KimErikson Posted November 1, 2013 Report Share Posted November 1, 2013 We all have that unforgettable book, one you just can´t wait to get back to, and when it´s finished we feel lost! Mine, although I have a few, has to be `Shantaram`, by Gregory David Roberts. It is set in the Bombay underworld in the 80´s and goes from one unbelievable event to the next. The whole time you are reading it, it feels like it is the true, detailed story of the author´s life, and I think it IS largely based on events that took place, but some are just so hectic and crazy that you just can´t believe it. The author has become somewhat of an icon and ended up marrying a princess. He made Leopold´s cafe in Bombay world famous too, and no trip to the city is complete without curiosity getting the better of you to have a glimpse into the place where it all took place. Have you read Shantaram or any other unforgettable book? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
