Often times a great audio book can be spoiled by a terrible reader, but in this case, I believe Mr. Gigante, adds greatly to what already is a a feast for the imagination. His great voice and clear diction makes it a fun listen, especially considering how much of the text is non-english. He brings the characters to life with care and attention and is able to remain in character through out the book. This is an A+ effort and I highly recommend it as a fun bit of historical escapism. I'm glad I had a chance to hear it.

At times difficult to read because of the patois and Hindi slang, really loved the story until the end which seemed to bog down at times. Well written generally.Published on April 5 2014 by Rosalynde Woodcock
