Read in December, 2011

I love the passion and lyrical intensity of anything Arundhati Roy writes. This book is an important expose of the corruption and horrific nature of the Indian state (and all modern states) that will kill and destroy people, villages, regions in the thirst for development and profit. It's a hard book to read though as it is in some ways a long rant. I skimmed much of this book and was thankful to be able to take in some of the horror, outrage and rage.
