    • I started learning Tamil several years ago and the question that I was invariably asked was, “Why do you want to learn Tamil? What is your goal?” Well, I had to come up with something, so I said, “I want to read Ponniyin Selvan.” I have still not read it in Tamil (and I may never get there!) but thanks to the efforts of C.V. Karthik Narayan I have been able to read this in English. This truly was a labour of love for this man. This guy is an engineer with a day job, not a professional tr [...]


    • ஒரு முறை படிக்க எடுத்தால் முடிக்காமல் புத்தகத்தை மூடுவது கடினம். மிகவும் எளிய தமிழில் எழுதப்பட்ட சிறப்புமிகு புதினம்.


    • When you start a classic, you are silently praying you are not disappointed. If it is the first part of 5 part series, then it becomes tougher since it may be more of context than content. Here is a book that checks all the boxes and managed to make me steal pages over coffee breaks! Kalki's Ponniyin Selvan part 1 is a smooth and engaging read that almost inspired me to write this review in influenced tamil prose!Part 1 of this historical fiction introduces the characters and reveals strands of [...]


    • What a book!Epic.Excellent historical fiction about the beginning of Chola Empire.Very descriptive in simple English and a nearly good translation.I think everyone should read this series. Now i am going to start 2nd book.



    • Originally appearing in popular Tamil literature over a period of four years in the early fifties, Ponniyin Selvan: Fresh Floods is Part One of a Five book series that documents the early life of Rajaraja Chola (Chozha, as Kalki helps us pronounce correctly) - one of the greatest emperors of the Chozha dynasty of the South that rarely finds it's rightful presence in history syllabi of the school years. That Kalki chooses to set it through the journey of Vandhiyathevan, a warrior / messenger / qu [...]


    • ஒவ்வொரு பாத்திரத்தின் அறிமுகமும் நெஞ்சில் நிலைப்பவை. வந்தியத்தேவனின் தூது. ஆழ்வார்க்கடியானின் துடுக்கு. பழுவேட்டரையர் சூழ்ச்சி. குந்தவையின் அழகும் அறிவும். சுந்தரசோழரின் உடல்நலம். ஆ [...]


    • For a long time I was searching for a big series book to read and when I saw the translated version of this famous book which is also a famous play and had also heard good things about it, it made me more curious, so I bought a copy immediately I don’t know whether this is a fantasy or historical fiction anyway I ended up starting the series. The moment I started this book I was glued to it. This book definitely took me to another world altogether and I must say the translator has done an exce [...]


    • Probably the most celebrated Tamil Historical Fiction series ever. Kalki's Ponniyin Selvan, put very simply, is the story of the Chozha empire in its heyday and the characters (real and fictional, high-born and low) that inhabit this fascinating time in Indian history. Although I read a translation, I got a very good sense of the reading sensibilities of the 1950s Tamil public. This book which was serialized in a magazine was a huge craze and its not hard to see why. The story portrays the Golde [...]


    • This is fast-paced adventure set in 10th century AD Tamil Nadu. The book was written in 1950 and the writing style reminded me a lot of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.Also, since this is the first volume of 5, most of it has been used in setting up the story, introducing characters. There are some great twists too.


    • இதனை மிஞ்ச தமிழில் ஒரு வரலாற்று காவியம் எழுத முடியுமா ?அமரர் கல்கி ஒரு எழுத்தாளர் என்பதனை விட ஒரு மிகச்சிறந்த வரலாற்று ஆசிரியர்.Ang Lee/James Cameroon இதனை திரைப்படமாக இயக்கினால் எப்படி இருக்கும் ?


    • பகலில் பக்கம் பார்த்துப் பேச வேண்டும்; இரவில் அதுவும் பேசக்கூடாது


    • Rereading this book is like reliving a life with full of adventures. I don't hesitate to say that this is the BEST BOOK(including all the books in this series) I've ever read in my life!


    • My first tamil novel (translated),. Set in India, thousand years back during the Chola reign. Excellent !


    • பகலில் பக்கம் பார்த்து பேசு; இரவில் அதுவும் பேசாதே.


