Shantaram

Nominiert: Commonwealth Writers' Prize Best First Book 2004

'A literary masterpiece . . . at once erudite and intimate, reflective and funny . . . it has the grit and pace of a thriller' Daily Telegraph

A novel of high adventure, great storytelling and moral purpose, based on an extraordinary true story of eight years in the Bombay underworld.

'In the early 80s, Gregory David Roberts, an armed robber and heroin addict, escaped from an Australian prison to India, where he lived in a Bombay slum. There, he established a free health clinic and also joined the mafia, working as a money launderer, forger and street soldier. He found time to learn Hindi and Marathi, fall in love, and spend time being worked over in an Indian jail. Then, in case anyone thought he was slacking, he acted in Bollywood and fought with the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan . . . Amazingly, Roberts wrote Shantaram three times after prison guards trashed the first two versions. It's a profound tribute to his willpower . . . At once a high-kicking, eye-gouging adventure, a love saga and a savage yet tenderly lyrical fugitive vision.' Time Out

Ein wirklich spannendes und tolles Buch, mitreisend und alles hat er wirklich selbst erlebt! Muss man gelesen haben, insbesondere wenn man schon einmal in Indien gewesen ist...aber auch sonst.

It's been a long time since you read an novel that rocked your world? That shows you things you don't even imagine on this planet? Well this is the right choice! This book takes you to India but unlike other novels you can actually feel, smell and learn the philosophy in India. A book that makes you laugh and cry the same time but also makes you think about a thing or two. I really enjoyed this masterpiece!
