    'Beautifully done... As honest a book as it is entertaining' -The Times ' Funny yet deeply melancholic, this is a brilliant and remarkably mature second novel... A rare achievement' -The Economist Twenty-first-century Mumbai is a city of new money and soaring real estate, and property kingpin Dharmen Shah has grand plans for its future. His offer to buy and tear down a weathered tower block, making way for luxury apartments, will make each of its residents rich - if all agree to sell. But not everyone wants to leave; many of the residents have lived there for a lifetime, many of them are no longer young. As tensions rise among the once civil neighbours, one by one those who oppose the offer give way to the majority, until only one man stands in Shah's way: Masterji, a retired schoolteacher, once the most respected man in the building. Shah is a dangerous man to refuse, but as the demolition deadline looms, Masterji's neighbours - friends who have become enemies, acquaintances turned conspirators - may stop at nothing to score their payday.

    A must read!

The other tower, ‘Tower B’ is a modern building occupied by young professionals. The protagonist of the story, the last man, is...

    Painting Bombay with Pen!

    Yes... No matter how long and stretched this book may be but it is filled with some delightful observation of Mumbai.

    By no stretch of imagination is LMIT the best of Arvind Adiga. It has a bandwagon of characters but non of them really strikes through. Neither is there any breathing space given for the other many characters to develop themselves. But there certainly are touches of brilliance. I for once thought that the Bhagwat-Gita reading Ram Khare and the Battleship- Mrs.Rego will provi...

    Arvind Adiga

    He does it again! Though this book is not as great as White Tiger, it is fairly close. Adiga's method or story telling is captivating. Yes, it is a page turner that's realistic than real. Don't miss this. It's surely one of the best books on your 'To Read' list.

    Best book on middle class masses

    This book is more about the characters than the plot. You can relate with each and every character here. The author's prose is awe-inspiring . It is in a laid back manner which I enjoyed the most. The character development is deep and examines the grey shades in each individual.
    The main theme is how the society reacts to exorbitant money offers. Very amicable neighbours can turn foes. The best part is the book is not preachy.

    AMAZING

    Absolutely stunning ... and we can say Adiga has done justification with his reputation of The White Tiger. The most beautiful part of this novel is that it shows how human character changes with needs and situation .
    Must read for all

    Thanks

    Awesome Read

    Loved it. Found it a better read than the first one. I loved the characters. The plot was amazing and the pace was just right.

    The thing that I liked the most about this book was that it does not create a distinction between what is right and what is wrong. It does not meddle with the reader's thinking. You can choose whichever character you like and still enjoy the book.

    Fascinating look into dark world of Mumbai property

    White Tiger was one of my favourite books, so I had high expectations. This is an entirely different book, but just as engaging, and a top class read.

    We know that in Mumbai property wars, land grabbing, and corruption, land is valuable but human life is seen as cheap - and it's always been that way. But Adiga paints a nuanced picture of that dark, seedy, greedy world - and how India's 'rise' has made it ever more sexily unscrupulous than ever.

    His characters are more nuanced than in White...
