Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts This is the book I'm reading. I chose it because a friend recommended it to me. It took me six months to start reading it because it is 900 pages long- I've never read such a big book! But it is actually wonderful. So far the main character has escaped from jail, traveled to India, worked for a gang, learned three new languages, worked as a doctor in a slum, fallen in love, and is now fighting a holy war in Afghanistan. Makes my life seem pretty boring!

Betsy | 1 comments I made it half of the way through Shantaram. I am ashamed to say I got bored and stopped reading. Then I had to leave Paris and I didn't want to carry that giant book home so I gave it to one of my students.
