The Book: Local Monsters by Samit Basu
The gist: Four monsters (read: superheroes) are brought together to build an army to fight evil.
One-line review: The book grips you instantly and is unputdownable, partly in the hope of seeing the first character, Latex Latha, live up to her name.
Read it if you liked: X-Men or any superhero comic/graphic novel.
But Caution: There is a dubious twist after which the story rushes to finish itself.
The best line: “Everyone hates Delhi in the first year”
