Overall—how did you experience the book while reading it? Were you immediately drawn into the story—or did it take a while? Did the book intrigue, amuse, disturb, alienate, or irritate, you?

    In the beginning this book didn't seem interesting. But as I started to read more and more I became intrigued by the story. I found the characters to be complicated in their own way. How does a young, poor waiter, find himself in a situation where he then becomes a contestant on a game show and ends up winning it all plus more. To know ever exact answer just by the experiences that he went through is remarkable. I also was disturbed by this story because of Ram's lack of sympathy towards Neelima when she committed suicide. The part that irritated me was how Prem Kumar tried to manipulate Ram into saying the wrong answer. He was determined to make Ram loose. It's amazing how Prem Kumar can play a facade as a good guy in some parts but is a really a bad person. I think overall this book was good and if I could change it, I wouldn't.
