If I could give this book 3.5 stars I would.
This book was good. I did enjoy it. There were so many great quotes in there and topics to think about it was very mentally stimulating. But it was a massive book. And for probably the first half of it I loved it. They way he descriped India and its hidden beauty underneath all the negatives was truly great. I now appreciate India so much more than I did.
However, towards the end it just got a bit too much. I know this is supposed to be a true story but it felt a bit like an action movie towards the end. I got over it a bit during the war section. It was dragging out a bit too much and it became unrealistic. I do see why some say they couldn't read it because of the writers ego, which is very large, but I think to survive what he has you do need more than average confidence.
If you have a lot of time on your hands and in the mood for some adventure than this is your book.
