Hi, Buzz Book Club readers! I loved the film Slumdog Millionaire, and over the past few months, it's been a delight to watch this Danny Boyle movie work its way into the hearts of many — including, of course, the Academy Awards voters, who named the film this year's Best Picture.
The film also won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, and in doing some research into the film, I learned that the book it draws from is pretty different from the big-screen version — which, of course, made me want to read it. That is why I've made my March selection Slumdog Millionaire (originally published as Q & A) by Vikas Swarup.
For those of you new to my book club format, here's how it works: I announce a new book each month. Every week I suggest chapters to complete by the next post (which, in this case, will go up every Friday in March). In these weekly Book Club posts, I'll posit a few discussion-provoking questions for you to respond to in the comments section.
