    A dark, yet fun read

    An entertaining, easy read of hard topics set within India’s many vivid layers. The charming narrator serves up harrowing tales with casual grace. His clever style makes this book a page-turner. Also, he makes you question not only him but the morality of it all.

    A quirky read

    An interesting commentary on the compexities of Indian life. A rythmical style of writing. Playful despite the darkness of the storyline.

    Ambivalent

    A strange ambivalence: a very different perspective on India than the romanticized one I read in Shantaram. Still a good read, if you don't mind feeling dirty at the end of it. More and more I find myself choosing to read books that are so very grey: full of questionable characters... Who do morally questionable things. But who is to say whats right or wrong? Is it wrong to live a servant's life, even if that's what you born to, even if that's what you want and crave? Is it wrong to aspire to more? Is it right to force people who don't aspire to more to aspire to more? Is my version of success the same as yours? I think we may all live in cages of our own making: we fly from cage to cage because we are afraid of the emptiness in between... Like my mother's pet canary, who was born in my parents house, who has never known freedom, we get scared and fly into our cages, shiver and look into toy mirrors and wait to be fed. Pensive and rather morose, that's how I feel after reading this book: book it speaks to how I felt after I visited India. So many of my colleagues were so proud of Indian democracy.... But it's as if they didn't seen the hordes of poor people sitting under the concrete bridges. I almost felt ashamed to not be as proud of my own Canadian democracy. I digress, a good read: be nice to have a frank discussion, if you have read this book too.

    The white tiger.

    ... uh uh, was quite interesting start, but then, the repeat came in... I made it to page 76... and just lost interest of this repeating it self story essay. Sorry. Not my type....

    A very interesting story that highlights the struggle of the down-troddens in a rapidly developing society, and how some can succeed through determination and ruthlessness.
