Woah!

I cant believe someone gave this book one star! Inscrutable Americans is BY FAR one of the funniest book (by an Indian author)I have read. It is something I keep revisiting when I'm feeling a little low are it cheers me up right away! Anurag Mathur's writing is hilarious and well timed.

I agree one could consider this slapstick and must have a stomach for occasional lewd humour, but hey, what the hell! I read to escape and what a sweet escape this is!

Fabulous Book!!

To be honest, i didn't know of this book till recently. I read a very funny book called Amreekandesi - Masters of America (highly recommended), and then read that Inscrutable Americans is based on the same theme, and immediately ordered it.

I must say this is one awesome book. The characters are too funny, and the situations are hilarious. Very happy to have found these two great books, both on the similar theme of how Indians behave when they land up in a US university setting.

Its an 1990's rich indian's visit to US university...life turns when he is there!

One of the greatest experience i had reading is this book. Typical Indian rich family,who sends their son to study in "videsh". Initially he was a shy Indian guy with shy,antiquated,innocent indian beliefs, but turns out to be a monster at the end in search of love and loosing his virginity(dirty american secret). With all funny and crazy incidents....its definitively worth one time read...u will surely love this guy and his "karnamay" with full of innocence.....Mr.Mathur's illustrations and...

Nothing Great !!!

To be honest, when I first read the title of the book and small description about it, I felt it was interesting. So I happen to get a hand on it from a local library. Though after reading the book, I was really disatisfied. The book was interesting till the main character i.e. Gopal lands in America but after that the complete book is crap. I had to literally skip many paragraphs as I found them boring. It just revoles around only one topic till the end. If someone wants then they can read it...

Excellent

The book is great but the most important thing is that it was in a really good condition. The quality of the pages are good. And they deliver before time.

Could have been better!

Good! Considering the time when it has been written.
Depiction of the character 'Gopal' is worth appreciating.
I felt it should have been much better for the Internet era youth!

1 thing that you could look for in this book is 'the letters' that Gopal writes to his brother back to India with hilarious so called 'English of an Indian'.

90s classic, not for 2010s

its a book well written as per 90s...but the storyline may not sound so good when there are plethora of such books in similar viens. if you love 90s u will love it, otherwise may be difficult to finish the book...I am also struglling to finsih it...
3 rating as I can understand it would have created a huype in 90s

interesting journey

The book provides an interesting enquiry into the ''culture shock'' that an Indian student is likely to face when he lands up in an American University. Though it is written in a jovial, comical yet sarcastical way, it convey the inherent differences in our cultures. The writer's sense of hunour is typical and unimitable. Its a must read.
The rigidity of our mindset (which sticks like the Hair Oil) and the open society which the student enters into are two poles and the new entrant finds i...

One Pleasant Read.

I probably would remember reading this book as a great time spent. And, there are still some 20 pages left! I generally don't write reviews, but this book just deserves a great review. The writing is witty. American life given from a perspective of a small town Indian boy, a perspective an average Indian should be able to relate to. Just go for it!
