    Absurdly and gleefully enjoyable superhero comedy thriller This might be the greatest beach book of all time The Indian setting gives the author opportunity for a ton of sharp observations and satirical heft as well as making this distinct from the same old US of A superhero roster there s loads of good female characters laugh out l

    Of late I seem to be rather adept at finding and reading lacklustre books Here is another one with a terribly disjointed storyline and droll attempts at humor.A review is beyond me for I cannot think up of anything to compensate the time spent trying to read this I tried an incremental approach 25 pages at first, a hesitant 50 pages and fi

    Whether or not you will like this playful novel about Indian superheroes depends largely on how much you like its distinctive voice Here s the opening paragraphs In 1984, Group Captain Balwant Singh of the Indian Air Force s Western Air Command had dangled his then three year old son Vir off the edge of the uppermost tier of the Eiffel Tower in P

    Let me begin by saying I have very mixed feelings about this book.First, the positives There are quite a few of them My favorite part is how Basu s writing cleverly inverts tropes and stereotypes, turning them upside down The language itself is evocative, without trying too hard, and features sly turns of phrases, witty references and jokes, and a very

    Review originally posted by me onUK Turbulence is a book about super humans Now I m the kind of person who likes his super humans confined to comic books and movies, so from the idea of a superhero novel is foreign to me, as such reviewing one is equally foreign so I ll start from the beginning.As with many books I find that the front cover provides me with no information a

    An unlikely combination of engaging humour and a juvenile story.Mr Basu s writing is witty and humorous, and very refreshing to read It is really unique irreverent, sharp, and demonstrates an understanding of the melting pot that is contemporary India I really enjoyed the first few chapters Really did Till the story kicked in.Think of Wodehouse, for instance The story in any of hi

    Will it all end, as eighty years of superhero fiction suggest, in a meaningless, explosive slugfest Yes Yes it will.I like the idea of this book a non US centric take on the superhero myth, challenging the way the world is set up to work, etc And for the first couple of chapters, I hold out hope that it ll be a fun mashup of, say, Heroes and The Satanic Verses In the end, though, despit
