Reviews - What do customers think about Encounters?

Truth hurts over and over  Jun 6, 2008
Simple journal writing from the mind of a hurt young man. Victim of his own being in a country he doesn't belong to. Maybe sounds a bit extreme, but in reality this is the just the story of one person suffering from the ignorance of masses.

Leaves one feeling uncomfortable... a touching insight into a world I'll never experience.
A very close encounter of fiction and reality  Jun 1, 2007
Encounters is a good insight into the religious undercurrents that are rampant in the Indian society. The economic euphoria of India aside, we need to look at the social issues that might/will de-stabalize India's success roadmap if they are not checked. This book provides a window into that ugly truth.
A sad story narrated with a gripping intensity  Jan 31, 2007
I thought this was an unnecessary tragedy at first. However, the author speaks of things that we Indians don't want to talk about, and the way the book ended was the only way it could. We are so wrapped in global accolades that the fact that brothers are a hungering for each others blood is too often ignored. This is a very emotional and raw narrative. Keep a few hours aside for reading this because you will not be able to put it down.
