkien or even J.
K Rowling, it is very clear that a completely new world is being created from ground up, there is always a sense of disassociation in the reader and the authors as Gods can let their imagination run amok.
My grouse on this may seem to be overreacting, Amish may not have seen it like this and he was probably following a template established by Dan Brown, but this book and series could be used by right wing nuts as some kind of propaganda for 'Bharat'.
It's not as far fetched as it seems. Lets take the geography covered in the novel and the references to various gods. In a novel which is supposed to be about India as a whole there is very little reference to the southern part. Ganesha is referred to as someone who was venerated all over India. I am neither a historian nor a mythographer , but even from the little I have read these statements by Amish are indicative of the tendency maybe subconsciously to group India as a monolithic whole, where everything started from a single point and progressed to the other parts of the country, with no regard for the culture of those parts.
That's why Shiva has been revealed as a native of India. And the cult of Ganesha gained favor only after Tilak. There's even a mention of Hindu monks who settled in Lhasa Tibet and that the Tibetans helped them protect their secrets. I was reminded of 'The Return Of The Aryans' which postulated that the Aryans migrated from India, conquered the world and came back again, the implication being that we Indians were the birthplace of pretty much everything good.
To Amish's credit he also shows the other side of the life in that period, but fringe lunatics have a way of assimilating only what is useful to them, conveniently ignoring the other things. Towards the last part there is a set piece action involving Sati in single combat and the novel picks up again at this point.
This single combat is more hard hitting, violent, with in your face brutality and the battles described earlier. Not just that, the emotional quotient of the novel too is elevated several notches at this point and never lets up till the end which is moving. But it comes too late to entirely salvage the novel. Amish has made an ambitious attempt in this finale not just in length of the novel but in the content too and though he doesn't succeed totally, its good to see him not take the easy way out and try to push himself, results notwithstanding.
With the success of his novels, books on Ancient India have become a cash cow and there seems to be no end to authors milking it dry. Amish himself refers to 'Mahabharata' at the end stating that he may write about it too someday. Amish should be praised for being the trendsetter in this genre in India but it's still a long way till we get a novel of the likes of 'The Historian'. Apr 11, Shreya rated it it was ok.
That is what you have done with your final book,Mr Tripathi. I read the trilogy back to back in a span of four days,needless to say how glued I was after immortals.
But i have one earnest question for you.. I mean if Shiva had to use to pashupatiastra,then why take the pains of the first 40 chapters,slashing,routing,scarring and eventually 'ayurvatisng' every character possible? Yes,it was true love,it was vengeance,you couldn't possibly have m Massacre.
Yes,it was true love,it was vengeance,you couldn't possibly have made Neelkanth more humane,so what was the point of 'honour' and righteousness thrown at our face in case of parvateswar's release? The story was an unnecessary drag,describing 'Jam' and 'Elam' served no purpose! Sati has to die,but why on earth by an insignificant egyptian who walks in a few chapters ago,hardly occupies a few lines,and voila!
Im sorry,in fact you managed to maim her even! The first two books were really good,and hats off to you for making Indian mythology this interesting and this detailed.
But alas. The clues of vasudevs were outrageously direct,even a reader could infer,where the mahadev frowned. THAT flat?? Lastly,the oath of the vayuputras was to safeguard the laws of Lord Rudra,in raising the next mahadev. It would have been great had you explained what this oath had to do with your storyline,to have commanded to be the title of the book. The entire book seemed to have been written for foreign readers,with extreme care taken to describe,even the meaning of baba.

The Oath of the Vayuputras (Shiva Trilogy, #3) by Amish Tripathi
The Evil, which has been constantly talked about in the first two books of the trilogy gets finally revealed in The Oath Of The Vayuputras in the first 50 pages of the book when Shiva meets Brihaspati in the Naga Capital, Panchvati. Shiva gathers his forces, Battles are fought, allies are formed and also Vayuputras come into the picture. I started a love towards ganesh in the second book! Karthick overtook that in this one! Amish has excelled in this department and has made the war on evil the highlight of this book.
Ohm Namah Shivaiy! Har Har Mahadev! Feb 22, Pooja rated it did not like it. This book was highly disappointing. The first and second books were much better.
A lot of things were over-explained and repeated a bunch of times. All the deceptions and war strategies of both sides were explained very plainly leaving no element of surprise. Shiva's attitude on learning the truth about Brahaspati, Parvateshwara's decision, and a death, were very unreasonable.
The character of Kartik developed in this book and frankly, him and Sati's fight with a group of assassins were the only This book was highly disappointing. The character of Kartik developed in this book and frankly, him and Sati's fight with a group of assassins were the only good parts. The only evil you see in the entire trilogy now.. People getting angry and overreacting and making bad decisions is tiring to read after having done that in 2 books already.
Feb 26, Alen Joy rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Oath of the Vayuputras.. An epic conclusion The only and major con of this novel is over explanations some chapters made me think that I'm reading my 5th standard Biology text book, and Amish continued this over explanation till the end. In my view he can simply end that novel with 50 chapters if he try to avoid the over explanations. Otherwise this book is a good example of brilliant hist The Oath of the Vayuputras..
Otherwise this book is a good example of brilliant historical fiction I really enjoyed The Oath of the Vayuputras sometimes its make me laugh, sometimes its make me angry and sometimes its make me weep.. View all 8 comments.
