White Tiger

Its not easy to stomach the abject poverty but you nevertheless must read this bizarre and disturbing rags to riches story of a nobody from the Indian slums.

You can skim: its the plot that counts; the writing is not quite so good. It can be finished in a few evenings.  Check out the echoes of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby: the rich, however well-intentioned, betray the poor through their myopia and blind selfishness.

My take on it: B with a big plus for plot
