The Accidental Apprentice by Vikas Swarup

A bit of a hotchpotch but enjoyable nonetheless. Swarup sticks to his numerical formula (Millionaire questions, 6 suspects) with a young woman facing 7 challenges in a reality show type challenge from an eccentric billionaire. The book is more like 7 short stories with a common link, and all give the author an excuse to rant about modern Indian life.  Lots of wit, pop culture references and odd characters keep the book entertaining. 72/100
