Not sure if it is a compelling read, but certainly has insights into Life in the city of Mumbai from an individual perspective (this is a fictional form of Gregory's supposedly real life experiences).
Personally, i thought, it was leaning towards the darker sides of life - the main character is a jailbreak from an Australian prison, lands in Mumbai, peddles drugs, gun running, life in prison etc . . . and not sure how it changes the way people think of life . . .
Again, debatable point due to individual preferences, but will stop here, for even this (book review) i guess is a bit irrelevant to the forum.
It is a good book; provides insights into Mumbai - but I found it overly sentimental in parts and romanticising things unnecessarily.
a very good book,but life changing?i dont think so.
Great book and the perfect read whilst chilling out in Goa definitely buy it you wont be dissapointed (not sure about life changing mind you but a great read)
A great book read it last year while in Goa.
Have since past it on too 3 more friends who all agree it is a good read.
It certainly makes you realise we have little to complain about even with a credit crunch.
I have just been made redundant and will be out of work from 24th December but even with this to overcome it is nothing to what the poor in Mumbai have to go through.
