A Long Way Home: A Memoir
First it was a media sensation. Then it became the New York Times bestseller and #1 international bestseller A Long Way Home. Now it’s Lion, the major motion picture starring Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, and Rooney Mara—nominated for six Academy Awards!

This is the miraculous and triumphant story of Saroo Brierley, a young man who used Google Earth to rediscover his childhood life and home in an incredible journey from India to Australia and back again...


At only five years old, Saroo Brierley got lost on a train in India. Unable to read or write or recall the name of his hometown or even his own last name, he survived alone for weeks on the rough streets of Calcutta before ultimately being transferred to an agency and adopted by a couple in Australia.

Despite his gratitude, Brierley always wondered about his origins. Eventually, with the advent of Google Earth, he had the opportunity to look for the needle in a haystack he once called home, and pore over satellite images for landmarks he might recognize or mathematical equations that might further narrow down the labyrinthine map of India. One day, after years of searching, he miraculously found what he was looking for and set off to find his family.

A Long Way Home 
is a moving, poignant, and inspirational true story of survival and triumph against incredible odds. It celebrates the importance of never letting go of what drives the human spirit: hope.

Uma Longa Jornada Para Casa (Em Portuguese do Brasil)
Aos 5 anos, Saroo pede ao irmão mais velho que o deixe acompanhá-lo à cidade onde ele passava os dias em busca de dinheiro e comida. Durante a viagem, o menino adormece. Ao despertar, confuso, se vê sozinho na estação de trem. Ele não sabe onde está o irmão, mas vê um trem parado. Imaginando que Guddu poderia estar lá dentro, Saroo embarca no vagão, e isso o faz atravessar a Índia. Sem saber ler nem escrever, e sem ideia do nome de sua cidade natal ou do próprio sobrenome, ele é obrigado a sobreviver sozinho nas ruas de Calcutá até ser levado para uma agência de adoção e ser escolhido por um casal australiano. Os anos se passam e, ainda que se sinta extremamente agradecido pela nova oportunidade que os Brierleys lhe proporcionaram, Saroo não esquece suas origens. Até que, com o advento do Google Earth, ele tem a oportunidade de procurar pela agulha no palheiro que costumava chamar de casa, e investiga nas imagens de satélite os marcos que poderia reconhecer do pouco que se lembra de sua cidade. Um dia, depois de muito tempo de procura, Saroo encontra o que buscava, mas o que acreditava ser o fim da jornada é apenas um novo começo.

Awake I: by an elephant in the room
"The old out-back town of Kalgoorlie has never before been so richly-strangely transcribed by way of prose as it has indeed been done in this wonderful memoir of a child's awakening!" This a somewhat tragi/comical memoir, but for all of that it has no agenda like so many who use their own personal accounts to implore their readership into some kind of political activist mentality usually related to some minorities entitlements or rights. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THOSE BOOKS!! It is meant to be read purely from a literary perspective none other.
