The White Tiger
- Written by: Aravind Adiga
- Narrated by: Bindya Solanki
- Length: 8 hrs and 10 mins
Balram Halwai is the White Tiger - the smartest boy in his village. Too poor to finish school, he has to work in a teashop until the day a rich man hires him as a chauffeur, and takes him to live in Delhi. The city is a revelation. Balram becomes aware of immense wealth all around him, and realizes the only way he can become part of it is by murdering his master. The White Tiger presents a raw and unromanticized India, both thrilling and shocking.
Superb story, very poor narration.

Starting reading cause Indian writer - duh
Stopped reading because of rampant Indian slander. I just could not go through this book as it had a lot of forced India slander (a prerequisite for an Indian author to be published) - and had very little substance.
This is a highly overrated book. Maybe a non Indian who is racially motivated to feel superior than the browns can enjoy this book. No one else can.
