This is the best narrated audio book that I have listened to. The story essentially a group of short stories was always engaging bringing into harsh focus the corruption in almost every aspect of life in India. This is ofset by tales of friendship and love. All in all an excellent audio book which I will return to soon.
I have been listening to Q&A over many car journeys and I can say that I have not been so emotionally involved with a book for many years. The hardship, violence (well portrayed and never graphic) fun and sheer energy is amazing. It reduced my Partner to tears on more than one occasion. After the book we tried the film - what a dissapointment! I urge you to give this a try but, beware it sucks you in and leaves a vivid impression of one persons success against all the odds. A great story well written and read with passion and style.
