by Aravind Adiga
I picked up a copy of this book after reading a review in my daily newspaper.
I was captivated almost immediately by the wonderful characters and the interaction between them. The story itself is intriguing and provides a wonderful backdrop against which Aravind paints a touching picture of life in an Indian city.
The tower blocks in which the residents live have been targeted for purchase by a local developer who is determined to build a reputation as one of the big players and will stop at nothing to get his own way.
But not everyone is happy with the plan, and when cash incentives fail, more drastic measures are called for.
This is an excellent book from an imaginative and very promising writer.
