Folks, this is NOT literary fiction. It's not even a good airplane book. It wouldn't even have gotten good reviews in my freshman comp class. The book is one ridiculous analogy after another. Lots of very strained metaphor and simile. The dialogue isn't believable at all. Do yourself a favor - before buying this, read a few pages online. Joshua Donellan is most certainly not your typical writer. His creative and humorous style strings together the most outrageous and non-nonsensical comparisons which truly are laugh out loud funny.
I typically read while travelling and more than once caught myself laughing much to the curiosity of those sitting around me. The story follows Levi, whose life in Australia has just imploded in the most spectacular fashion, as he travels from one end of India to the other dodging a gauntlet of hazards and attempting to fulfill his brother's unusual requests. The book does touch on much deeper issues, but in a light hearted yet philosophical way that is both refreshing and comforting.
Anyone who enjoys travelling will most certainly identify strongly with this book and it will make an excellent pre-trip read if you intend to visit India.
Donnellan was writing this review, he would use a witty and accessible simile to describe how the book made him feel. I'll do my best to describe how I feel: These pages appealed to me like I was eating the most delicious burrito right before riding my bike in the dark to a Velvet Underground gig in the sixties. His ability to describe emotions and places with sincerity kept me yearning for more.
I was extremely impressed for an author of his age to tackle the deep subject of death. Ironically, while reading this book, I had a person close to me pass away. This book was just the tool I needed to shed light on the subject. A beginner's Guide to Dying in India made me laugh, ponder, and feel proud of my generation.
