    1. Beautiful artwork but story not so much yes admittedly Sita's story is being told over and over again and you cannot actually change the story to make it interesting but you can definitely turn it towards a little more detailed or enhanced rather than the robotic and brief version usually told to the children.I felt the narration and story needed more elements to it. The story was monotone and brief to actually enjoy but yes was a pretty good attempt. Anybody who is not aware of the story of Sit [...]


    2. Graphics - 4/5Story - 1/5Really pretty pictures. That's the only positive thing that I can come up with this pulpy, bollywoody treatment of the story of Ramayana. Firstly the title is all wrong, it should have been called 'Rama's Sita' because for a story that boasts of being told from Sita's perspective, there is actually very little of that. Most of it is about Rama and how he feels and how and why does everything. Also, given that it was supposed to be written from a women's perspective, the [...]


    3. The most familiar story of Ramayana in graphic novel format. I wouldn't call the script extraordinary. It was just true to the original epic. It chronicled the life of Sita. I wouldn't go so far as to say that this novel gave me an insight into Sita's character. Nothing of that sort. One would enjoy this novel as one would enjoy vanilla ice cream - not exotic but comfortably nice. The illustrations on the other hand were brilliant. I loved the intimate scenes and the eye contact these star-struc [...]


    4. Reason for Reading: I love mythology and I love graphic novels. Hindu mythology is new to me.This is a graphic retelling of the "Ramayana", which from my best research I gather is an epic poetic text that is vital to Hinduism. Thus being epic, it is very detailed and a complicated story involving all sorts of adventures and crises, telling the story of the life of Rama, part god, part human and heir of the kingdom and that of his wife Sita, adopted daughter of a king but real daughter of a godde [...]


    5. Sita: The daughter of The Earth. Firstly, I want to say, I’m glad that I’ve read Indian mythology stories in a Graphic Novel form. What I liked about this GN,Illustration is wonderfully done = 4/5 Storytelling through illustration is nicely portrait = 4/5Writing is also great, Author has written scenes in a ways as she should’ve to explain. Very well done. What I dislike about this GN,mere one thing dissatisfied me is character‘s face. It’s keep changing throughout story. At the very b [...]


    6. The art is wonderful, and it seems like most of the dialogue was directly from the translations of Valmiki Ramayana and from C. Rajagopalachari's Ramayana. It's not really written from Sita's perspective- it would be more accurate to say that this was what Rama/any onlooker imagined Sita was saying/feeling. It would function as the Ramayana itself in the form of a graphic novel; calling it Sita's story is a little misleading.


    7. The cover and artwork are beautiful.One thing I found disappointing about the story--we are told that Sita is a brilliant scholar, but we are not shown any evidence of it. She spends the whole book thinking about Rama and her in-laws; it would have been nice to see some more of her other thoughts.



    8. One of the many stories of the RAMAYAMA, one of India's great epics. It's told from Sita's POV. She is a daughter of Bhudevi, the Earth Goddess, and she is a living of exemplar of dharma (everything that is just). Rama and Sita are obsessed with doing everything correctly by the Law (only one part of dharma). This attention to correct living gives Rama a rather inflexible attitude in places; he's not Krishna, who'll remind the world that sometimes to defend dharma one must forget it. Rama can ne [...]


    9. Absolutely beautiful art. The art alone would have earned this four stars. The story was a little truncated - I assume there is more to it than that - but since I previously had no idea what the Ramayana was or what it was about, I appreciated the abundance of explanatory captions and boxes. I still wouldn't say that I know much about Hindu mythology, but it does seem to me that poor Sita really got kind of a rough deal. Her function seemed to be either sidekick or mom, and all her beauty ever g [...]


    10. The book has some of the most beautiful art but even that fails as the faces of different characters seem same and there is no consistency with the faces from panel to panel. The story is not enjoyable if one knows about Ramayana as it's wrong on many of the legends and misses out on many important plot development. Considering it try's to sum such a epic in just 90 odd pages is a commendable effort. Still i did enjoy reading the last page on how Ramayana is interpreted in different country's an [...]


    11. I would have this book more than 5stars if it was an option. This is one of the most beautiful stories that I have ever herd. I am really glad that this company is butting all of the great stories and legends to comic form they are stories that I think need to be told. I have never heated of Sita before but now after this graphic novel I want to learn more not only about her but about all of the other legends that are surrounding this culture.


    12. The high mark is mostly for the incredibly beautiful art. Sadly, it's cluttered with too many expository textboxes. Even so, I don't know if this abridged Sita focused version of the Ramayana would make sense to someone not previously familiar with this Hindu, North Indian version. I'd be curious to know what people new to the tale thought?


    13. This graphic novel is almost like a companion to the movie 'Sita Sings the Blues'. But of course this book goes into far more history about her and her family and origins. The artwork is beautiful, and it is very well written.It is a small part of the Ramayana telling her story as the wife of Rama- her troubles and trials.


    14. My 7yo declared this a wonderful book, beautiful, and very sweet. She had tears in her eyes when it was over and commanded me to read it, too. She was right. It's a great graphic novel and it is perfect for introducing kids to the Ramayana.


    15. The artwork and coloring is gorgeous. The story telling method, however, is a little too heavy on the exposition. Otherwise it's an interesting retelling of the Ramayana mythology told from Sita's point of view.





    16. Stupendous graphics and designs, although the story wasn't really impressive it would be great for a first timer.I read it on my iPad but I reckon that it must be better on a hard copy.
