An Excerpt

Book: Shantaram
Author: Gregory David Roberts
It’s about: a hilarious sarcasm of “Sound Sleep”

“There’s a theory that Snoring at night in sleep is a subconscious defense reflex – a warning sound that frightened potential predators away from the mouth of cave when our lower-Paleolithic ancestors huddled in vulnerable sleep. That group of Afghan nomads, cameleers, sheep and goat herders, farmers and guerrilla fighters lent credibility to the idea, for they snored so thunderously and with such persistent ferocity through the long, cold night that they would’ve frightened a pride of ravenous lions into scattering like startled mice.”
