5 must read Mythological books

1. Shiva Trilogy :

Shiva Trilogy is one of the best selling novels of not only in India but outside too.The Immortals of Meluha is the first novel of the Shiva trilogy series by Amish Tripathi. The story is set in the land of Meluha and starts with the arrival of the Shiva. The Meluhans believe that Shiva is their fabled saviour Neelkanth. Shiva decides to help the Meluhans in their war against the Chandravanshis, who had joined forces with a cursed Nagas; however, during his journey and the fight that ensues, Shiva learns how his choices actually reflect who he aspires to be and how they lead to dire consequences. Following this, The Secret of Nagas and The Oath of Vayuputras, made it to the Trilogy.

2. The Lightning Thief :

If you prefer your mythology with more of a modern YA vibe, then Rick Riordan is the obvious choice. The Lightning Thief is the first book in the percy Jackson series, which follows a young demigod as he grapples with growing up, being the son of Poseidon, etc. It’s a witty update of ancient deities and unspeakable monsters duking it out in the real world.

3. Power Of the Myth :

If you’re a world mythology kind of person, intrigued by the psychology behind storytelling, then you need to meet Joseph Campbell. The Power of Myth makes ancient mythology relevant to our modern day existence. The Kennedy assassination, the Sumerian goddess Inanna, Han Solo—it’s all related, and it’s all endlessly fascinating.

4. The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt :

There have been a few major spending movies about Egyptian folklore as of late, and they’ve been… not as much as precise (throwing old Egyptians with lily white performing artists, for instance). The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt is a significantly more interesting, firm take a gander at Egyptian folklore, written in present day dialect. It’s ideal for tossing at film officials’ heads, as well, on the off chance that you find the opportunity.

5. Devlok with Devdutt Pattanaik :

This is not a typical novel but worth a shot if you are into Hindu Mythology.If you believe in scientific facts then this is the book for you. This book consist the conversation between the host and Mr. Pattanaik in the famous season of Devlok on the Epic Channel.
