Description

A fantasy novel about a modern-day American boy who wakes up in 1958 India as the reincarnation of John Lennon.

Bollywood Invasion opens when the protagonist, a sixteen-years-old boy from Brooklyn, finds himself with riches and power beyond his wildest fantasies in India, thirty-five years before he was born.

Brooklyn is readily forgotten. Life becomes a constant stream of debauchery, coming to a stand-still only when he meets “the one.” However, love doesn’t come easy. He must become a better man, a pursuit ignited by his memories of Beatles songs on his iPod.

Will these legendary songs change his life?

Can he escape Lennon’s eventual tragic fate?

Will he ever find his way back to Brooklyn?

His fate will unfold in Bollywood Invasion.

Bollywood Invasion blends Indian cultural experience, time-travel blend perfectly with the legendary songs from the Beatles.

I wasn't sure what to expect from Bollywood Invasion. The premise is unique, so I decided to try it. It's a very intriguing story. I could imagine the reality of this story, and what a crazy thing it would be! I found the story refreshing and unique, and I enjoyed it. It's a quirky thought provoking look at an alternate reality. I recommend for anyone who wants something different and entertaining. Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review.

What an unusual story. This was very well executed as well as unpredictable. This has a good plot, interesting characters, and good dialog, which check all the boxed for me. Recommended for sci fi and time travel fans. I really appreciate the ARC for review!!

Wow, what a flight of fancy has the author taken in this book. I was really amazed by the concept. To be honest when I picked up this book with Bollywood in its title written by a non-Indian sounding author's name, I was sure I was going to come across some misguided and misunderstood concept of Bollywood but it has nothing to do with Bollywood, the Indian movie industry that churns out movies like there is no tomorrow. Instead, this book is a fusion of East and West in an alternate universe. Just to tickle your fantasy, imagine your favorite movie celebrity(western) or your favorite music band (western) originating from India and what their life would have been in that case. Without giving out too much, in my opinion this book is thoroughly enjoyable and unlike some books that are written with one type of audience in mind and are hard to understand by someone on the other end of the spectrum, this book is sure to be understood by both eastern and western audiences.
