Always nice when an author turns up in your store to buy a copy of his book for someone, and you ambush him to sign another copy for yourself!
Evocative Escapism... Literally. Shantaram was, for me, one of those rare books that held the power of true transportation - and for that reason, I will always love and remember my (vicarious) adventures in Gangland India... The tales of Lin (Gregory David Roberts) are by his accounts, entirely...
Shantaram is easily one of the most beautifully written books, ever.
This had an average rating of 4.22 with over 45000 readers, so had been top of my shelf for a while. Really, I couldn't put it down. One of my all-time favorites.
