My Review:

I was expecting a very humorous book when I first heard about this! But I highly disappointed. This book didn’t carry it well what it supposed to say. For once there is no purpose/concept on this book. It’s a life story of Kunal Nayyar from his childhood to his wedding. I couldn’t find anything aspiring, impressive, or even humourous(Other than one scene)! maybe for his close friends& parents it may be appealing! Being a South Indian and from a middle-class family, I couldn’t relate with any of his childhood memories to cherish/feel nostalgic. And his life in America as a student mostly consist of girls & how to impress them! His struggles as an international student portion were neither funny nor serious and so didn’t make any impact.  I loved the final wedding chapters they were hilarious and love to read about the ceremony! otherwise, this book could do much better in every aspect!

Thoughts while reading:

  • The memories of his dad and childhood were good to read but nothing special about them.img_6836
  • The way he struggled as an international student gave a very little glimpse of student life.As I told above its neither humorous nor serious!
  • img_6835
  • His acting aspirations definitely made us understood the real pain behind the career but didn’t make much impact. img_6832
  • The final wedding chapter was wonderful. I laughed out loud ( that’s the only time throughout the book) at the sword thing it’s really hilarious I could only imagine the seriousness in Kunal’s tone and the deep understanding face of Jason’s 🤣img_6834
  • It didn’t define the real Indian middle-class life nor about its rich culture. If you hope to find “Life in India as a kid ” through this book please spare! this isn’t the one! it’s just a boring story of Kunal Nayyar .kind of his journal that records his life’s important happenings!img_6831
