Six Suspects - Vikas Swarup Oh Dear Gods, why did I finish this book?

My 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 movie.

My 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 editor.

I 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.
