The first novel I have read in ages where I can honestly say I read every word; no skimming over paragraphs. Also loved how each chapter was ended; almost, but not quite like a novel ending. I look forward to a great discussion at my next book club meeting.
Roberts creates Lin, an intelligent and clever character - right from the first page. Lin (name on counterfeit passport) has just escaped from an Australian prison and is on the run.
Lin learns several of the local languages, well enough to fit in with his new neighbors. Language is not perfectly translatable though - as he finds out by experiencing Bear Hugs.
At one time, Lin describes himself as interested in everything. Lin's curiosity immerses him in wild adventures.
To me, Shantaram is a love story. Love of India and it's people and learning to love oneself. Accepting responsibility for horrible, stupid mistakes and believing in Hope - Forgiveness - Possibility.
Roberts is so talented. Each page was filled with life. I felt like I was in the scene, observing everything.
I feel like much of it is a memoir, although in a YouTube interview, Roberts denies it.
I plan to reread Shantaram many times.
Aahhh, India. What a broad tapestry to paint on.
