About this deal

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. It made me laugh out loud and, as a mother of 4 boys, could identify with Ms Khanna's daily juggling act plus the embarrassment I seem to cause them. She dips in and out of intimacy with effortless ease, telling you as much as she wants to and sometimes telling you too much. You can take on this book if you are in need a break, just to clear your mind and let go of everything else; you can actually finish reading this book in one sitting. 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.

We monitor these problems, and we're probably working on a fix right now - try refreshing the page to see if we've already got it working! We then turn into the long private road that leads to our building when the rickshaw driver suddenly says, ‘Madam, that hero Akshay Kumar used to live here but now he lives in Bandra. Twinkle's candid narration about her own quirks and escapades makes her feel like that witty friend you wish you had on speed dial. Hurtling over the compound wall, a yellow ball lands in the garden as I am strolling with my sister-in-law.You lose a child to an accident or an illness, and with a broken heart, you console yourself that you did your best, it’s perhaps God’s will, he has gone to a better place; but when your child decides that the life he has been given, the life where everything he knows is what you have taught him, is not worth living, how do you live with that?

Funnybones" is a refreshing reminder that sometimes, the best way to deal with life's absurdities is to laugh at them. This book talks about the day to day life of Twinkle Khanna; her kids, her famous mother and husband, the superstar Akshay Kumar. She has arranged the chapters according to the 26 letters of the Alphabet, each one giving a glimpse into her thoughts, her insecurities, and some not-so-funny moments. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I am looking forward to reading more, hopefully Twinkle will be able to give us something else to read soon!In essence what I liked was maybe her approach to life, where an irritating situation had something funny to it too. Or maybe it just seemed like it because it didn’t require me to do a lot of thinking or understanding.

I've been following her on Twitter for quite a while now, and have been a fan of her tweets and columns. 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. Though this sounds like most women's lives it is definitely not average (yearly vacations abroad and servants doing most of the work). 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. The book is full of interesting anecdotes and speckled with self-deprecating humour and witty innuendos.Her smelly diaper is still wedged on my head but aside from this rather damp clue, I can’t seem to find her anywhere. Still, I felt that it gets boring after some time but yeah, go for it if you need to get over some book hangover! line spacing and very broad margins, it really wasn’t something even the slowest reader would have trouble finishing in a few hours. 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. She tackles everyday situations – from school drop-offs to dealing with tech-challenged parents – with a side-splitting hilarity that makes you wonder why you never thought of these things before.
