Beschreibung

'A literary masterpiece . . . at once erudite and intimate, reflective and funny . . . it has the grit and pace of a thriller' Daily Telegraph

A novel of high adventure, great storytelling and moral purpose, based on an extraordinary true story of eight years in the Bombay underworld.

'In the early 80s, Gregory David Roberts, an armed robber and heroin addict, escaped from an Australian prison to India, where he lived in a Bombay slum. There, he established a free health clinic and also joined the mafia, working as a money launderer, forger and street soldier. He found time to learn Hindi and Marathi, fall in love, and spend time being worked over in an Indian jail. Then, in case anyone thought he was slacking, he acted in Bollywood and fought with the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan . . . Amazingly, Roberts wrote Shantaram three times after prison guards trashed the first two versions. It's a profound tribute to his willpower . . . At once a high-kicking, eye-gouging adventure, a love saga and a savage yet tenderly lyrical fugitive vision.' Time Out

A class of its own
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Uetikon am See am 24.07.2020

I've already read this book about ten years ago, now I thought it's time to read it again. It's just every bit as good as I remember it. Its mixture of adventure and crime is absolutely gripping and the surprisingly profound bits of wisdom offered are never tacky or superficial. It feels very real and raw and is one of the most ... I've already read this book about ten years ago, now I thought it's time to read it again. It's just every bit as good as I remember it. Its mixture of adventure and crime is absolutely gripping and the surprisingly profound bits of wisdom offered are never tacky or superficial. It feels very real and raw and is one of the most beautiful books I've ever read. Takes your mind off of things and opens it at the same time.

Fantastisches Bombay und indische Kultur
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Henstedt-Ulzburg am 19.05.2019
Bewertet: Format: eBook (ePUB)

Ein wirklich spannendes und tolles Buch, mitreisend und alles hat er wirklich selbst erlebt! Muss man gelesen haben, insbesondere wenn man schon einmal in Indien gewesen ist...aber auch sonst.

Anybody who wants to know more about life itsself, has to read this book. It's always amazing when you see what people can get up to in their lifetime. And it's even more remarkable when they write a book about it, that is so riveting and unputdownable as this one. "Shantaram" is like a heart stopping rollercoaster full of humanity and love for all mankind. If you havn't already read it, do so. It's worth it. S.Krautz
