What's it all about?
  • Grab your current read
  • Let the book fall open to a random page
  • Share 2 "teaser" sentences from the page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • No spoilers! Just teasers :)
This week I'm reading Q & A by Vikas Swarup which you may know is what the recent film Slumdog Millionaire was based on. I really loved Slumdog Millionaire, which was directed by Danny Boyle. I saw it just before Christmas and now it's won a ton of awards, well deserved awards if you ask me!

I'm not very far in so I can't tell you yet how similar Q & A is to the film. I can, however, give you a teaser...

'Absolutely, once hundred per cent correct! You have just won two thousand rupees.'
'Amen,' I say.
I'll post my review when I'm done. I'll let you know how similar it is to the film.

Has anyone read this book or seen Slumdog Millionaire? What did you think?

  3. I read the book and saw the movie I LOVE them both so much!! The movie is now my absolute favorite movie ever. I had not heard about it until I got two free screening tickets to see it in November, and after watching it I was so wowed it was crazy. I told everyone I knew about it and to go see it b/c it's just so darn amazing. A lot of my friends loved it as much as I did.
    The book is quite a bit different from the movie. The movie focuses way more on the love story part than the book does. Q&A is really good but to me the movie is better b/c I just love love stories hehe :D
