Slumdog Millionaire: New school edition of a novel

Order here!

When a penniless waiter from Mumbai, Ram Mohammad Thomas, wins a cool one billion rupees in a game show, he is arrested on suspicion of cheating. After all, how else could a kid from the slums have answered all twelve questions correctly? 

As he explains to his patient lawyer how his extraordinary life taught him the answers, he tells a story – by turns comic and heart-rending – that takes the reader through the contrasts of modern India: from orphanages to brothels, from gangsters to beggar-masters, and into the homes of Bollywood’s rich and famous.

The novel started out with the title Q&A, but this was changed when a film based on it was released with the title Slumdog Millionaire. The film was a huge success and won eight Oscars and four Golden Globes. The novel and the film have much in common, but there are also significant differences.

In this edition:
  • background articles
  • glossary
  • comprehension and discussion questions
  • writing and research tasks
