There were a few pieces of this book that were quite good, sections that shared the author's insights into the people of Mumbai's Annawadi slum and the lives they lead. Mostly, though, it seemed that Boo just droned on disjointedly about corruption, politics and the Indian legal system, and turned what should have been a compelling story into a rather mundane one.

A beautifully written account of the lives of several Annawadi slum dwellers, and of their attempts to raise their standards of living. A few do it by fair means, but most by foul. The level of corruption is astonishing, but in their eyes necessary for survival. This is not for the faint of heart, but it is a valuable look into a world few of us will ever see firsthand.
