What I'm Reading

Or actually finished ....



Written by Booker Prize winning author Aravind Adiga, The White Tiger is a fascinating first-person novel detailing the life of a lower caste Indian in modern day India. The corruption, the ambition, the "entrepreneurs," and the "half-baked," -- this is an intriguing read for anyone interested in gaining insight into real-life India.

I'll have to pick that book up. I always like to know what people are reading.

A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry is a similar tale and I can't say I could handle another one. Quite important to read but as painful as anything I've ever read.
