LOVE this book!

From the first paragraph read I was absolutely hooked! The story follows the struggle to survive in India and the driver sub-culture. This is not a fairytale, it tells the reader about the fixed class system and the hard struggle to get out of the "darkness". This is one of the best books I have ever listened to, I wished my long journey to work was longer! The book would make the most amazing film.

As a result of the high ratings I decided to purchase this audiobook. I found it really hard to get in to. I normally would not give up on a book as often they can be slow burners. This one never even smouldered! I gave it 2 hours of listening then it just became a real chore. The book was very unusual and well read...just not for me!

This book is so amazing I was hooked from the beginning. This has to be the best book I have listened to so far. It was beautifully read with the narrators bringing the rich tapestry of characters to life. I can't gush enough at how immense this book was. I didn't realised there was a film last year based on the book...I must pick it up although undoubtedly it will not be as good as this book. I came across this book by accident, and based on the positive feedback decided to give it a go. So glad I did, I won't forget the characters for a very long time.

I read this book on the train going down to see the War Horse theatre production. This book is an amazing emotional roller coaster all the way through. The book is beautifully narrated, I listened to the book in one sitting, I couldn't put it down! The imagery created by this audiobook was absolutely first class. It was so great I will read it again!
