A by Vikas Swarup Read & download ´ 0 Vikas Swarup ☆ 0 Free read Review Q A by Vikas Swarup A renamed Slumdog Millionaire after the Oscar winning film based on the book is a beguiling blend of high comedy drama and romance that reveals how we know what we know not just about trivia but about life itselfVikas Swarup's spectacular debut novel opens in a jail cell in Mumbai India where Ram Mohammad Thomas is being held after correctly answering all twelve uestions on India's biggest uiz show Who Will Win a Billion It is hard to belie. I should mention that this 1 star review is not at all related to my opinion of the movie Slumdog Millionaire which I liked much better than the book I am glad that the movie makers smartly retained the only decent thing about this novel that is the game show plot device and tossed almost all of the rest into the trash because that s where this novel truly belongs This book badly needs some editing or even better a different author I read in some review that Slumdog Millionaire feels like a juvenile s attempt at writing and I have to agree It is not even L of literature It does not take long to get tired of the flat narration Anyway writing style is perhaps not the biggest problem with this novel The story is so full of cliches Every episode in the life of the protagonist seems as if it is pulled out of some cheap bollywood masala movie the episodes in the movie Slumdog are way better Swarup took all the vices and social issues he could think of and stitched it all together into a story Child abuse murder suicide incest prostitution theft robbery corruption eve teasing poverty riots religious suabbles underworld India Pak war it s all there Homophobia and pedophilia is way overdone Such is the cheap drivel Swarup is selling in the name of realism He has played out the religion card too and named the hero Ram Mohammed Thomas With this selling recipe in place MrSwarup perhaps didn t think there was any need put an effort into the actual writing any These are a few snippets of this book s review from by people outside India Despite heartrending descriptions of sexual abuse racism poverty homeless and much much in modern India this is an utterly enjoyable picaresue adventure that is one of the best reads of the yearthis is an easy and entertaining story that captures much of the essence of this fascinating country It offers a very good look at several different societies and life styles in Indiaan exciting and fascinating glimpse into the life in modern India Well written and full of both common day life and historical facts about the densely populated peninsulaGives some overview of reality in Indiathat gives you enough of the misery that exists in IndiaIt is well written and describes India as it is todayOh Puhleeze This ain t modern India or even India in the older times for that matter None of the episodes in the book has even a faint resemblance to the life of a common man in India A common man doesn t spend all his life amidst every imaginable crime and misery Swarup is pandering to the western audience by giving an impression that abuse poverty misery and what not is all there is to Indian way of life And that too from a person like Vikas Swarup who is an India diplomat and is supposed to represent India to the world outside At least I think it was pretty clear in the movie that it was just a story of an orphan boy from slumsThe depiction of Bombay slum life as a backdrop was perhaps much closer to reality in the movie than Swarup s novel The movie never seemed to claim that that was the essence of life in India Swarup on the other hand draws his characters from different economic classes different religions people ranging from movie stars to diplomats priests businessmen middle class slum dwellers and all And he presents every possible way of life in India with just a dark side to itSwarup himself does not even live in India And even during his visits to India I am sure he has only experienced the life of rich upper class who form only a small fraction of our population It is not a surprise that he is completely out of the touch of the reality of common life in India Someone please tell him that watching a bunch of bollywood movies is not how you get an experience of Indian life

A by Vikas Swarup Read & download ´ 0 Vikas Swarup ☆ 0 Free read Review Q A by Vikas Swarup D Australian army colonel to his career as an overly creative tour guide at the Taj Mahal Swarup's A is a beguiling blend of high comedy drama and romance that reveals how we know what we know not just about trivia but about life itself Cutting across humanity in all its sualor and glory Vikas Swarup presents a kaleidoscopic vision of the struggle between good and evil and what happens when one boy has no other choice in life but to survive. I was torn about how to rate this book On one hand I just loved the unusual plot and could have easily given it 5 stars On the other hand wow I don t remember the last time I read anything so blatantly homophobic Three different male characters two of whom are clearly identified as gay were predatory pedophiles who abused young boys A third man was also a pedophile who abused young boys but at least the author never claimed he was gay I didn t feel any of these characterizations were necessary elements of the plot either so they just seemed gratuitous It s too bad because this book could have easily made my list of my favourite novels of all time but the homophobic overtones sort of ruined it for me

    Q A by Vikas Swarup [E–pub Free] Review Q A by Vikas Swarup I have rarely been as ambivalent about a book as I was about A I realized about half way through that I could put it down never pick it up again and not feel any remorse at all Yet it was just engaging enough to continue reading and I finished it I was moderately intrigued throughout but nothing in it lit a passion in me at allBasically I'm glad I checked it out of the library
