I just finished this book and I had to write a review to warn you. I listen to over 40 books a year and this by far is the sadest, most tragic book I have listed to in 6 years. They don't get any grimmer. By the way the writing is good and John Lee is superb.
You learn much about Indira Gandhi government and her policies in mid '70's but GEEE BABA, it is such a downer. Had I known, I would have never touched it.
This book makes Kite Runner and a Thousand Splendid Suns look like comedies. (great books by the way)
You want an uplifting book listen to "Brother Fish"
You want a great book about India, you must listen to "Shantram"
Other good books:
"Pillars of the Earth"
"The Company: A Novel about CIA"
