The White Tiger is a picaresque fiction, which means the novel depicts the adventures of a roguish hero of low social class who lives by his wits in a corrupt society as per google and Wikipedia. This was my first read in this genre, and honestly, it was a good experience.
I was fortunate to meet Jerry Pinto in person at a book event in Mumbai. He is one of the most humble and polite person I have ever met and also he has a very good sense of humor. In the Q&A session, someone from the audience asked him about how true is the story of Em and the big Hoom to which he replied that the story is based on true events with a bit of fiction added to only make it better.
A good read. It is worth sparing an hour of your busy schedule.
A well rated 4 star book !!
I liked this book. The book gives a comprehensive feel of how our mind plays the trick.
In terms of the writing style, I would say the translation of book to English could have been better and more presentable. Its pretty evident from the content that the Hindi version would have had a better impact on me as a reader .
