3.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced well written litany by spoilt Aussie, 21 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Holy Cow!: An Indian Adventure (Paperback)
Highly recommended and commended, so I read this before a trip to India. Its really well written, really flows, and allows a tidbits of insights into Indian society seen through the critical Westerner's eyes. It starts with a vivid description of pollution, dirt and chaos in Delhi, which is really overdone. If only the author would stop moaning about how India is dragging her down and getting on her nerves - after all, she is the Westerner with money, staff, air condition and money. She dips in here and there, offering a caleidoscopic view of oddities and spiritual quirks in this country - certainly very entertaining and a cracking read, offering enough history and cultural info to hold a conversation round some middle class dinner party table, but very little depth. Over all, the self-indulgent whinging and complaining really taints what could otherwise be an entertaining fast read. As travelogues go, this is perhaps one of the better ones, well worth a read. And the moaning and whingeing does become quite funny, although that was probably not the author's intention.
