Turbulence in the US Part 7: The All-Star Game

So here we are again, with what is probably the last review/interview collection post about Turbulence for now. It’s been a delightful couple of months, and thank you for bearing with this power-blast of posts.

To start off this collection of superkind reviews off with a bang,

“What is the best superhero novel of all time?… it’s time to add another book to our list.” – superheronovels.com

And that’s not all:

“What’s amazing about Turbulence is that while it does a great job of paying proper homage to the many superhero stories from comics’ past, it also presents a story that feels very unique and original.” – The Geek Hard Show 

“For any superhero fan, Turbulence is a must-read. It’s got everything you’d ask for out of a comic book, packed into a clever, action-packed novel. It’s got a modern edge that puts it in it’s own category of awesome.” – Nerdophiles

“…Basu’s light touch is also deceptive; the writing here is often very good, and the super-powers — like that of the multiplying (and then reintegrating) Tia — consistently well-presented. Impressive, too, is how well he realizes his characters in just short descriptions and snappy dialogue.” – The Complete Review

“Well-rounded characters, a gripping plot, rippling with great writing.” – Popculture-y

“I’ve felt like Turbulence is a perfect sibling to Misfits, another great take on the superheroes genre, and as such I would recommend it to anyone looking for a original superheroes tale with a bit of a twist.” – upcoming4.me

I’m not sure if this counts as an official review, but as I was wandering through westeros.org in order to find more Winds of Winter previews I found this post about about Turbulence by a senior user.

“It’s a funny book, reminds me of Neil Gaiman at his wittiest in some ways, but it’s also sad, joyful, angry, tense… the characters are engaging, and the action is skillfully executed.” – westeros.org

Hopefully George R R Martin is reading his fan forums! The people there seem to have excellent taste.

Also, a few more interviews and an essay:

That’s all for now, folks, and thanks for being with me on this ride. And if you’d like to see the whole lot, collected reviews page here. Interviews page here. Articles/posts here.
