Review Author: Jame



Aravind Adiga’s debut novel is a story of modern urban India that rang true to my visits to Mumbai. Through an entertaining story of mixed identities, Adiga’s hero goes from raggedy peon into a wealthy businessman. We learn a lot about how wealth, caste, and sheer luck determine fates in today’s India, and what it takes to survive.
