  1. Hmmm Hard to say why I liked this as much as I did, because I often found the author s focus on himself distracting But, still, I kept thinking about the characters when I wasn t reading it, and put other things aside to finish it It s an odd story that you wouldn t believe is true because it seems so improbable, yet apparently it is true It makes you think about the nature of giving and selflessness, about ego and eccentricity, and about how the very things that first attract you to a person of [...]


  2. This book begins very well, with the author wryly describing himself as a jaded yet still hopeful New Yorker, and introducing his friend James as a potential hierophant, if not saint, beckoning toward a different way of life But after this promising beginning, the remainder of the book goes downhill, for me Neither James nor the author are developed in any interesting or meaningful way, and even the events set in what would seem interesting locales Delhi, Dharamsala are rather bland Whatever the [...]


  3. The Saint by Oliver Broody starts off as an adventure A in the loop New York reporter, Oliver Broody is bored by his bound to routine life and meets a fascinating saint like Gandhi enthusiast James Otis that promises a spectacular journey to overthrow a dictating regime The story is as much about the main protagonist, Otis, as about the journey and Broody himself As Broody inserts himself into the narrative he slowly unfolds the complex character of Otis in front of our eyes There is some great [...]


  4. Ostensibly, the book is supposed to warn us off those who may seem to be saints in a world that is both complicated and disillusioning Because the narrator is so caught up in and disgusted with the New York rat race, he falls under the spell of a would be saint, only to find the almost indecent realities of the man I didn t find it at all compelling even though I finished it.


  5. In this well written little book, Oliver Brody spares nothing in his portrayal of James Otis By the end, and actually well before, the reader knows exactly what Otis is all about But what s refreshing is that this warts and all portrait of Otis is consistently refracted through the author s equally unsparing observation of himself A good read, and a work of self criticism that, while rationaliizing nothing, is infused with unusual generosity of spirit.
