This travelogue written by an Australian woman who lived in India from 2000-2002 was a perfect read for my recent business trip to India. The author first traveled to India as a backpacker in 1988 and hated it. She returns twelve years later to live with her finance while he's working for a broadcasting company. The book mainly covers her research of India's various religions and ethnicities while living there. I don't know that the book would be that interesting for someone who hadn't been to India or was planning a trip there. At times her descriptions of meditating and visiting various temples and ashrams bored me and I found myself skipping over sections. These sections are a lot like the India section of, "Eat, Pray, Love."
