    Another one of my all time favorites I don t know how I stumbled on this book, but its worth the 955 pages yeah really What I liked best about this book is the exploration of the main characters alienation He is neither British nor Indian, Christian, Muslim or Hindu, he s everything and nothing all at once Actually I might recommend this book if you liked Life of Pi Although I would say that this is a muchthorough and interesting tale The novel takes place in India in the late 188 Another one of my a...
