Could not put it down. Written in the first person (in the form of letters to the president of China!) it is about a poor village boy who grows up to be a rich entrepreneur in Bangalore. Yawn...you say. The devil is in the details my friend. This is not a feel good story - it is a brutal portrayal of the divide between the rich and the poor. It brings home the old truth that the poor are expendable and meekly accept that fate; unless - unless they are the white tiger. Its amorality hits you hard in the stomach. Awesome awesome book.
