How I Came To Read This Book It was a giftThe Plot Vicky Rai is the playboy son of a corrupt Indian bureaucrat he's also newly acuitted from a murder he was clearly guilty for a verdict that has the entire country of India up in arms When Vicky throws a party to celebrate his freedom he's subseuently murdered and a motley crue of 6 suspects are taken into custody for possessing guns A deeply dedicated investigative journalist concedes he will do what it takes to uncover the murderer of Vicky not because Vicky himself is particularly important or deserving within the story and to the reader but because Vicky Rai represents all that is wrong within the Indian justice system From there Swarup divides each section of his book background motives evidence aftermath into six stories written in six uniue styles surrounding the six suspects The stories are as diverse as following a tribal man on a spirit uest to a Bollywood sex symbol to a backwoods American seeking his mail order bride while the styles range from diary entries to omniscient third person to written almost entirely in dialogueThe Good The Bad I liked this book uite a bit a fair bit than the last murder mystery I read DB Shan's Hell's Horizon which I also gave 4 stars Its main strength lies in the focus on the murder suspects over the crime and victim which are really incidental in the exploration of how someone can be driven to murder or is really just in the wrong place at the wrong time Indeed as the book lays out in its first few pages and resolves in its conclusion the story is never really about Vicky Rai so much as India as a whole and the corruption that runs rampant in all systems that exist there It was also fun to get into these six different stories some were successful than others and I learned to appreciate them all at one point or another Knowing that they'd end up Vicky's party as murder suspects you spent a lot of each story being like How is this ever going to happen but Swarup successfully positions all 6 gun wielding guests in a sense that they could indeed have pulled the trigger conveniently but even then the suspect is not so easily fingered I think some people might be turned off by some of the style variations in the book but I felt it was fascinating to see the challenge laid before Swarup this is an ambitious book and I felt like it mostly succeeded The book often reminded me of the film Babel in its circular nature and provided plenty of Ah ha moments of connections and links that were either previewed or revealed or surprising I suppose others might be overwhelmed by the integration of Indian culture in this book if you've never read a book set in India I can definitely see this story as challenging to graspbut I still liked it A lotThe Bottom Line A fun book on many levels writing style character development guessing games that ends with a surprisingly poignant message Anything Memorable Nope50 Book Challenge Book #34 in 2009

There's a caste system even in murderSeven years ago Vivek 'Vicky' Rai the playboy son of the Home Minister of Uttar Pradesh murdered Ruby Gill at a trendy restaurant in New Delhi simply because she refused to serve him a drink Now Vicky Rai is dead killed at his farmhouse at a party he had thrown to celebrate. While I enjoyed Six Suspects especially the characters of Eketi and Munna the American character Larry Page did not ring true at all primarily because of his speech Attempts to make him an ordinary aw shucks Texas hick were admirable but his butter my butt and call me a biscuit style got very old after awhile and he really was just unbelievably stupid I've met my share of stupid uneducated people but this was just too much and for the only time in the book I just really wanted his Mail Order Bride section to end as uickly as possible His appearance seemed so random and I'm still not really sure what he was doing there Unfortunately this uneducated insanely stupid American uses very distinctively British English terms mixed in with crazy down South similes and metaphors which made him even unbelievable I suspect Mr Swarup's editor is a native British English speaker who might not have noticed the following1 Page refers to the flight attendant on his first ever plane trip as an air hostess;2 He talks about the ueue at passport control;3 He refers to the restroom as the WC;4 He calls a sidewalk a pavement;5 He has never heard of Time magazine not hasn't read it hasn't HEARD of it;6 Says that someone is in hospital;7 Gives the dates in the wrong order in his speech says 31 October instead of October 31st;8 Refers to a two week period as a fortnightI realize some of these things creep into American speech from time to time but an uneducated completely stupid person who seems to have never been out of Texas and apparently doesn't even know what the Constitution is Highly doubtfulThe rest of the book was great though Highly satisfying and I really wish Goodreads would let us give half star ratings I'd give it a 35 if I couldUpdate 3302011 I still think Page's use of British isms was distracting but I'm going to be a little forgiving of the American idioms I was thinking nobody really talks like that until I remembered educated Texan Dan Rather on election night 2000 my favorite is the one about the frogs

Six SuspectsTone age tribesman; a Bollywood sex symbol; a mobile phone thief; and an ambitious politician Each is eually likely to have pulled the trigger Inspired by actual events Vikas Swarup's eagerly awaited second novel is both a riveting page turner and an insightful peek into the heart and soul of contemporary Indi. Oh Dear Gods why did I finish this bookMy biggest problem with Vikas Swarup's first book was that the characters were underdeveloped and it felt like I was reading the novel adaptation of Slumdog Millionaire rather than the book that spawned the movieMy problem with this book was almost the exact opposite The characters were over developed but not in a good way The description of them felt repetitive The entire first section of the novel was completely unnecessary to any of the story lines Damn Vikas find yourself a better bloody editorI cared about exactly zero of these character I cared exactly zero percent who killed the politician's son It was bad and it never fucking ended
