    Just started reading this huge novel and wanted to let future readers (and Dyerfan) know that there is a glossary in the back of the book to help w/unfamiliar words.

    Sacred Games

    A journey into another land, where things are familiar on the surface but become darker and more perilous the further you wander. I knew nothing of the Indian culture going into the book and was pleasantly surprised by some of the cultural and historical (implied) situations and positions discussed in the book. The characters were developed a little slowly at first and once the book gets going, it was easy to pick out my favorites. At times it felt like there was too much detail in the writing, yet it all managed to come together in the end, and I don't think it would have without the extra details up front. I loved the side stories interjected throughout the main story and how they nicely tied into and related back to the overall adventure being pursued by the characters. It was refreshing and felt more honest to have all the threads of the journey weave together at the end without a bow or clichéd ending. I really enjoyed the various arenas the book explores: gangsters, families, religion, commerce, governments and their agencies, teachers, rebels, kids all wrapped together with the same goal in their hearts but a thousand different ways to obtain it. On one level Sacred Games is fine example of religion being twisted and used to manipulate and remove opposition. My only recommendation would be to use the glossary at the back of the book from the start. I never look at the back cause I don't want to ruin the ending.
