Thumbs up Q & A: Slumdog Millionaire by Vikas Swarup

Im reading this now, and I am in love with the writing style, the story line is different from the movie. But you can def see the similarities that are used. Writing is very detailed and vivid. And I love all the Indian culture references.

Must read! I cant put it down!

Usually the book is better than the movie so I will keep you guys posted, since I already saw the movie!

I thought the book was great, even more colorful and created better visuals for me than the movie. But I loved the movie too, mostly because of the awesome soundtrack!

wow Im almost done with the book, its very different from the movie, I dont want to give it away but as the storyline is the same many parts of the booked are "cleaned up" in the movie! And the characters are different to an extent. I dont know if I couldve handled some parts in the book on the screen but its def a page turner! pick it up asap!

I will have to get a copy of the book so I can compare the book and the movie since I've already watched it. =)
