Description

Johnny Gone Down, by Karan Bajaj, is a compelling adventurous tale of an ordinary man battling an extraordinary destiny. It is the author’s second novel.

Summary of the Book

Nikhil Arya was once an Ivy League scholar with a promising bright future at NASA. But now, at forty, he is impoverished, destitute, and only minutes away from blowing his brains out in a hellish present-day bickering. He is well aware of the fact that it wasn't meant to be this way. An innocent vacation became a heroic intercontinental expedition, which saw Nikhil becoming many things - a genocide survivor, a drug-mafia lord, a vagrant accountant, a Buddhist monk, a software tycoon and a deadly game fighter. After twenty years of restless nomadic life, Nikhil, also known as Johnny, is exhausted. He has abandoned his wife and son ten thousand miles away. But he has to get ready for his final act, and there is a possibility of him losing in a way, even if he wins. Will he prepare himself for it? Is there any grander triumph than living a life with absolutely no limits? Will he be able to lead a normal, happy life with his family ever?

Worth a read - definitely !

Not sure why this book did not catch the public fervor as in Chetan Bhagat's novel releases. May be it was because this book seems more like a bollywood movie than Chetan Bhagat's more realistic one. You can relate more to Bhagat's novels. They are set ( very clevery ) to current situations.

However that is not to take away anything from Karan's Jhonny Gone down. A definite good read. Gripping storyline. Thrilling. He(author) has the ability to keep up the reader's interest ( which very few ...

Johnny Gone Down - But definitely in the shelf of BEST BOOKs!!!

Though I was little bit concerned about buying a new author (as I had enough few bad experiences buying new others and I haven't read his Keep of the grass by then), once I started reading this book I found that it was completely worth!

A really awesome book & I can't believe its his second book! A MUST read if you like thrillers.

And as usual FK service was simply AWESOME! They got three books delivered in LESS THAN TWELVE HOURS...! Really impressive guys, keep it up..

Nice

Feels like some hollywood movie. Good read but it's not a book you recommend to someone. Lots and lots of good book out there, it won't matter if you miss this one in particular.

This book is not Time-pass.Needs peaceful atmosphere.

Language used = English

Age Group = Adult

Advise = Not recommended to read while traveling. This book is not Time-pass. It needs peaceful atmosphere.

What I liked = I observed that debutant author with his success of first book, is always in hurry to launch another book. And here it makes mistakes. In hurry he forgets to have originality and to have something different from the first book.

However, not in the case of Karan Bajaj. After success of 1st book, it took considerable time to lau...

Been there, done that!

This is book is too dramatic to be true and author tried very much to portray a truly beautiful soul searching or real meaning of life without letting down the spirit even in the worst scenarios in life like losing an arm. This is like a world tour India-America-Cambodia-Brazil-America-India. This is ridiculously magnetic and you would easily fall in the groove at the earliest happenings in the story,a definite page turner. Stands as an inspiration for any traveler madly going out without mon...

Stunning Fiction novel

Actually this is my 6th book.I quietly impressed by the outline of the book,which was wrote in the back.And it was quietly flimsy stuff.But it was like an adventure with this book.And each chapter is kind of impressive.

verdict:Its a good book to read,and a good time pass.
