ARVIND ADIGA WHITE TIGER PDF

Shelves: fiction They remain slaves because they cant see what is beautiful in this world. Thats the truest thing anyone saidEven 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 into a corrupt and cynical future, told by a working class fellow who, through ambition, intelligence, and a willingness to be utterly ruthless is clawing his way up the rungs of the Indian class ladder. It paints a bleak picture, offering little optimism for an India that will be any cleaner, fairer or more humane than the India it is replacing. Aravind Adiga - image from The Guardian While the subject matter is dark, the novel is fast-paced and engaging, drawing the reader in to the cares and concerns of the servant class.
