The White Tiger

Title: The White Tiger
Author: Aravind Adiga
Atlantiv Books, 2008

This award-winning novel shows us the underbelly of Mother India. I felt I read it in a stutter. Snatching time for a few pages here, a few pages there. Maybe that was the problem and the novel demands a more devoted, full-time reader. Nevertheless, it never really got to me and the only two reasons I finished it was that I wanted to find out how the hell the protagonist killed his employer and, well, it won the Booker so I felt I had to make an effort. Turns out, I really shouldn't have bothered.
