Shantaram – Gregory David Roberts.
I read Shantaram while on holiday in Pune, and I travelled through Mumbai. Maharashtra, I love you! At that time I needed to escape into someone else’s life and that of Gregory David Roberts was to be it. And what a fascinating life. Adventure, love and philosophy rolled into one. When I was reading it it became like a preacher’s bible, to delve into and receive passages of enlightenment. It soothed and comforted me and reminded me of what is important in life.
