The book is abt a driver turned murderer turned a enterprising business man. The man starts his life from one of the many "darkest"(in all senses) villages in India where his enthusiasm to study is nipped in the bud and his chances to succeed in life are next to nil! But thanks to some street-smartness n luck, he ends up in Delhi as a driver. Soon poverty, "city-life" converts this simpleton of a man to to a murderer and then a business man.
Now thou I hv spent almost all my life in India, the socio - economic in Indian villages was truly a shocker to me.
The story in itself doe snot have too many twists and turns.The beauty of the book lies in its detailing ~~ But errr the painful detail with which certain scenes were described literally made me feel like puking(Imagine a whole two-three lines describing the car owners farting habits - yikes!).
There are people I know who have loved it but nee not yours truly!
