This book has everything..

Very captivating and addictive, this book is definately a roller coaster and is probably the best book I have read and will read in a long time..

It takes you to the heart of India and Linbaba (Roberts) has lived through almost everything in and around India. From working with the mafia, living in the slums, to starring in Bollywood and learning hindi and marathi in a village.. and then taking some time out to fight in Afghanistan ..

This is one of the best books I have read in over 5 years. It takes you 100 pages or so to get into the story, but once you have done that you're hooked.
It is almost unbelievable what a life Mr. Roberts led, escape/jail/heroin/Indian mafia/Afghanistan etc etc. I can't wait for his next book.

A pleasure to read, i have given it to many people as presents. A cracker of a book, not many come close to the rich content, you will start reading this book on the train/bath/bed and be transported to another place, you will experience the sights and even smells of mumbai in this rollercoaster..... Buy it!

This is one of the best books I have ever read - and I have read a lot in my lifetime!

Beautifully written - it feels like you are right there beside the gifted Greg Roberts in Bombay.
