Maybe expecting the same sort of sarcastic dry humor through out the book was a mistake. Although there are glimpses of it in the book, I found the entire book not very enjoyable. We get a glimpse into the life of a working women juggling her career, mil and husband. Though this sounds like most women's lives it is definitely not average yearly vacations abroad and servan So I have seen Twinkle Khanna on certain talk shows and at times it felt like she had no filter and I found her pretty funny.
Though this sounds like most women's lives it is definitely not average yearly vacations abroad and servants doing most of the work.
Most of the book is about her experiences as a mother, with barely a glimpse of the film industry she belongs to.
She doesn't really mention her career much either. The A-Z chapters in the book dint really connect with me. There is no story progression as such and each chapter dint even feel like a short story.
The bits I really liked though were her advice to her son about knowing when it is time to give up, her take on women's empowerment and her thoughts on the whole unbuttoning jeans scandal. Oct 22, Rebecca rated it liked it Shelves: It was a fun read. Though some of the gross jokes made me cringe there were parts which made me laugh. I loved the way the author looks at life, marriage and children. There were some inferences she had drawn from her experiences in life and they were warmly expressed.
Such a short book and it was a surprise to learn that bollywood actresses think so deeply. A little more of polishing and pruning would have made it better. After some much intense back to back fantasy reading I've done, this was a very light read. The book reads easy, is funny in places and is like taking a breather.
If you're looking for something breezy and a short read, this is for you. Aug 12, Vivek Tejuja rated it it was amazing. Books that take you out of a reading slump are hard to come by. I had n Books that take you out of a reading slump are hard to come by. I had not read any of her columns. It is hilarious and I cannot stop recommending it enough. I could not stop turning the pages. I could also not stop giggling like a school girl.
There is also a lot of profundity in the book without it being too preachy and that is what I loved second best after the humour. The writing just flows and humour is sometimes obvious and sometimes not, which is what I call, balanced. Whether she is talking about her man Jeeves whom she calls desi Jeeves and that somehow cracked me up to the time she was on a flight to Delhi and had to deal with a mother and her baby who decided that it was potty time on flight and what followed later was just laugh-out-loud and disgusting at the same time, she conjures life as is, without any frills and pretensions.
We need more honest writing like this I guess. My favourite parts were the ones that involved her Mom — how she was made fun of as a child and also of how she keeps getting these emails from her with her baby and teenage picture attachments. It was a laugh riot and at times I could not help but think of what she says about growing up, life, and everything in between. There is something which everyone can relate to — if not house issues, then about the state of the country, issues which she deals with great subtlety and wit.
Like I said, I cannot stop recommending this book to everyone. I will get back to it in bits and parts when I am feeling down and about, so I can laugh and forget what is going on around me, at least temporarily.
Mar 04, Book'd rated it really liked it Shelves: I really don't understand why The author Twinkle Khanna went into movies at all. If she would have taken up writing since her debut in films, she would have been an established author by now having a few movies up her sleeve based on her books.
To sum up in short, this book is not a story but a sort of daily diary of a woman, wife and a mother. The way to look at the daily challenges of life is what we should learn from her. Ofcourse she is a celebrity and it shows up in her writing but I must s I really don't understand why The author Twinkle Khanna went into movies at all.
Ofcourse she is a celebrity and it shows up in her writing but I must say, she is an expert when it comes to hunting humor in every situation. Be cautious if u read while travelling like me, your co passengers may get amused seeing you laughing your hearts out to a book: It's a good book but seems more of something that should be put up on a personal blog involving Twinkle's daily life instances which relate to most of the common Indian housewives, their experiences with their mother-in-laws, kiddos, husband and other routine things.
She surely has witty remarks on different things and pretty cool about some stuff. Still, I felt that it gets boring after some time but yeah, go for it if you need to get over some book hangover! Mar 19, Makrand rated it liked it Shelves: Twinkle Khanna seems like an absolutely Word-wise, quite frank and impish personality which is reflected in her extremely satirical Mrs Funnybones!
I loved to read the rants and musings described in her daily life in the book. Funnybones isn't just about few incidences in the life of the author but if you come to think of it, more or less, it's a part and parcel of every women's life at least in India. From parenting to feminism, from handling papparazzi's to Mom-in-Law, from tackling Man in t Twinkle Khanna seems like an absolutely Word-wise, quite frank and impish personality which is reflected in her extremely satirical Mrs Funnybones!
