Everyone is out to get you, so get them first
Mental disturbance or closed head trauma? Totally paranoid view of everyone and everything in India, complete with complex narratives of all that he has suffered there at the hands of others. Yet he keeps returning. I was expecting this book to deal with avoidance of endemic diseases and how to avoid unwitting offences to those living in a culture mostly unfamiliar to me. This is more like a travel guide written by Torquemada.
The narrator deserves much credit for being able to perform this piece ably and without apparent judgement.
I am thankful not to have paid for this item

The author sounds like he has had terrible experiences during each of his trips to India which has made him very biased against all Indians. I tried to be understanding through the first couple of chapters, but continuously grouping all Indians together as thieves and immoral people made me feel like the money I paid for this book was going to support aggressive racism. He makes every situation sound as if it is going to turn into the worst case scenario and violence will be the only way out most of the time.
