Intelligent humor here, all are punch lines
every sentence has humor hidden
Must read because we all need some intelligent humor in life
senseless humor is all around us, but wise words are few
go for this one, the way this book ends, you won't believe it
its like an anti-climax

Melvin takes a plunge...right into our funny bone

As someone who've loved Melvin's quirkly style of puns largely centered around mad word play for over 10 years now, I got to say, the book doesn't disappoint at all. Do NOT read this for a great plotline or a twist in the tale or as a great literary classic, it makes absolutely no such pretentions. The book is meant to be a fun joyride on a lazy afternoon while lounging around in a cozy sofa. The characters are well-etched with all their witty eccentricities which makes me suspect of a movie in the making. I especially liked the dad, with his series of malapropisms, all of which are even more

Muffled giggles on an airplane

I picked this up because it looked like a nice, easy read for a two-hour flight. I hadn't heard of Melvin Durai or read his columns earlier and the book was my first introduction to his writing--and what writing! I had to keep from emitting loud snorts and giggles on the plane. An absolutely wonderful book--I could totally relate to it. Funny and sensitive, it shows great insight into Indian culture/thinking.
