Time to read

I finally got home the book "Shantaram". Written by Gregory David Roberts. My best friend who has more books than clothes had mentioned this book to me almost a year back which i had instantly forgotten. Used to look at it in bookstores and walk away. Reason is really stupid. I thought this book was about Shakuntala Devi. The Indian calculating prodigy. See how my brain registered both  "Shantaram" and "Shakuntala" as one name.:-)

Few days back, my friend spoke about this book again saying its really good. Now it was a strange feeling to me 'cos she knows exactly what kinda books i read and never once have i bought anything related to numbers, calculations and stuff. But then she started talking about the book that caught my attention. The book is about an Australian bank robber and heroin addict who escapes prison and reaches India to live in Bombay.

Will start reading this weekend. Yay..!!!!
