This book evokes Bombay even better than Shantaram. Short of being there you won't get a closer experience.

This book was recommended on a recent trip to India and I thought it was an appropriate book to read when we hit Mumbai. The book was a yawn a minute! I am sorry to say I found it so tedious, I gave up half way through; I can normally get through any book. What I found difficult to deal with were the Indian terms and phrases which were invariably not explained. Coupled with that, the author talks about Indian personalities such as politicians and gangster-types, which might well mean more to a local person than it did to me. This is not a book I would recommended unless you are from Mumbai and are familiar with local phraseology and personalities.
