5 - Excellent Review

Reviewer:

Wow - such a powerful book. The true stories of lives in a slum outside the Mumbai airport from 2008-2011. Lots of hard living, unbearable corruption and grasping for economic opportunity. It opened my eyes yet was not depressing. I guess because virtue and hope still survive in the harshest conditions. The style was new to me - narrative nonfiction. Basically it's written like a novel but everything is true. It was a good way to present this subject matter.
