Thanks for the heads up, Gillybaba. I'm heading on over to check it out.

You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Yes thank you for this, gilly.

I've just started to read Shantaram again...first time I gave up on it, just couldn't get into it at all, but strangely it seems to be pulling me in this time and I'm enjoying it more. I hope to persevere and finish it this time. I've even bought a CD of Indian music today to listen to while I read!

Jackslady, you can check out our previous discussion. One of the helpful suggestions was to write down the characters names as they are first introduced. There are a lot of folks thrown at you in the beginning and that helped me a lot. Let us know how you liked it! :cool:

Wow! What a ride!

Thanks for this, DITHOT! I will revisit the Shantaram discussions after Christmas when I have more time. I think perhaps it was the length and complexity of the book that put me off the first time, but I'm persevering now and starting to enjoy it.

Glad to hear it. I think the discussion will help. It certainly enhanced my understanding as our Noodlemantras always do!
