This was the most entertaining and amusing book I've read in months. I laughed out loud numerous times. The author has a gift for description, self-deprecating humour and finds the perfect words to reveal what he is feeling and experiencing. He is unafraid to share his foibles, faults and musings. Cynical and endearing he takes the reader along on the India trip as if he were speaking to an old friend. He has a refreshing honesty and awareness of himself and how he sees the world. It's a thoroughly fun read, an endearing ending and I look forward to reading more of his books. I highly recommend it.
