Shantaram - Gregory David Roberts, Humphrey Bower imageAudible

“The only kingdom that makes any man a king is the kingdom of his own soul. The only power that has any real meaning is the power to better the world.”

If you EVER decide to READ this book that is 933 pages long, chose PLEASE the audio-book that is 43 hours long.

Humphrey Bower IS a BOMB. Honestly, he is one of the best narrators I ever listened to. If not the best. HE IS GRANDIOSE.

You can either love this book or hate it. I love it. I don't though know if I would have loved it THAT much if I had read it and not listened to it.

It is not perfect, there were parts where I rolled my eyes, but there were so many great parts that I enormously enjoyed. And Humphrey Bower made all the great parts even greater and the weak parts simply great. Believe or not.

This book goes directly to my favorite shelf. And I declare Humphrey Bower officially to my favorite narrator.

Gregory David Roberts...Your life is everything but boring.
