Shantaram (Spanish) - Gregory David Roberts, Alejandro Palomas, Alejando Palomas An epic "true" story of a fugitive's life in India. I recently reread this and still enjoyed it. It might be an exaggeration, but it's beautifully written and it teaches you a lot about human nature. However, towards the end there is a bit too much philosophising.
