The White Tiger

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Aravind Adiga

Narrated By: John Lee

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: April 2008

Duration: 8 hours 8 minutes

Summary:

Set in a raw and unromanticized India, The White Tiger---the first-person confession of a murderer---is as compelling for its subject matter as it is for the voice of its narrator: amoral, cynical, unrepentant, yet deeply endearing.

    Something unusual here: a different read. Witty, clever, full of dark humor, well-paced, creatively-told. An interesting, if not flattering, look at Indian culture/society.

    Great stroytelling from a not often heard voice in India.

    I recently read The Namesake too...I guess The White Tiger is the opposite side of "filial devotion." A really well-written and informative book that gives one a fairly bleak view of Indian capitialistic society/democracy despite all their obvious "success." The legacy of caste systems, the intractable divides between rural and urban society, rich and poor, Muslim and Hindu, are exposed in an inventive way as the reader follows the development of a boy from the "dark" who forces his way to material success in modern India.

    I usually cannot stand these kinds of books. The reader has a thick accent and I am not very interested in Indian culture. But I could not hit stop on this book. I took it in from the car and listened when I was home between drives. The only problem is that I started thinking with the reader's accent.

    Though the author has an excellent style to write and is very imaginative; the book really does not get to anything at the end. It seemed like the author has worked very hard on the style of writing, but not on the content.
