    Paperbackñ Shantaram MOBI ç shantaram mobile, Shantaram PDFLike Marmite or Vegemite another Australian export you either loved this book or hated it I hated it I really really hated it It was a waste of my life enduring five chapters of this egotistical drivel by someone who thought their life was 933 pages worth of importance He was an escaped convict from an Australian prison and I bet his fellow prisoners and warders must have sighed with relief to no longer be victims of this self righteous man's endless burble of cod philosophy 'deep' insights into other people and general overweening self love Of course if you are in the majority of the raters of this book you wouldn't agree with this review at all And that is why I stuck at it for so long I kept thinking all those readers those bright and entertaining reviewers out there must be able to see something I can't But whatever it was it eluded me and so with a huge sigh

    Paperbackñ Shantaram MOBI ç shantaram mobile, Shantaram PDFI managed 200 pages of this utter drivel before giving up completely Poorly written nonsense which is gathering critical acclaim from people who probably read one book a year At one point during a scene when the narrator is looking at a river he ACTUALLY writes 'I was thinking of another river A river that runs through all of us The river of the heart'I do not have time in my life for this sub Danielle Steel horseshitEDIT About ten years on I still keep getting activity on this review Reading it back now there's no denying it I sound like a total dick I didn't like the book but that's no reason to be such a pompous tool I guess I was in a bad place at the time I'll leave it up here as both historical record and a warning stuff you write when you're younger may make you cringe a decade on

    Paperbackñ Shantaram MOBI ç shantaram mobile, Shantaram PDFThere's enough reviews on this book I'm not going to summarize it again I love this book and yes it's massive but I think I've read it 3 times It's not perfect but the parts that are great make up for the wobbly bits I thought I'd throw in some of the lines I likedThe world and I are not on speaking terms Karla said to me once in those early months The world keeps trying to win me back she said but it doesn't work I guess I'm just not the forgiving typeIf you want to curdle the milk of your human kindness or turn your compassion into contempt get a job as a waitress or a cleaner The two fastest ways to develop a healthy loathing for the human race and its destiny is to serve food or clean up after it on the minimum wage I have done both jobs in those terrible days when I was forced to work for a living It was horrible I shudder now in thinking about it That's where I learned that nothing ever really

    Paperbackñ Shantaram MOBI ç shantaram mobile, Shantaram PDFThis is possibly the best book I've ever read It was given to me by a friend of mine who loved it and said that before she read it she had no desire to go to India but after having read it she couldn't wait to goThis book is over 900 pages so I found it a little challenging to start bc I didn't want to carry it around with me to read on the bus too bulky and I was so tired each night that I couldn't read than a page or two But I finally got a chance to read a small chunk of it in one sitting and that was it for me I loved it and couldn't put it downThere are a few notable things about this book One is that it's billed as a novel but I'm 90% certain that these things all actually happened to the author I think he wrote it as a novel so he could change some names and protect the innocent or guilty Another amazing thing is how well it's
