    Q & A New by Vikas Swarup is a novel about a poor boy as he grows up learning the lessons of life and ends up winning India’s most coveted quiz show.

    Summary Of The Book

    The tale of part fantasy, part curiosity and part reality. A tale of multiple layers unfolding with a new surprise element as and when Ram Mohammad Thomas, a boy with a humble, in fact poor or no background ends up winning the nation’s most prestigious quiz show Who Will Win a Billion? Well, the curiosity part does not come in his winning but in his landing up in jail as a consequence of his win. It is of course a matter of high doubt as to how an illiterate fellow living in slum quarters can find answers to all twelve questions posed to him in the quiz. From here, the plot unfolds as Ram Mohammad Thomas revisits his past and gives an account of his life through the tides of times. Ram’s tale is bound to keep any individual gripped to his tale as he moves from being an orphan to being moved in a brothel. From being alongside gangsters to finding himself serving a Bollywood star. The story is a complex drama of an individual who has learnt much in life just by being a perceptive observer and a keen listener.

    Vikas Swarup’s Q & A has received widespread critical appreciation both in the national as well as in the international space. The book has been translated in 42 different languages and made into an Oscar-winning movie 'Slumdog Millionaire’ which portrays the degree of popularity that it must have received.

    Immerse Yourself ! Its a lovely book.

    I am at the crossroads between Slumdog Millionaire and Q & A. I enjoyed watching the movie few years back when it won the Academy Award for Best Picture and I was meaning to read the book which is based on this movie. Glad, I didn't delay any further. Q & A is a well-written novel and I can't believe its Mr Vikas Swarup's maiden novel.The most irresistible page-turner I have ever read.This story catches you by the collar pulls you right into the pages of the book and doesn't let go until the ...

    Very Good

    If you have liked the movie, you will love the book. The plot is much more intense and gripping than the movie. Also it's different. I was bit skeptical initially as I thought I knew the storyline all through, but it looks like the storyline has a lot of changes in the movies. Overall, a good light read.

    fantastic !

    What more can I add to a book that was made into a film that got more Awards than any other film. The story is amazing, and wonderfully told. The story is absolutely riveting, and though you know how it will pan out after a few chapters, the tales that narrate it are still brilliant. Full marks to the author.

    Outstanding

    The book is even more intense than the film. The plain language adds to the appeal. The sequencing of the story is far better than in the film, though i have to say the title (Q&A) wasn't the best. Slumdog Millionaire sums up the story far better.

    Brilliant work.
