Shantaram is narrated by Lin, an escaped convict with a false passport who flees maximum-security prison in Australia for the teeming streets of a city where he can disappear. Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend Prabaker, the two enter Bombay's hidden society of beggars and gangsters, prostitutes and holy men, soldiers and actors, and Indians and exiles from other countries, who seek in this remarkable place what they cannot find elsewhere.

The Journey Home is an unprecedented combination of a nonfiction life account with an award winning soundtrack that tells the story of the author's own transformational healing journey. It takes the listener on a fascinating journey from a life of material wealth and the pursuit of pleasure through near-destitution as it chronicles a plethora of jaw-dropping external exploits and fascinating inner experiences with twists and turns that ultimately reveal his natural healing gifts and true purpose, Oneness, and the reason for our suffering.

The fact that the author was pure of heart enough, to not only write his story, but read it to us was a gift to the quality of the book.

The raw internal struggle and the outlets that he chose to take to unburden himself, while creating new plyth, is a very real battle faced by so many.

Being able to share such intimacy along with music and the constant of love from his children was beautiful

May his journey continue and the light be bright

the story was good but written for the audience that has never read a bdsm book and wants a very timid unoffending glimpse into it.
No real passion or submission is conveyed through the narrative.
Not bad but wasn't a book that I just couldn't put down.

Battered, barefoot, and huddled under a bookstore awning in the pouring rain, Blue only knows one thing. After 15 months of captivity, finally she is free. Self-made millionaires JD and Ark are not out to save anyone when they stumble upon a wet and shivering girl one early Sunday morning. But when you sell sex for a living and salvation rings your bell, you answer the call. After years of searching, love lifts the veil of darkness, and three people - with three very big secrets - find themselves bound together.
