Winner of Seven Bafta Awards inlcuding Best Film, 'Slumdog Millionaire' is based on Vikas Swarup's bestseller 'Q and A', which only took Swarup two months to write! Read by Kerry Shale, this beautiful award winning audio communicates Vikas' words and narrative to life, allowing the listener to envisage the colour and vibrance of Mumbai and the hard hitting truth of poverty and struggle through the eyes of two young boys and the friends they make along the way. One of the boys comes through it all, knowledgable and determined by answering twelve questions correctly on a gameshow. Stunning an audience of millions, he draws on a store of street wisdom and trivia to provide him with the essential keys, not only to the quiz show, but to life itself. Adapted for the big screen Swarup's achievement has already been marked by winning four Golden Globes. Slumdog cleaned up, winning seven of the eleven award nominations including Best Film at the BAFTAs in London so the only thing left for Swarup to think about now are the Oscars whereby this enchanting story has been nominated ten times!
