Excellent shortened version of The Ramayana, good for students and those interested in non-western mythology!

This is an epic poem I had to read for a college class. While the story is decent, this is a shortened prose version. A lot of the story only skims the surface- sometimes the editor will cut into the flow and paraphrase the rest to keep it moving. A good read if you want a general story of Rama- but it's better to seek out a less abridged edition. It's worth it for the full effect.
