Verdict: ☆☆☆☆ 7/5 A nice and funny book that will tickle your bones as per the Title. Each and every chapter is based on our daily life and it is presented in a very funny way that will surely make you laugh till the end. A must read book to get some laughing dose.
About The Author: Twinkle Khanna, aka Mrs Funnybones, crafts satirical stories and funny fables when she is not running a design business, selling candles or running in circles around her small but rather odd family. She narrowly escaped a gruesome tragedy when Bollywood tried to bludgeon her brain to the size of a pea, but she ducked at the right moment and escaped miraculously unharmed. She is a popular columnist and is a regular contributor to The Times of India and DNA After Hrs. Currently, she is in the process of creating lame jokes like, ‘Why do all Hindu boys worship their mother? Because their religion tells them to worship the cow.’ She firmly believes that nothing in life is sacred except laughter.
About The book: Good morning, it’s 6 a.m. and I am wide awake because the man of the house has decided that he needs to perform a series of complex manoeuvres that involve him balancing on his left elbow. When I fell asleep last night, there was a baby lying next to me. Her smelly diaper is still wedged on my head but aside from this rather damp clue, I can't seem to find her anywhere. I could ask my mother-in-law if she has seen the baby, but she may just tell me that I need to fast on alternate Mondays, and God will deliver the baby back to me . . . Full of wit and delicious observations, Mrs Funnybones captures the life of the modern Indian woman—a woman who organizes dinner each evening, even as she goes to work all day, who runs her own life but has to listen to her Mummyji, who worries about her weight and the state of the country. Based on Twinkle Khanna’s super-hit column, Mrs Funnybones marks the debut of one of our funniest, most original voices.
Review: The cover is nice and beautiful crafted. The title is interesting and perfectly suited with the concept. It will surely tickle your bones and make you laugh. While reading this book in metro or in office, I could not control my laughter and people started looking at me as why I am laughing without reason. I just enjoyed twinkle’s writing style. We all belive that Stars are super Hero’s but this book clearly shows us that they too have life just like us and they also face difficult situations and that what Author had narrated in this book with a funny touch that will make you laugh like hell. She had talked on every issue from girlfriends to boyfriends, from mother-in law to sister inlaw, from men to menstruation in a very light hearted way that will surely make you laugh. She is just like a normal human being who plays pranks travel in a Rickshaw. I just enjoyed reading every bit of it. As a reader, I will recommend everyone to read this book and enjoy laughing dose. A witty and humorous tale that will release your stress of daily life..
