Ok, so I have not read the book yet. However, I am definitely being asked about it a lot. A LOT.
After Slumdog Millionaire, the next FAQ is "Are the things in Shantaram, true?" "Is that really how India is?" "What do you think of the book?"
I had started reading the book, had reached the bit where he meets Karla and just could not read beyond that.
I will try again... What do you guys think about Shantaram?
