There are many reasons, personal and practical, but let's say one of the reasons was that I was reading Gregory David Roberts' novel, titled SHANTARAM. A novel of almost 1000 pages.
It was my daughter who convinced me to buy the book, back in August 2015, when I visited my family. It turned out to be the most impressive book I ever read.
I started to read the book when our child went to summer school in May this year, and I took the book with me to read a few pages every day while drinking coffee and waiting in the mall, to pick up her again after a few hours. Although the start was a bit difficult, it ended up to be a page turner. I couldn't stop reading and couldn't stop thinking about what was to happen next.
It really governed my life for a while, until I finished a week ago. It's really a marvelous book and story, partly an autbiography, sometimes unbelievable, now and then heartbreaking and emotional.
It's really a book with a plot for a movie and there were many plans since the book was published, but so far none of the plans resulted in a completed movie.
If you check the media database IMDb, you will find that the movie is still of the category in "development".
