    Welcome to Kittur, India. Of its 193,432 residents, only 89 declare themselves to be without religion or caste. And if the characters in Between the Assassinations are any indication, Kittur is an extraordinary crossroads of the brightest minds and the poorest morals, the up-and-coming and the downtrodden, and of an India that modern literature has rarely addressed.

    nina says: "Great Listen, wonderful narrator!"
    "EXCELLENT!"
    Overall

    This is an important book by an important author who has already won a Booker prize. It captures the rich complexity of India on every level possible; no easy task. Adiga casts a keen eye towards social, political and economic injustices without a heavy hand. Rather, he creates a a deeply textured protagonist whose life tells us all we need to know about these larger issues from a personal and intimate viewpoint.

    The success of this unabridged audio version is clearly the talent and skill of the narrator, Mr. Harsh Nayyar. Mr. Nayyar 's timing is always perfect, his voice captivating, his pronunciation perfect. He draws us into the story immediately, before we even become invested in the main character. He transforms the reading of audio books to the level of sheer art.
