The White Tiger
The book is masterfully written. I loved the care that Aravind Adiga put into each sentence. All the details about India were complete and compelling, I could imagine myself in each place that he set the different parts of the story. This book also was the best plotted book I've read outside genre fiction in a long time. Most of the literary books I've been reading either have unsatisfying endings that sound like the author had reached page count and was ready to move onto the next project. Adiga paced this novel perfectly and when it comes to its Cask of Amontillado style ending you are in the perfect frame for the climax.
This book won the Man Booker prize in 2008 and I say it was well deserved. If you are looking for a good summer read I would highly recommend this book.
