Just finished The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga

I just started reading The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga.  I was impressed with his other book, Between the Assassinations, so I've been looking forward to this one.  It has me hooked already.  The style reminds me of The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid.  I just know already that I'll feel torn about this character.

I finished this last night, and I was a little let down by the ending.  I'm not sure why, but I just expected something more.  I ended up feeling indifferent to Balram, the main character, when I was done.  I loved the letter writing style of the book, however, and I really enjoyed it overall.  I will definitely read more by this author.  My rating: 4/5

I'm really curious about this one, Christine, and will be anxious to read what you think of it.

I'm almost done, and it's really good. I am dying to see what he does with the ending.
