Excellent story

I have never been to India so I have no idea how authentic it is, but it's witty, tragic, exciting and plausible all at the same time.

The narrator does a great job at bringing the story to life, and the story of how a man wins a billion rupees (about US$25 million) is fascinating, with a most interesting twist at the end.

I can thoroughly recommend this book. It is original and most enjoyable.
