“What an amazing book! As an expat living in Nepal, I found myself immediately transported into the vivid world of Samsara: the sights, smells, culture, people and places. The characters suck you into an enticing existentialist vortex that you can’t help but be enthralled. I was left wondering how many of their encounters were derived from Abramczyk’s own personal experiences and how many were a creation of his imagination, which demonstrated extraordinary skill and is the mark of a good writer.
This book has it all: love, loss, regret, smuggling, revolution, war, death, spirituality, culture and the sad yet true tale the Chushi Gangdruk (Tibetan Freedom Fighters). Interwoven through all of this, Samsara illustrates man’s inability to comprehend the cause/effect of karmic retribution, but ultimately emphasizes through love and redemption how we can overcome obstacles. Samsara is without question one of my top five books about the Himalayan region. I highly recommend this novel for anyone interested in travel, adventure and the mystique of Nepal.”
