Don't delay! Download this book right away. I kept passing over this book for one reason or another, and finally decided to use a credit and listen. I wish I had done it sooner. This is added to my all time favorites list.
I have already recommended this book to several friends who I know LOVE a good story. This isn't a clean or neat story, just like life it is messy and scary and happy and good. Pulitzer Prize winner for a reason
Nothing! Excellent narration, the switch in character's voices was masterful.
Highly recommend. I'm always on the lookout for a good book and often feel a little sad when I finish one. This is one of those books.
Have you ever read a book that continues in your thoughts even when not reading it or when it's over? This is that book. I am so engrossed in thoughts about this book. I have never been to India physically, but after reading Shanatram, I feel I've been there in spirit. The author has a tremendous ability to describe the 'behind the scenes' view of Bombay/Mumbai. The characters are rich and complex.
Prabaker. After reading, you'll understand. The brilliance of his innocense and simplicity.
All scenes that took place at Lin's home in the slums.
Simply - I didn't want it to end.
addicting, enveloping, entertaining
This narrator was awesome. He brought each and every character to life. His ability to change voice for different characters was genius. His adaptation for age, sex, race, accent - fantastic.
suspend disbelief, you're about to fall in love with the past....
Even though I was born in 1974, this book made me feel as if I lived in 1959 - 1963. Somehow I miss that simpler time?!? He is a masterful author. This book is truly a gem.
The story was so-so. The narrator was great. A really fantastic voice brought to the main character Ridley. Just sort of a cheesy romance novel mixed with a little thriller and intrigue. Somewhat simple plot line. I give it a C+. I wish I'd rented from the library rather than pay for it.
I hope not. I LOVE a good thriller. Purchased after I read the critics reviews. Not always helpfull.
All - she is an excellent narrator!!
I sort of just wanted to get to the end. It was easy to see how the story would unfold. No specific emotion - frustration?!?
