Shantaram (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 420

Shantaram tells the story of an escaped Australian convict who takes refuge in the slums of Mumbai.

Summary Of The Book

Lindsay arrives in Mumbai with a fake passport. He is an escaped Australian convict who was in the middle of a long term in prison for armed robbery. Lindsay does not plan to stay in India. He has carefully planned to proceed on to Germany. While he is taking in the sights of Mumbai, he befriends a guide named Prabaker. Lindsay then decides to stay on in Mumbai. Prabaker takes Lin to his home in a nearby village. Prabaker’s mother likes the quiet guest and she gives him the name Shantaram, which means A Man of Peace.

Lin and Prabaker return to the city, but are robbed on the way. With no money left, Lin decides to settle down in the slums of Mumbai. He discovers the sleazy areas of the city with Prabaker as his guide, and discovers the hidden face of Mumbai, which is inhabited by a confusing milieu of gangsters, holy men, prostitutes, beggars, actors, and soldiers. He opens an illegal medical clinic to help the slum inhabitants get medical supplies. He lands small parts in Bollywood movies and also starts working for the Mumbai underworld. His gangster boss, Abdel Khader Khan, becomes a sort of mentor and protector for Lin. He escapes a long term in prison because of Khader Khan’s protection, and goes to Africa and Afghanistan on missions for him.

He falls in love with an attractive Swiss-American expatriate Karla, who is enigmatic and does not allow him to get close. After the death of Khader Khan, Lin realises that his real identity is lost. He settles down in his new home and tries to find the meaning and purpose of life and love in the strange melting pot of Mumbai.Shantaram is the story of a man who tries to escape his past, only to get more deeply pulled into the world of crime and violence that he sought to escape.

About Gregory David Roberts

Gregory David Roberts is an Australian writer. Shantaram is his first novel.

Gregory David Roberts, like the main character in his first novel, is a convicted criminal and a former drug addict. He escaped from an Australian prison and ended up in India. He spent around ten years in Mumbai. In fact, his book Shantaram draws a lot of inspiration from his own life. After being caught and imprisoned again, he served his full sentence and was then reunited with his family. He has returned to Mumbai to help set up a foundation for providing healthcare to the city's poor. He is engaged to Francoise Sturdza.

Great Crime fiction

Gregory David Roberts aka Shantaram is one of the Greatest writers I've come across.Shantaram is a semi autobiographical of the life of GDR.He writes with perfection.He's a born writer and I must say Shantaram is one of the 100 books an Indian must read in a lifetime.It has elements of a travelogue,historical novel,a crime fiction book.Its long and took me time to read.But you'll be hooked on to it once you start..The book is also very controversial account of his life and exposes corruption in police system and the criminal-police-politician nexus in a very interesting manner and the essence

933 pg, 42 chapters long masterpiece!

The experience of reading Shantaram is like that of drinking a fine scotch. With every chapter, you get a new high. The last few chapters create an incredible levels of curiosity and shock simultaneuosly. And then, the last chapter, in a clever way, lays the basis for the sequel to Shantaram. It leaves you wanting for more. It is rumoured that Gregory Roberts has been working on the sequel for the past 4 years. I have to say that I find it difficult to wait for the sequel. You just fall in love with this character and wish him a happy ending. But that doesn't happen. It isn't a bad ending eit

A-shantaram

Nothing ram like or peaceful about the book. It is the biographical journey of the author Gregory David Roberts, from an australian prision where was serving time for armed robbery to becoming a social activist. Through the journey he settles in Bombay in 1980's befriends Prabhakar, learns Marathi, Hindi, Prabhakar's mother renames 'Linbaba' as "Shantaram" the book records the huge dark underbelly of Bomaby that deals with false passports, currency, drugs, women. The slum dwellers, their life, the Bollywood and its Gora extras. over all an interesting read if you have the time and energy.

Drugs/Mafia/Philosophy/Adventure/Poverty=Shantaram

Well let me put it straight: it's just another novel till the chapter 29 (i.e, almost half of the novel). But later that it begins to make sense and is heart touching. Few points to new buyers:

>Not a good pick for thriller kind
>A good pick for those wanting to know prison life
>A good pick for few doses of philosophy. In fact it's coz he explains so much philosophy...that has made this book a 900+ read.
>And a very heartening novel in a few chapters.
>A definite portray of Mumbai as a city of mafia,poverty,survival & sea shores.

Chetan Bhagat fans rule this novel out. Bulk & classic reader

One of classics for collection

This book is very bulky and I was wondering what the author has written so much to fill it. After I started to read through pages, I admit, I couldn't stop. Some of the wisdom and philosophy have never been read anywhere by me before. The flow of the story is very well and its very interesting to read through Lin's journey through it.

At times, you get bored at some paragraphs. But jumping pages may make you miss some critical pieces in the story. I took long time to finish it, due to my other pressing needs. I would recommend this book anyone who loves philosophy. I learnt interesting things

Much ado for nothing

Contains minor spoilers.
In nutshell its a story of a fugitive from Australia who comes to the unknown land (India) makes it big in the city of dreams Mumbai.
Transformation of Lin from confused foreigner whose skeptic about his own future to a slum dweller to being a part of big Mafia gang is smooth and effortless.Book gives artless description of life in underbelly of Bombay as well as rich sophisticated upper class neighborhood with equal fineness. Book is really heavy on philosophical discussions and author tries to shed some light on human behavior, human emotions and explaining why we do

A classic with a disappointing end...

ABOUT THE BOOK : Shantaram was like an amazing love affair that I had with a disappointing and unexpected trajectory towards the end but it did leave behind sweet, unforgettable memories that make it a soulful read. The description of Mumbai and India makes you wanna backpack and visit the streets of South Bombay, have a beer at Leopold, visit Prabhakar's village. The story maybe about a fugitive but the honesty with which Robert brings out the emotions of all the characters is appreciable, which actually makes the book worth reading.
