From the Back Cover
The first glimpse of the sea on Marine Drive filled my heart, if not my head. I turned away from the red shadow. I stopped thinking of that pyramid of killers, and Sanjay's improvidence. I stopped thinking about my own part in the madness. And I rode, with my friends, into the end of everything.
Shantaram introduced millions of readers to a cast of unforgettable characters through Lin, an Australian fugitive, working as a passport forger for a branch of the Bombay mafia. In The Mountain Shadow, the long-awaited sequel, Lin must find his way in a Bombay run by a different generation of mafia dons, playing by a different set of rules.
It has been two years since the events in Shantaram, and since Lin lost two people he had come to love: his father figure, Khaderbhai, and his soul mate, Karla, married to a handsome Indian media tycoon. Lin returns from a smuggling trip to a city that seems to have changed too much, too soon. Many of his old friends are long gone, the new mafia leadership has become entangled in increasingly violent and dangerous intrigues, and a fabled holy man challenges everything that Lin thought he'd learned about love and life. But Lin can't leave the Island City: Karla, and a fatal promise, won't let him go.

As much as I wanted to love this book- it was a total flop for me!! Fingers crossed that Roberts redeems himself with his next one!
From keen observations of India's spiritual beauty and culture: One of the great mysteries of India, and the greatest of all its joys, is the tender warmth of the lowest paid. The man wasn't angling for a tip: most of the men who used the washroom didn't give one. He was simply a kind man, in a place of essential requirement, giving me a genuinely kind smile, one human being to another.
To understanding the truth in human nature: In the world we created for ourselves, it's a lie to be a man, and a lie to be a woman. A woman is always more than any idea imposed on her, and a man is always more than any duty imposed on him.
To the meaning of life itself: The set of positive characteristics is in every particle of matter in existence, expressed at its own level of complexity, and the more complex the arrangement of the matter, the more complex the manifestation of the set of positive characteristics ... At our human level of complexity, two remarkable things happen. First, we have non-evolutionary knowledge. Second, we have the capacity to override our animal nature, and behave like the unique human-animals that we are.
I could relate hundreds of these astute and powerful observations from this one book, and it is on my 'to read again list' along with Shantaram.
This is a story for anyone. There are parts that contain violence (but not out of context) but there are so many well written and thought provoking parts that these far outway the bits that are tougher to read. The two books together are probably my favourite reads and I recommend them often.
