The White Tiger – Aravind Adiga

white tigerREAD FOR BOOKERTHON

This novel provides a darkly humorous perspective of India’s class struggle in a globalised world as told through a retrospective narration from Balram Halwai, a village boy.

♥ “At the centre of this book is a touching story about India’s class system and the injustices that come with it. On the surface is Balram Halwai, a charming protagonist who manages to con his way through life. The dark humour ties the reality together and produces a provocative novel. I found this book hard to put down.” – Rachel
