what would you do...,
This review is from: Last Man in Tower (Paperback)
after reading white tiger i decided to read another book by the same author to see, if like so many authors, he was a one horse trick - i was proved wrong.
the book is about a block of apartments in mumbai, where a developer comes along and offers the residents a highly, above the standard rate, offer for their properties. the book goes into details as to why, through greed and a certain promise of a better life the residents turn on themselves to make the deal go through. 99% are desperate for this to happen but one character is refusing to sell his property. what i liked about the book was the descriptive talent of the author, plus the highly detailed character analysis which provides a thorough breakdown as to why the characters do what they do.
ok, so the book isn't as good as white tiger, but this is still a fantastic story. i highly recommend this if you are interested in india or planning to travel there.
