"I do not normally recommend crime novels more than 500 pages long, but I am making an exception with Vikas Swarup It's unusual, witty, quirkily, cleverly plotted, intelligent, and along the way it's an informative satire on Indian politics and values...a rollicking good read" -- Marcel Berlins Times "Gleeful, sneaky fun" -- Janet Maslin New York Times "Fascinating, multi-voiced slice of Indian life across the castes with political corruption at its centre...a lovely, lovely book" -- Sarah Broadhurst Bookseller "A page-turner of a mystery" Waterstones' Quarterly "Neat, clever and loads and loads of fun" Daily Sport
