5.0 out of 5 stars All you ever wanted to know about India and more, 10 Jan 2006
This review is from: An Indian Calling (Paperback)
If you're thinking of spending any length of time in India, before you buy a copy of the Rough Guide get your hands on a copy of Mick Sheridan's "An Indian Calling". Mick will give you a hilarious insight into the smaller details that most guide books gloss over. Hopefully having digested Mick's book you will be able to avoid the numerous pitfalls that face you at every turn. The first lesson you will learn concerns luggage. Mick and Julie, his patient girlfriend who accompanies him on this adventure get through a lot of luggage, not because they have a suitcase fetish or need to be seen sporting the latest Samsonite range. No, it's all down to the Indian baggage handlers and their inherent brutality with luggage whereby it seems they will do whatever is needed to damage your luggage before you get it back. You've been warned.
This book had me laugh out loud several times on the tube something I might add that doesn't happen too often and in my opinion that makes this book a more than worthwhile read. Mick went to India with Julie to get away from it all but you will discover that this is not as easy as it sounds. Not only will you learn something about India, you'll also get a small insight into "Brits abroad" and the views of a Brit on this matter. The book in parts elaborates on some areas in too much detail for me, I felt like I had received a training session on call centres by the end of it all but this can be forgiven as there are a multitude of funny moments in amongst this all.
All in all a damn good read.
