Definitely one of the most entertaining and engrossing audiobooks that have livened up my daily commute in the last year. I also loved "The White Tiger" when I read it, but I feel this book provides even more bang-for-the-buck with a relentlessly entertaining series of short stories that work well for someone such as myself looking to digest the material a half an hour on the 403 at a time. Mr. Aravind is a talented storyteller and creator of memorable characters, and the narration by Mr. Nayyar effectively evokes the inner life and desires of a wide range of characters whose personal beliefs and circumstances are often world's apart even though they inhabit the same small town in the turbulent India of the 1980s.
