Turbulence by Samit Basu

Unusual in many ways – being an Indian science fiction comic superhero novel. Also very witty and full of pop culture references, and very entertaining. Basically all the people on a British Airways flight to Delhi gain superpowers based on what their personal dreams and aspirations are. Conspiracies and super villains abound, and you are kept guessing until the end. Makes you wonder what super powers you’d end up with on that flight.. I would have ended up either the greatest rugby league player ever or an avenging vegan I guess. Rumours of a movie version which would be great! 90/100
