"Sapna Sinha, an ordinary salesgirl in an electronics store in downtown Delhi, is approached by Vinay Mohan Acharya, a billionaire industrialist and one of India's richest men. He offers to make her CEO of his company. There is only one catch--she needs to pass seven tests from the "textbook of life". Thus begins the most challenging journey Sapna has ever undertaken--one that will test her character, her courage, and her capabilities. Along the way she encounters a host of memorable personalities, from a vain Bollywood superstar to a kleptomaniac Gandhian. At stake is a business empire worth ten billion dollars, and the future she has always dreamt of for her and her family. But are the seven tests real or is Acharya playing a game driven by a perverse fantasy? Vikas Swarup, acclaimed author of Slumdog Millionaire and Six Suspects, has written a compelling, suspenseful tale about the lure of money and the power of dreams. The Accidental Apprentice is international crime fiction at its most entertaining"--

I was really excited to read this book and, while it wasn't terrible, it left me a little empty. The plot was interesting, but the writing was superficial, the characters not particularly well developed, the twists and turns unbelievable. Overall, I would say I had a hollow experience reading this book.
