Covertext: "Balram Halwai is a complicated man. Servant. Philosopher. Entrepreneur. Murderer. Over the course of seven nights, Balram tells us the terrible and transfixing story of how he came to be a success in life - having nothing but his own wits to help him along. And with a charisma as undeniable as it is unexpected, Balram teaches us that religion doesn't create virtue, and money doesn't solve every problem - but decency can still be found in a corrupt world, and you can get what you want out of life if you eavesdrop on the right conversations."


An interesting book for sure!

I loved this one. A totally fascinating and engaging read. I loved the narrative voice. What a character! He admitted he murdered his very kind boss right from the start, but I still could not help but fall for him.

Considering this is the author's debut work, I am very keen to read more.

I really liked this book, which took me back to my Indian years and explained what made me wonder so much at the time: why do they endure that and how do they support those lives?
I really enjoyed the immersion in the driver's psychological evolution, where we follow his path and his changeover, step by step.

A very good surprise, thank you for this discovery. :-)

The White Tiger was a quick and interesting book. It took me a couple of chapters to warm up to this, but afterwards I enjoyed a lot this poignant, tragicomic story, written with wit and a bittersweet humor. A clever inspiration from the author to write both an amusing book AND an account of how things work in India, especially for those coming from the "Darkness" .

Thanks once again for sharing : )
