The book that transported me to India


What I love about traveling is experiencing the lives and culture of people in the places that I've been. And once awhile, there are books that are able to do just that. I've just finished reading one that transported me right in the middle of the working class in India who lived in poverty. I finished reading The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga in just a few days! 

It reminded me of a couple of other books that I enjoyed which was also based in India - The Glass Palace by Amitav Ghosh (also based in Burma and Malaya) and also Q & A by Vikas Swarup (adapted into Slumdog Millionaire).

    You don't know me but I have been reading your posts for the past six months. Your blog is really good. I read The White Tiger too after a trip to India in February and I really enjoyed it. Have you read his other book Between the Assassinations? I have just bought it and I haven't had time to read it.

  4. Zack - I'll contact you by email.

    Tina - I haven't been able to read much this year due to workload and everything else that are happening in between. But I'll always try to have a book ready next to me for that small window of time that I can read!

    Agnès - Thanks for reading my posts! Appreciate it. Yes, planning to get my hands on his other book!
