One of my favorite books,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Son Of The Circus (Kindle Edition)
This is a great Bollywood of a book, slightly different from other John Irving stories. It contains all the great Bollywood story lines including twins separated at birth, Indian circuses and dwarfs.
But it is not however a simple a story.. It has a pathos which makes it rise above the expected, in the 'hero's' conflicting feelings about India and his continuing need to return to this country where he feels like a stranger in a strange land. It is also a thriller, has a fascinating serial killer, and enough descriptions of some of the cults and religions of India to keep one interested and intrigued.
I have read the book many times and each time I read it I never want it to end. I have bought it now in e-book
