Favourite Quote: “In my opinion, growing older is all about learning and passing it on, otherwise there is no reason for biological evolution to keep us alive after our reproductive years are over.”
Let me start by telling you that I am not a fan of Twinkle Khanna’s acting, but surely am fond of her writing skills. Twinkle Khanna is a regular columnist for the Times of India and surely has never hesitated in putting forth her take on things. Mrs FunnyBones is a peek into her life, much more entertaining than her columns. If you are a Bollywood junkie, you wouldn’t miss this opportunity to peek into a book written by an ex-star married to a super star. 😉
This book is an account of her daily life, with day-to-day incidences well described with a lot of sarcastic humor. She addresses her family members, which also happen to be her key characters in the book with catchy names like Man of the house, the prodigal son, etc. When you actually read the book and peer into her life, you will realize that her life is so much like the ordinary woman’s life, trying to make the best of both worlds, balancing work and personal life and in between trying to steal some self time.
The book is truly entertaining with a lot of incidences that will make you grin. The writing is very upfront, sarcastic, witty and funny. The former actress hasn’t hesitated in taking blows on herself. There are a few special mentions of how happy she is with her name. 😉 The book truly lives up to its name. It will not take you more than a couple of hours to finish this book. I read it on one fine afternoons and it was truly worth my time. What are your thoughts on the book? I will be happy to hear your reviews.
