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”
