Shantaram is an incredible read. The novel is written by Gregory Roberts who was a convicted Australian bank robber and heroin addict who escaped from a maximum security prison, obtains a fake passport and moves to the slums of India. There, he joins the mafia, sets up a free health clinic, falls in love, has near-death experiences and so much more. Highly recommend :)
Loved it, debating whether or not to read the sequel. Can't be as good, right?
One of my favorite books! Great Hunt Brent! Just started the next book. I'll report back!
Wow, just remembered about this book and wanted to add to my books collection. Only so few upvotes for this book? An incredible book and definitely one of the best I've ever read. The description of this one person's life and the myriad number of situations his life weaves in and out of is absolutely incredible. You almost feel like a part of his life ...
