Shantaram: Must Read
This epic and mesmerising novel by David Roberts, cannot be described in words. Set in the world of contemporary Bombay, the story is narrated by Lin, an escaped convict from Australia. His Indian guide as well as himself enter a hidden society in India with beggars, gangsters and holy men.
India is shown from another picture, with the story being partly romantic partly thrilling and most of all teaching.
