    • Many of the individual stories were amusing to read, but the book itself was ruined by the contrived story of the overly conflicted, spiritually empty Western protangonist and the trite Eastern mentor. I felt no sympathy for either of them. I'd have much rather come to my own conclusions about the stories, instead of having to read the bee-buzzing anger/wisdom pamphlet-style conversation between the main characters.

    • I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the many stories the librarian/guide told throughout the narrator's climb of Chamundi Hill. I plan on re-reading this book someday because it is rather like looking at a painting: the viewer/reader will bring one's own experiences to the understanding of it.

    • a good read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      A bit confusing interpretations of Hindu philosophy and the stories narrated are sometimes bizarre ! However the book is an interesting interpretation by AtielGlucklich.
