This is what I wrote in 2008 about this read: "Fantastic! Modern Mumbai amidst all its crimelords, movie stars, good cops / bad cops, greed and goodness, and Ethnic and religious tensions. Hmmm . . . Maybe I should have a guru . . . "

Abhay, un estudiante hindú recién llegado a Estados Unidos, hiere de un disparo a un mono ladrón que frecuenta el tejado de la casa de sus padres cerca de Nueva Delhi. El impacto que recibe el animal es tan fuerte que recupera su conciencia humana: en una existencia anterior fue Sanjay, un poeta del siglo XIX que ahora, reencarnado en mono y herido, sino desea morir deberá contar cada día un relato diferente, que resultará ser un gran repaso por la historia de la India.

What an interesting experience to meet unlikeable characters and yet still care what happens to them. Really enjoyed this book and am sad it is over.

Fascinated to see the changes made for the Netflix series. Some huge differences that make me wonder who made the decisions and why.

Only 1/3 about code; the rest was Indian philosophy which went a bit over my head. That a formal grammar for Sanskrit was developed a few thousand years BCE was amazing.