From parenting to feminism, from handling papparazzi's to Mom-in-Law, from tackling Man in the house to Karva Chauth, Twinkle treads on various topics quite gracefully!
In these 26 chapters marked A-Z which is unique since she has managed to start every chapter with letter corresponding to the chapter number.
So, Chapter 2 is B: Young underdogs! Another unique thing is the way Mr. Along with her satirical writings, i also loved a hint of philosophical writing that Twinkle has added, like this one: I am a misfit here, like most women that enter families which are so different from theirs. But I keep these thoughts to myself and stay. And for the next few hours, matching all the cousins, step for step, I make my own little place.
Will I inhabit this spot in perpetuum? I am not sure, but right now, with a string of borrowed jasmine flowers wrapped around my bun to mask the smell of yogurt, and my dupatta fluttering in the draught from the creaky air conditioner, I dance to the drumbeats and the night slips away.
A Punjabi mother, her son and food form a triad as sacred as Brahma, Mahesh and Vishnu, and cannot be interfered with as I learnt in the early years of my marriage. The husband fetches the architectural plans of the house and comes next to my chair. He bends over trying to unroll the plans on the table, and the motion dislodges the intestinal gas which till this moment has been probably lying dormant inside his posterior which by the way, is four inches away from my face and lets out a noisy, flatulent missile.
I almost choke on the noxious odour but the couple just continue the conversation as if nothing out of the ordinary has just transpired.
It takes all my years of yoga training to maintain a straight face and I hurriedly finish the meeting. All right, so now I am sitting in an aromatic cloud of shit and Chanel No 5. I don't understand why readers find 'Mrs Funnybones' funny. It wasn't really funny.
Though it can be termed as a good satirical laugh but I won't say that my stomach rolled into fits of laughter and my eyes burst with tears while reading this one. Despite not being into non-fiction, I pre-ordered this book.
Thanks to liberty Books in Pakistan, otherwise I wouldn't get my hands on this one quite soon and I don't know for how long I had to wait. Obviously, the curiosity to read a book from a cele I don't understand why readers find 'Mrs Funnybones' funny. Obviously, the curiosity to read a book from a celebrity turned interior designer turned author - Twinkle Khanna daughter of celebrities Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia and wife of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar was always there.
Getting published from Penguin is unchallenging and effortless for a celebrity. They'd soon acknowledge work coming from a celebrity and turn the author into a bestseller overnight. Writers like us have to work hard to achieve this title. Coming back to the book, like I earlier said, it was a good satirical laugh. Twinkle has written the book from her own perspective. She describes the way her life revolves around man of the house, prodigal son, little one and her mothers.
Though I felt bad when Akki kept calling by Man of the house. I mean she could use his name instead. At first I thought the basic idea behind this novel somewhat resembled to Moni Mohsin's Butterfly but I was hence proved wrong when I read it. The writing style is highly different and of course I would proudly say our Moni writes even better.
Her writing style really made me laugh like riot! There were a few chapters which I genuinely liked from Mrs. Funnybones; especially the ones that ended up giving a strong message. Twinkle hasn't been new to the writing world; she has been writing columns for quite a time which now has compiled in a form of a book. Nonetheless, there's no denying to the fact that Twinkle herself is sassy, sarcastic and downright funny - it reflects highly from her writing.
She has a great sense of humor which clearly shows in her book and blogs. I'd like to finish with a note that she is definitely a better author than an actor. Read it for a refreshing change and relax your brain muscles. View 2 comments. Nov 25, Bookish Devil rated it did not like it. Wish I could Rate it 'Zero Stars'! Twinkle Khanna. There was nothing in the book that made me smile.
Din't even make my lips twitch. There wasn't even a story in this book. It seemed as though she wrote this book while for time pass rather than taking it seriously. Her writing was good. But the story,jokes etc were too bland and pointless. I don't think i should spend I really feel for those who spent their hard earned money in downloading this book: My review might be harsh but that's how i feel!!
Unlike other reviewers, I don't sugarcoat my opinions and feelings about a book. Aug 19, D rated it really liked it.

Can we respond to you about this? The skeletons venture out of their cellar one night to find someone to scare, but everyone is in bed so they amuse themselves by scaring each other and playing with the skeleton animals that live in the zoo. There are lots of books in the Funnybones series.
