The Third Eye
I've always liked Indian mythology though I can't say that I know a lot of them. Just what I've learned in high school when I had to take World Religion (religion is sort of a requirement in Catholic high schools). Anyways, going into this story, I have to admit that it felt a little foreign to me but when the different gods came up, I was more familiar with the stories. I thought that this story was a great new myth and the cultural references in it makes it a great read. It also emphasizes the importance of courage, growth and righteousness. It is a story of a young girl's fight for survival when she's already lost so much. It's her self-growth and independence as she learns to overcome her struggles and become who she can be without relying on others. At the end, there is a sort of indication that the evil is not vanquished.. but then there's always that balance in the world.. with good, there is evil. As much as I found all these aspects a great thing for a story... I have to admit that the story took a little struggle to get through. I'm not entirely sure what it is. The writing was detailed, descriptive, yet easy to read. The content is filled with inspiration and a great adventure. But whether I would recommend it to others? Maybe to those interested in Indian mythology. For the general population of reader? Well, I guess it's up to you to decide for yourself.
