5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful read, 17 July 2013

This review is from: The Great Tamasha: Cricket, Corruption and the Turbulent Rise of Modern India (Wisden Sports Writing) (Hardcover)
I bought the Great Tamasha with a bunch of other books about India ahead of my first trip there (for business) and this was the one that has gripped me (a bit of a surprise as I could not be described as a cricket fan). I'm actually finding it difficult to put it down, because I LOVE the tone: it's very funny in places, while being authoritative, and you feel the guy really knows what he's talking about. I picked it up wanting to know about business in India and I've gleaned a fair amount about that but the bits I've enjoyed most so far are about society, caste, the slum in Mumbai he visits. The book is stuffed with characters, some very famous, some not, all described in a way that has made me think about them when I'm not reading the book. Enthralling, in all, and beautifully, beautifully written.
