Happy to read that he has updated his progress on the sequel to Shantaram, titled: Mountain Shadow.
Have been waiting for this novel since I turned the last page of Shantaram, but I guess he's been very busy with many of the charities he helps.
It really is an amazing book, and I'd have to put it close to the top of my list of best books of all time. GDR has a talent of description and story telling that seems to come naturally, although I'm sure he's gone through the ringer just like us all.
If anyone hasn't yet read Shantaram I would highly recommend it for its magnificent story, undeniably perfect pace and brilliant poetic writing that hooks you from the first paragraph, if not the title alone.
