Zesty, subversive and warm-hearted, Instant Karma is internationally bestselling author David Michie at his thought-provoking best.
'Imagine if karma went instant?' said Anton. 'How crazy would that be?'
What if we all woke one day to discover that every act of generosity was followed, soon after, by an unexpected windfall? If theft or betrayal led to rapid calamity? Within minutes, the effects of instant karma would be felt by each one of us. Within hours it wouldn't just be ordinary folks trying to figure out the new order - it would be everyone from the President down.
Instant Karma is the story of that day. An extraordinary vision, by turns hilarious and poignant, and early adopters are quick to capitalise on the new dynamics while karma change deniers vehemently dig in their heels. A little-known Buddhist monk, Lama Tashi, suddenly becomes TV's go-to man, sought out for the wisdom he imparts with such oceanic benevolence. Amid the roller coaster of events, Instant Karma takes us to unexplored places. How much would human behaviour change if we had to live with the immediate consequences of our actions?
