    They remain slaves because they can t see what is beautiful in this world. That s the truest thing anyone said Even as a boy I could see what was beautiful in the world I was destined not to stay a slave The White Tiger is a grim, biting, unsubtle look at 21st Century India, stuck in the mire of a corrupt, cynical past, and debauching and slaughtering its way i

    I m not sure what I expected going into this book but it wasn t really this The book was very tongue in cheek and I could completely sympathize with our narrator even at the end The idealistic part of me was a little horrified and upset by a lot of it but I think it s pretty realistic and really made me think about the servant master dynamic in a way I hadn t considered b

    I have just this minute finished this book and I can already tell that it will be one of those books that I will think about often It s not a book whose plot I can easily explain, or a book that I can easily fit into a particular genre on my shelves, but my God did it pack a powerful punch I have hardly been able to put it down between sittings.The books is narrated via a letter from Balram Halwai, a slum dweller turned driver turned murder
