Between The Assassinations ~ Aravind Adiga

* LIKE *

OHHH! India!
Like watching a train wreck!

I seem to have a morbid fascination with the sub-continent.
What a complex, chaotic, yukky place!

This is a “story” composed of vignettes that are loosely (very loosely) tied together as snapshots of people in a fictional Indian city.

There is a range of voice : rich and poor, different religions, different castes, different ages groups. But is it still India ... with such a different moral outlook.
