Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire By Vikos Swarup

Slumdog Millionaire is a book who is based on the film with the same name. The book was published in February 2009, a year after the film who won three Oscars. The book is set in India where also the writer comes from.

The book is about a boy who competes in India’s version of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire”, and to everyone’s surprise, he answer correctly on all the hard questions. He is being accused for cheating. What does a tea boy know exactly?? But then he explains how he knows all the questions. Behind all answers it is a story behind it, which he somehow has experienced through his remarkable life. It is not hard to feel for the boy who is called Ram Mohammed Thomas (in the film, his name is Jamal). He first loses his only parent (his mother) and from the age of four, Ram and his brother Jamal is set to fend for themselves. After a while his brother Jamal becomes criminal. Jamal wants Ram to join him and his criminal friends but Ram refuses. Ram is now all alone…

The book is very smart written and the book is really never losing its pace. It is a lot of twists and turns in the book. An example is when Armaan tricks the kids that have lost their parents…

Slumdog Millionaire is the story about the boy who became millionaire thanks to his life experiences. The book is for all ages and it is a book I recommend.
