    WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2008 WINNER OF THE GALAXY BRITISH BOOK AWARDS 'AUTHOR OF THE YEAR' 2009 '[An] extraordinary and brilliant first novel... Adiga is a real writer - that is to say, someone who forges an original voice and vision.' Sunday Times Meet Balram Halwai, the 'White Tiger': servant, philosopher, entrepreneur, murderer. Balram was born in a backwater village on the River Ganges, the son of a rickshaw-puller. He works in a teashop, crushing coal and wiping tables, but nurses a dream of escape. When he learns that a rich village landlord needs a chauffeur, he takes his opportunity, and is soon on his way to Delhi at the wheel of a Honda. Amid today's India's cockroaches and call-centres, its 36,000,004 gods, slums, shopping malls, and crippling traffic jams, Balram learns of a new morality at the heart of a new India. Driven by desire to better himself, he comes to see how the Tiger might escape his cage ... through murder.

    thrilling and brilliant writing

    this was by far the best book in its genre - fiction - I've read from a first time Indian writer. Brilliant story, superb plot, very well written.
    If you like dark and mysterious story filled with negative characters, in an urban setting you can relate, while xposing the underbelly of a city's new-rich lifestyle, this book will mix all that up and serve up a mean dish..
    worth a read...
    and don't care what foreigners think of a city or India after reading this... they should know better...

    Absolute rubbish!

    Received a pirated copy of the book with poor printing smudging, and arbitrary marks on various pages. Extremely disappointed with the purchase and would not recommend this particular seller (UJALA READ) to anyone.

    Arvind Adiga-Our Paper Tiger(Literally)!

    Plot:The story involves of how a small boy from some village makes it big with a murder and other twisted tactics.The story is dyed in dark humour and brings out almost all of our worst social problems such as poverty,bribery,casteism etc.

    Comment:Though the book won a booker prize ,i found out it comparable with slumdog millionaire.The only difference is that one is novel and other is movie.In both cases i find Indians baffled at their spectacular success.
    I would like to add a word of advi...

    Nice

    I feel the plot was good. But immensely slow which kills the the whole vibe of the story. It was written for the sake of writing. The story, plot and creativity of the story is what I liked. It was more of waste of time.
