Q&A by Vikas Swarup


"Q & A" by Vikas Swarup is one of the most original books I've read in ages. An Indian waiter with no formal education is arrested after winning the top prize on the quiz show, "Who Wants to be a Billionaire" because the owners of the show are sure he cheated. In each chapter, the waiter tells his lawyer how an incident in his life helped him know the answer to the question. The stories are good to terrific and there are several twists and a surprise ending (or two).