    • True WondererIts the late 10th century, our hero 'Vandiyathevan', a dashing warrior of the prestigious Vaanar clan has been given an important mission by his leader and dear friend the crown prince of the great Chola empire, Aditya Karikalan. And so, our hero departs from Kanchi towards the capital Thanjavur on his adventurous journey through the Chola empire. The story Kalki weaves is marvelous and as I have just started (one of five), I eagerly look forward to the others. An epic is not an epi [...]



    • Even translated this whole series of Ponniyan Selvan gets a 4.5 for plot, odd & diverse character development, and a sense of humor throughout! This is a -- in occidental comparison a chivalrous romance novel a la style de Dumas, but is set in the 10-11th century Southern India and has all the components of court/country intrigue, interior heart plots of vengeance and love, and lush scenery -- novel by Kalki a 20th century master of story telling & reformer of identity for Tamil Nadu &am [...]


    • I am one of the lazy kinds that doesn't take the time to rate or review stuff online. However, ponniyin selvan, being what it is made me start typing. There is a special place for this book in everyone's heart after they finish reading it. Though I read the translated version in English and though it's clear that it loses much of its original class it's hard to put this book down once you start. The plot is so awesome it's unimaginable how the great kalki interweaves authentic history with liter [...]


    • My first Tamil book after so many years For so many days, I was quite eager to know about what does Ponniyin selvan really has! Finally I got a chance to read the first volume of Ponniyin Selvan by Kalki. This book amazingly describes the kings in 10th century. I just loved this. I am struck by the imagination of kalki. Kalki's language is gorgeous when he describes about people and places. Suspense was built up slowly. Though it was slow at a few places, reading a novel in tamil itself is a ver [...]


    • I cannot read Tamil. I have seen my husband and many others enjoy Ponniyin Selvan. I saw this translation at a friend's place. She recommended it and I bought it immediately. I have owned this series for about 6 years now. I am sure I have read it at least every year. It is a 6 book series. Beautifully translated. My husband and father in law who have read both versions feel that this is comparable to the original. Ofcourse, if you can read Tamil I would highly recommend that you read the origin [...]


    • Realistic Game of thrones set in the heart land of 10th century Tamil kingdom. Written in 1950s. Thrilling plot, brilliant characters through out. Less sexual depiction (not that it is bad) but more admiration for beauty and the brain of women characters. My first Tamil novel! My love for the language is re-kindled.


    • One hell of a roller coaster rider. Amazing plot development, Old world charm. Magical yet not fantasy. Not preachy but a treasure trove of hidden lessons.This is the first Tamil book that I have read and is very easy to follow yet a very engaging plot.Listen to the audio book if you can understand Tamil but can't read the script. Must read for every one.Can't wait to get to the other volumes.


    • Beautiful story. Interesting characters. I would give 5 star to the story. For non- Tamil readers like me, this book is a boon! There were some grammatical errors and spelling mistakes which put me off. Hence the 4 star. And also, the last star is reserved for the beauty of the language which I cannot award to a translated book.


    • A Good start to a big series. Suspense was built up slowly. Though it was slow at a few places, reading a novel in tamil in itself was a very good feeling.Looking forward to reading the rest of the series


    • Read the Tamil Version of course. Beautifully described cities , deliciously detailed chola history , a set up from plot point of view and character point of view. can't wait to see what happens next!


    • A terrific romp of a story. If you've ever lived in Tamil Nadu, you should read this. A great adventure with interesting characters set amidst the grandeur of the Chola dynasty at its grandest.I need to buy the remaining books in the series.


    • Just finished the First Part in Tamil What an interesting storyline and all its characters were so intelligent for its time. Kunthavai and Nandini Characters are awesome Girl Power!


    • A fantastic book, with detailed descriptions of how the city, and people were living in the old ages.


    • ௭த்தனை முறை படித்தாலும் அலுக்காத ஒன்று. இந்த புத்தகம் விமர்சனங்களுக்கு அப்பாற்ப்பட்டது.
