If Indian fiction isn't a genre than Samit Basu has created it.
Revolving around the lives of passengers who were on a flight and somehow gain super powers, this book spins an interesting and entertaining yarn. The characters are likable, the powers are creative and although cliche at times, the book knows this and pokes fun at itself.
It's a quick listen and Ramon Tikaram does an excellent narration.
If you enjoy this book I recommend checking out Basu' other series The Gameworld trilogy. Also read by Ramon Tikaram.
Starts well, it's funny and entertaining and it manages to avoid cliche, but about half way in, it just... dies. Its narrative stops moving, it turns inward and it becomes very boring, despite it being very well read. I stopped listening at about 75%, I may pick it up again one day, but only if there's really nothings else to listen to.
This is not usually my usual genre but I thought I'd give it a try. The story was fairly unusual but the characters were interesting which kept my interest and there were a few twists in the tale.
