Shantaram

My reading kick ended with this one:  Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts

Wow, I'm not sure I ever read a book this long (~900 pages)!

What a story to put our lives into perspective. A reminder that third world countries today still have clean water rationed, waste filling up the streets, and no access to medicine. A reminder that love for one another has no monetary boundaries or privileges.

I almost quit the book about three times, had to skim through a few sections, but I was determined to finish.

Open your mind and try this one out.
