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.

I highly recommend this book.
