subtle humor helps through ISC

well... hello there fellow readers.. I bought this book just a week before my +2 level boards. I was searching in flipkart for such a book that that's funny(enough to stitch a smile on your lips but if you are searching for LOL or ROFL types, better check out something else), refreshing and cool, something that doesn't distract me too much from my textbooks but is quite a page turner while reading. Bravo to flip kart... they dished it out pretty soon.. though the delivery boy was dumb enough ...
