The movie Slumdog Millionaire is based on a book, I think it's called Q &A- I can't remember the author's name. My question is- has anyone ever read the book and if so is it good?

Hi Shelly,
 
Yep Slumdog Millionaire is based on Q&A by Vikas Swarup.
 
I have read the book, and I wouldn't say it's commendable, but it's a good read.  Many of the things that the protagonist goes through feel real if you know anything about the Southeast Asia.  His struggles to survive, insights of the character, learning process make it even more insteresting read.
 
However, there were a few things I wasn't so comfortable with, but then again I guess that's the aim of the author - makes you challenge your ideas/self. 
 
If you love books, I suggest you read it - it brings the true struggles both external and internal of the person to light.
 
It's nothing like the movie.  The format is quite the same relating to the Quiz Show but most of the situations, even the names of the characters and their relationships are different.

Hi,
 
Well, downloading books online is illegal and we don't support any such thing on IF, so any downloadable likes can't be provided on IF.
 
However, there are some sites where you can pay and then read the books and that's perfectly legal.  I have never done that, but I'll look into it and let you know if I find anything useful.

You're most welcome, Shelly! I usually go to my University Store and check out the new books and/or the bestseller collection etc and there I found it.  All the best, I hope you find it soon.
