If you have watched the film you must read the book.
From the moment that I watched the film I knew that I had to get the book and it did not disappoint in any way.
Given that it's based on the memory of a 5 year old, his story has gaps. whilst some of these are filled in the latter parts of the book, this sometimes makes it difficult to process what is remembered.
I found it very emotional and difficult to reconcile - it's heartbreaking to know that many children, in India and beyond, are still faced with these difficult living conditions and are forced to begging and petty theft for their subsistence.
Ps just discovered that this book was ghostwritten, which I found a little disappointing! Now more like a 4*....
However, this is a rare occasion where I feel I would have rather watched the film and decided from there whether to read the book. I can imagine the film provides an extra element of colour and depth that the book lacked.
