Amazing book! Makes me want to go back to Mumbai!

  • Book: Shantaram
  • Location: Mumbai (Bombay)
  • Author: Gregory David Roberts

Review Author: Charl



Out of all the books I’ve ever read (it’s a few!) Shantaram is one I always go back to, always recommend and always think about. Without wanting to give any spoilers, it’s one of the most incredible real life story and brings India to life in such a special way. It is written so beautifully and has some of my favourite quotes from any book. An absolute must read for anyone wanting to visit Mumbai (by book or plane!).
