Item description for Deepak Chopra Presents India Authentic Volume 2 (India Authentic) by Saurav Mohapatra...
Witness the gruesome demise of a demon lord that bred pure hatred for the world. Follow in the footsteps of Yama, Lord of Death, as he takes you to the netherworld.

Reviews - What do customers think about Deepak Chopra Presents India Authentic Volume 2 (India Authentic)?
Not worth buying Jun 20, 2008
I bought this title after I had read the thoroughly enjoyed Volume #1 of the series. This collection was, in a word, disappointment. The weakest link in the book is the writing. The stories are NOWHERE "Authentic" (Parashurama stopping his carnage after coming abreast a child?? Looks like a 'politically-correct' mashup for the non-Indian audience) as claimed, but at least the first volume had a brilliant and imaginative script. Here, the writers seems to have lost steam after being overtly creative for the first round.
My second peeve is with the artwork. The artwork just does not measure up to the first volume. Period. Nothing more to say.
I would recommend that readers first look through the issue in the libraries and then decide if they want to buy.

Even though i thought the first issue was so much better, i still enjoyed reading about Pashuram and Garuda. Its a great issue to read for fun and even great for kids, so theyre not stuck in front of the tv rotting away their brains. If you bought the first and was so blown away, like I was.. just letting you know you might now find this one as amazing but finish reading it because its a bit lengthier in story material but i think its worth the purchase and to be added to your comic/book collection, this is an awesome choice to go with.
Liked this one... but prefered the first :) May 22, 2008
More mythological stories of Indian Gods. I like the idea of being able to learn from the indian mythology in this format, and the stories chosen are nice. Anyway, I much prefered the first one INDIAN AUTHENTIC, because the pace and feeling of the comic book was more beautiful and more beautifully written. In this comic book I enjoyed the story of Parashuram, because I loved how it was told (very much like the pace and feeling of the first INDIAN AUTHENTIC), and the definition of what a monster is and how it is made.
