I am ardent reader. Mostly I didn't write reviews of books, I read. But for this book I want to write because this tome tormented me extremely and this book tortured me to the extent that many times it brought a thought in my mind i.e'Reading is worthless'.I don't know why people are giving ...Read More

Exaggeration

After listening to the reviews and so many friends going crazy about this book, I decided to read it, and it turned out to be an exaggeration about most of the things.The writer has exaggerated about the whole story. I have no doubt the the writer has written it wonderfully however, people w...Read More

Shantaramis a book of simple foundations. It has a strong plot. In fact, there is a lot happening in the 933 odd pages. The story never lags.All the characters are so well sketched that you actually become a part of them and so are the one-liners from them.Having escaped an Australian maximu...Read More

Being a mumbai resident I always love to read books about mumbai life.

Already finished and reading second installment...Read More

Shantaram- Go for it!

A book that is unputdownable and has blown my mind?Without a second thought it would be- Gregory D Robert’s Shantaram. So what if this is nearly a 1000 page book? So what if it is too lengthy to finish? Once you start, you would not be able to put it down.This is no ordinary book. This i...Read More

Didn't Like It
Dec 09, 2014 11:32 AMRead
The New York Times nailed Shantaram when they said that it is "nothing if not entertaining." The problem is trying to find what else it is.Nine hundred pages of page-turning narrative and I wonder if I have gained anything by it.The characters lack fullness and complexity, the narrator i...Read More

Shantaram A must Read

Shantaram is a novel written by a poet who is profoundly in love with words. Divided into five parts, which are flowing into each other, like sun reflection flows on the surface of the ocean, ready to submerge in its vastnessA story defined by a nameless man who is caged in his vastness of c...Read More

Shantaram-There couldn't be another name for this.

It was about 2 years ago my friend  had strongly recommended "Shantaram", a book based on a Australian prisoner who broke the prison and sought refuge in Bombay during 1970s to me and when I found one in a book store while browsing through the books recently, I knew I would take it.It is a o...Read More

Once a thief, always a thief

A blowhard of epic proportions, is my final decision on this reporter turned criminal turned slick fantasy autobiographer who IMO has crossed yet another of his ethical lines. I've read a few books of this genre. All of them have slick agendas, mostly around controlling foreign perception of Ind...Read More

I was not sure if I was going to read this book. The first time I saw this book on stall was in New York(3 years ago in 2008) while I was waiting for my flight. I read the prelude and wanted to buy the book, but it was a hard cover and the price was sky high.2010 I bought my new kindle and e...Read More

~Simplistic brilliance reminiscent of Tolstoy~
Oct 15, 2010 05:47 PMRead

Shantaram has amassed a public appeal that has got nothing to do with the writing prowess of the author. For a product that comes under the category of “book”, this is a great disservice as the entire novel is just words and nothing else. For a...Read More

Well, I am not an avid reader of novels but since it was based on Mumbai, I couldn't resist ignoring it. It took me one month to complete this book.

For all you people who have heard this name before, read further. For all those who haven't, it is one of those rare books that have made me look at life from an entirely new perspective. Well, to have a formal introduction, 'Shantaram' is a novel or you should say an autobiography by 'Gregory D...Read More
