Am not a movie buff, but I do know about Twinkle Khanna as an actor, and was quite pleasan March 18, Am not a movie buff, but I do know about Twinkle Khanna as an actor, and was quite pleasantly surprised to see her in the avatar of an ordinary, astute working mother of two, who has a flair for milking out humor from the day to day situations, many of these unique to Indians.
Would love to read more about Mrs. Funnybones, man of the house, the prodigal son and the baby. View all 4 comments. Mar 21, Vani rated it really liked it. There was no way for me to relate to the middle aged, mother of 2 kids with a celebrity husband protagonist of this book, but for Twinkle Khanna's crackling narration. The book is full of interesting anecdotes and speckled with self-deprecating humour and witty innuendos.
The weight jibes, confrontations with 'desi Jeeves', friends and their mothers-in-law and her reference to her husband as 'man of t 'She's just like you and a lot like me,' says the tag line on the book cover of Mrs Funnybones.
The weight jibes, confrontations with 'desi Jeeves', friends and their mothers-in-law and her reference to her husband as 'man of the house' and her son as 'the prodigal son' make this story so close to real life. There are no dull moments in this book and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. A few phrases that I really liked: We have some sort of vanity as well and allowing yourself to be photographed in a state that you would not want to put up on FB, let alone be published in national newspapers, would be rather demented.
When you meet your gynaecologist at a party, he will always look shorter, till you realise that you normally see him when you are flat on your back and he is looming over between your legs. There are only so many 'Gee my life is wonderful' statuses that other people can bear.
Diligently try them on every month. At first, they will go just up your knee; then a month later, a bit higher and with each month that passes, they will go higher and higher, till they reach the ideal fit, whereby you lie down on your bed and pull the zip up.

Or are the men just trying to die earlier to escape the incessant chatter?
I have read this book in one sitting and let me just tell you that I loved it beyond apprehension. I am not a Bollywood person so I didn't know her at that time. But I loved her fierce and nonchalant humor. At the end of that episode, she mentioned Mrs.

I have read this book finally and it has not disappointed me. When I was purchasing the book I read the tagline on it "She's just like you and a lot like me" and my thoughts were how can she be a lot like me?
This book is about her really clever and peculiar view of life. In this book, her husband is referred as the man of the house, her son as the prodigal son, her little daughter as the baby, which I find amusing and different.
This book also has her opinion about feminism, patriarchy, our culture and many other things with a great humor. Her opinions about this things are really similar to mine so I can relate to this book.
All and all if you're looking for a book with good humor and can make you laugh till you cry then I recommend Mrs. Detailed Review link - http: Sep 23, Asra Ghouse rated it it was ok Shelves: This review was first published in The Hans India. It is also this very reason that the book garners interest. Twinkle Khanna, former actress born into a superstar family and married to a superstar husband; Indians love to peek inside celebrity lives.
It is also why most reviews come for Twinkle and not the book per se. However, the book is mostly about being a mother. And, that is where most women can probably relate to her words. There can be no doubt that Twinkle is smart. Her cleverness shines here as she mentions her side of the story and actually gets the reader to empathise with her.
Well played, Twinkle! Presentation wins More than the writing, it is the presentation of the book that wins. There is no sequence to any chapters. It is a witty banter bound with the English alphabet, so we have 26 chapters, each with one letter of the alphabet starting the title.
The subtext is feminism and it is very cleverly represented through the artwork at the beginning of each chapter.
The ladies are curvy, sometimes fat and not perfect, once again trying to win the readers through connection. However, there is such a thing as too much self-degrading humour and after a point the words become repetitive and predictive.
The book has been released under the humour genre. It is not your heart beating fast when you look at him or constantly wanting to be with the other person. Simple, yet profound. But, the book proves to be a light-hearted much-needed break for readers whose life is filled with heavy routine, nagging relatives, demanding jobs or marriage to laugh at nonsensical random stuff.
View 1 comment. Sep 04, Aishwarya Saxena rated it really liked it. Twinkle Khanna, a former actress turned interior decorator turned writer, lets you know early on in her book that she is done with showbiz, decisively so. This is a woman who has moved on, as much as she can being married to who she is. I think one safe assumption would be that she was born into it.
And in many ways this book is really about finally being herself; that is where the subtext gets you, with its honesty and uncharacteristically good-natured take on life. Twinkle Khanna, born to famous film stars and married to one, is not someone you would empathise or identify with and yet her skill in her narrative lies in the fact that when you turn to the last page, that is exactly how you feel.
How does she pull it off? But she is only being thoughtful, and to be fair to her, the most brutal honesty comes when she writes about herself or her alter ego, Mrs Funnybones.
She dips in and out of intimacy with effortless ease, telling you as much as she wants to and sometimes telling you too much. I enjoyed this book for many reasons, it is endearing, funny and well-written. But what makes it special is the casual way in which it addresses the human preoccupation with belonging—one that we all experience—be it to our parents, our careers, our bodies, our partners or their families.
Nov 17, Shoa Khan rated it it was ok Shelves: I had heard some really great things about this book. Although I'd got a copy in a steal deal a while ago, I only picked it up now, when I realized I was yet to embark on my India Challenge for this year. Anyway, it's funny in places, and made for an easy breezy read. Sep 07, Bigsna rated it liked it Shelves: So I just finished Mrs Funnybones today.
Infact, I started it this morning and proudly share that I finished it in less than 24 hours too. That is because at pages, size 12 font, 1.
And that makes Mrs Funnybones a perfect read for a two hour flight for an average reader like me. And so for that I must thank Mrs Funnybones herself. While every review I read is appreciating her self deprecating nature and her manner of presenting everything in a sarcastically light hearted way, there were several instances that made me feel that she was being quite condescending towards common folk.
Maybe elitist would be the right word here. But then maybe that's the honesty everyone is talking about? Twinkle Khanna is definitely a smart, witty, intelligent and very well read person. The book shows that and anyone who reads her columns would see that too.
So it got me thinking, had this book been written by a not so famous person would it still be so well received?
I think maybe not, because it is that very reason that makes the idea of the book so interesting. Some of the jokes were not so original, you can predict ends of sentences; and the repeated use of the word 'blimey' didn't lend to the funniness either, though I do understand how she meant to use it at the end of every little mishap that happened on her day.
In essence what I liked was maybe her approach to life, where an irritating situation had something funny to it too. I came away with a picture of a privileged life, bustling with activity, the perks of being a star wife of a very successful actor, loads of travel and the added but natural responsibilities of raising children — which all together built this comfortable alluring world that does look ideal when there is humor and a daft joke thrown in now n then.
