Audible Editor Reviews

"Inventive and very clever. But most of all, it is fun. If you have ever picked up a comic book and enjoyed it, then this is a must-buy." (Starburst)

Publisher's Summary

Aman Sen is smart, young, ambitious and going nowhere. He thinks this is because he doesn’t have the right connections, but then he gets off a plane from London to Delhi and discovers that he has turned into a communications demigod. Indeed, everyone on Aman’s flight now has extraordinary abilities corresponding to their innermost desires. Vir, an Air Force pilot, can now fly. Uzma, an aspiring Bollywood actress, now possesses infinite charisma. And then there's Jai, an indestructible one-man army with a good old-fashioned goal: to rule the world!

Aman wants to ensure that their new powers aren't wasted on costumed crime-fighting, celebrity endorsements, or reality television. He wants to heal the planet, but with each step he takes, he finds helping some means harming others. Will it all end, as 80 years of superhero fiction suggest, in a meaningless, explosive slugfest?

Turbulence features the 21st-century Indian subcontinent in all its insane glory: F-16s, Bollywood, radical religious parties, nuclear plants, cricket, terrorists, luxury resorts, crazy TV shows, but it is essentially about two very human questions: How would you feel if you actually got what you wanted? And what would you do if you could really change the world?

    "Superheroes and Bollywood - what was I thinking?!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I only downloaded this book in a BOGOF deal, and if I had read the reviews more closely I don't think I would have bothered - BUT - I am glad I did. What a pleasant surprise to encounter a simple story, that kept me guessing a little, and made me smile a few times. So, yes, I would recommend it.
